    So after some time i was finally able to locate a new cutting edge for my xtreme v that wasn't outrageously priced. Just had the edge installed and I'm looking at the plow and it appears that the outer edges are getting contact with the pavement while the insides are not.( same in all positions, scoop,v or straight) Also with the light coating of snow in the driveway i tested it this am and it proved my suspicions correct only scraped the first 6 inches or so from the ends of the plow and that was it. also upon further looking i noticed that the cutting edge actually gauged my drive way at the corners of the blade as well as the inside where it v's. is the edge not installed properly? btw its the new 4 pc. kit :help:


    Thanks for your help,

    Dan

    drop it on the road while driving and it will wear even for you won't take much does not sound like a big deal to me

    Is the plow in the same mounting hole as when the first cutting edge was new? or did you adjust holes as the edge wore away? My center dug into the pavement as well when it was new. Once it wore it it's fine.

    If only the ends hit, even with the plow straight, something is really messed up. Or, your driveway has a negative crown.

    If you don't have a nice flat garage floor to check things out, take your truck to a bank drivethrough or gas pump. Somewhere with a nice flat concrete pad. Set the blade straight, and lower it slowly. It would be good to have a helper lower the blade while you watch. The entire edge should hit at the same time. It should not change when you go to float. Do this in vee and scoop also. Take some pics and post them. Also, when your blade is down, there should be plenty of slack in the chain.

    Also, check your center pin/hinges for wear. With the blade staight, and up in the air, lift the ends of the wings up and down. How much movement is there?
