    I'm looking for some help. I have a 6.5HS Fisher blade I currently have a Polly cutting edge on it and it is wearing very quickly. I would like to put a Steel cutting edge on however Fisher indicated they do not make one for this blade.

    While out plowing the other night I saw the exact same plow as mine and it had a steel edge on it. I guess my questions is if I were to buy a 7 1/2 steel cutting edge would the bolt holes match up to my plow. I understand there will be some overhang which I will cut off. Any help I would appreciate .

    I dont think the 7-6 will match up. You could always buy a 3/8 or 1/2 thick piece of flat stock and use your poly edge as a template to drill holes.

    Bolt pattern is different between the two,i've made a dozen or so from 3/8 x 6" flat stock,use the poly as a guide to drill like Crash indicated,much cheaper than the poly junk too:nod:

    Check with a local welding shop or check the yellow pages for steel suppliers.

    Called a local welding shop this afternoon he has a 1/2 x 6 x 6.5 in stock. Would this be to thick for my plow or should it fit alright with the trip edge?

    it would be perfect, also add a little weight to help with backdragging

    Big Nate's What weight are you referring to for back dragging. I also put on the deflector I bought from you on e-bay works great.

    3/8" x 6" tall weighs approx 5½ pounds a foot and ½"x6" weighs about 8 pounds a foot. a little extra weight on the home steaders (250# themselves) will improve the backdragging ability of the blade

    glad the deflector is working, what height was it? (dont remember)

    Big Nate's I understand now. It's not a homestead plow it a regular fisher plow. I bought the 6.5 x 6 deflector worked great last storm.
