    There are couple of aftermarket places online that sell "Boss Like" cutting edges but it's a cheaper steel.

    I had a buddy with a boss and got one from Cleves in Needham, this was a few years ago I don't know if they still carry Boss, I know they have fisher but its worth a call. Also try Turner Steel

    Why don't you want one from a Dealer?

    I get majorly screwed outthere for cutting edge prices for the Hiniker....3/8 inch is 172 after tax, and the 1/2 inch edge is 230 after tax.

    Talk about bending over.

    I was thinking about drilling new holes in the plow so I could start using the 1/2inch fisher edges that only cost 110 bucks.

    Make sure no matter where you get them, that they're filed by hand before purchasing.
