    :help:I just bought another MM 8.5'. I was told it was a 2002 model and thats it...The plow has no cutting edge. I now need to add a cutting edge.... First off how do i know what series or model blade i have? Then should i go steel carbide or rubber? The majority of my plowing is crusher run or gravel driveways with a few commercial asphalt parking lots and some concrete... I dont do a whole lot of plowing but more then a homeowner...... I dont plan on keeping this truck for more then 2 or 3 yrs so I dont need something to last a lifetime but i dont want to change it every year..... Should i go 6" or 8"? Can I just take a piece of 1/2" steel and fab my own I was told they are carbon steel and a regular steel plate would wear out in a half season.... My other truck has a fisher mm with an edge and doesnt seem to be worn out and already i have 3 seasons on that but i dont know what it is since it came on the plow Thanks for reading my lengthy post I search but found nothing to answer these ques. Also will a 9' Edge bolt up and then i can hack off the overhang with a plasma cutter?

    Thanks Again:help:

    Just get a 1/2 (or 5/8) x 6 x 8.5 from your Fisher dealer. It will bolt right up. It's not worth screwing around to save a few bucks.

    I would NOT get an 8 inch edge with all the gravel you plow. That will be tripping non stop.
