ATV Plow Edge

    I've used my ATV only a few times this year, and the cutting edge on my brand new Warn plow is already down to nothing.

    Any suggestions on a replacement edge and where to get them? My mechanic thinks the poly blade is too thick for the ATV and will cause the blade to fold over...too heavy. Any thoughts here as well?

    Thanks in advance.

    The poly edge works great on quads, we had the same problem that you have, the metal edge on them wears very quick, so we started using poly edges and they don't wear nearly as quick.

    go to home depot and get a piece of steel that is about the samee size as ur current blade, and then drill some holes in it (using the old blade as a template) sure beats buying one

    We use a western sport utility edge. Cut to length and cut in new holes. On some of the ATV's we cut the holes in the center to create a blade that can be flipped over like the old western center punched blades. These 1/4" edges are 1080 carbon steel and hold up well. Jerre

    Get a urethane edge. We've been using it all season. Some wear on it, but it's fine. The edge has about 70 miles on it (odometer reading). The best part is the reduced triping. The number of times I ate the handle bars with the steel edge versus now. Before I didn't want to plow over 6 to 7 miles an hour with the steel edge. Now, I comfortably plow at 8 to 12 miles an hour depending on depth and the sidewalk since the urethane edge rides over the pavement imperfections. I'll admit I've hit 15 plus an hour on a known area of sidewalk. I didn't fear tripping with the urethane - and didn't for that matter.

    Cost wise - fairly in expensive considering the 8" wide piece of material gets ripped into two 4" wide pieces - giving you at least 4 wear surfaces if not more. I think the cutting edges will outlast the ATV at this point.

    I piece of urethane 3/4" thick 8" wide will cost 17.00 per foot with shipping. So 4' would be like 70.00 and you would get 2 edges from it. If you center drill each piece you will have 4 wear surfaces, that like was mentioned will probably outlast the plow. Call me at 860-608-1842 and I will be happy to order one for you.
