    I have an older Fisher 6 1/2' conventional plow on my 95 Jeep Wrangler. I have plowed with it for 14 years and the blade is on its last leg.. I have replaced everything over the past year or so except the blade. There are a lot of worn out blades available or lighter duty blades like the Homesteader but I would like to keep a beefy blade. I was wondering if a HS blade would work and if so are they still available. We get over 100" of snow so it gets a good workout. I am open to any ideas from the experts.

    I'm assuming your talking about the mold board and not the cutting edge. How bad is it? any pixs you can post of it? You maybe able to put a poly sheet over it,

    Pics would help. There's still a ton of those blades running. Just need to find one that hasn't had much use.

    Slick job Poncho! Snow probably doesn't stick! quick and easy no welding or painting!

    Doesn't stick....Well, maybe a bit at the top of the cutting edge......You can see how cheap I am, I redrilled the edge and flipped it over......LOL

    hey whatever works! if it moves the snow thats all that counts-- Poly sure is a fix for that blade thats a sponge --won't take too long + no need to paint! Just drill a few holes up top and Bam! I'm going to mention it to a buddy whose top is starting to show signs of rot (MM1) --we were thinking of reskinning the thing this spring --WHY! I really like your fix!
