    I've got a new 8-6 extreme v on an f250 and the gap between the two cutting edges where the plow v's is leaving a trail of snow behind and driving me insane! I've got a 9-6 western v on a f550 and that plow has a rubber shoe where the edges meet and there is no trail left behind. Dealer told me they don't make that for the Fisher. Any of you guys having this problem?

    You should be able to adjust the two center sections of the cutting edge to close the gap.
     
  3. A brand new XV cutting edge is adjustable but it won't adjust enough, I've found. I had to slightly trim my inner pieces with a torch.

    Yep either take the torch to them or find a friend who works in a machine shop and have him slot them for you. We had to do that last year with a set of edges. Fortunately we have a few friends in the tool and die business

    What are you torching? You hear and bend it or you cut slots to adjust it? Mine has no slots to adjust

    Yes you slot them so you can move them closer together
     
  7. The two middle pieces are slotted from the factory, just not enough. Aftermarket replacement edges are better.

    Check your center pin too. Make sure it isn't bent badly. It really shouldn't affect the cutting edge too much but it can slightly. Mine bends every year.
