    i recently purchased a truck and it came with a uni-mount mvp. i am in the process of redoing the plow and i need a cutting edge. maybe i am looking at the site wrong, but why is the cutting edge about $130 per side?

    Thank the inflation of steel prices..

    $135 per side isn't expensive now. A pair of cutting edges for many of the V's are nearly $400 these days. :realmad:

    i think that is such b/s since a cutting edge for a standard plow is at most $200. in my opinion basically the same thing just cut in half for a vee. i know it is not quite that simple, but you know what i mean

    B&B- i completely understand. like i said i am new to vee-plows as these one came as a bonus with the truck, usually use a straight blade. i was just putting my feelers out there and making sure i was reading correctly, and vetning a little at the same time. i work at a gas turbine shop where we have plenty of steel and milling machines, so i will just take my time and make my own cutting edge.

    nobletousha13- it probably is not, but do you know it that is for a full cutting edge, or just one side?

    Thanks guys,
    Riley
