    I have an Arctic steel 7.5 foot plow- not sure what the blade is made of - It's bolted horizontal across plow- If it gets worn- can it be flipped upside down?

    Does it have a cutting edge on the top and bottom? I think you'd be better off installing a cutting edge if it gets worn, rather than flipping the plow upside down. From the pics I see using a quick google search my answer would be no it can't be flipped-it appears as if the bottom edge is constructed with a cutting edge.

    Arctics cutting edge can be flipped... The bolt holes are exactly centered and should line up perfectly. It's a simple design... quite surprised other staight blades aren't the same... (Flipping the cutting edge I think is what you mean... not the whole plow.)

    You must be talking about the cutting adge and not the plow itself?
    Flip the cutting edge or get a new one.
