    I am in need of an 8 foot cutting egde for my conventional fisher plow. This Truck that I bought a while back in april or may the trip edge was worn do really small. So someone before me welded 3/8 thick plate to the bottom of the springs and then weld it to the trip edge. so I need an extra wide cutting edge. My question is that are these cutting edges harden steel. Or are they just regular steel. So i was going to get a wide pices of steel and cut my own holes and do it like that. THANKS:bluebounc

    Bedford autoparts always had the 5/8 x 8" tall edges for the Fishers in stock. They are off 128 at 225

    They're made of 1090 carbon steel if you plan to use your own. I believe it should be 3/8"x6".

    Running a larger cutting edge like that is nice for a number of reasons, but I would never put one on just because of the extra stress you're putting on the hydraulic motor and lift components. I would love to run one on mine, but the extra weight makes it not worth the aggrevation, IMO.

    I believe the standard on an 8ft fisher is 1/2" by 6", but seriously, just go for the 5/8 X 8 blade, its not that much more weight, its almost the same price and its well worth it, it will last longer. The damn pumps are made for this ****, they can take it. Its Fisher. Enough said.

    I ran the edge plus a U edge behind it. Never a problem with the extra weight
