    does anyone know what kind of steal they make boss cutting edges out of cuz i was wondering about getting some made out of AR450 because we go threw a crap ton of cutting edges and boss ones are getting expansive so if you know what kind of steal boss makes them out of or you know of a company aftermarket that makes them out of AR450 or better let me know THANKS

    jason, they make formable AR plate, its formed to make the bends and then i think it is sent to the heat treater. i tried to find 6"x1/2" to make them but harbor steel couldnt locate any. i dont think it is cost effective to make them considering i paid 170.00 for one 10' piece of AR non formable 6x"1/2". regular AR is what you have on your hoe or loader bucket i think.

    T1 if you're making them yourself or Winter Edges if you want the stockers to last much longer.

    Try Buyers Products, they sell replacment edges much cheaper than OE.
