    I don't see a cutting edge on there. The material depends on what your doing. I've always used steel since I imagine the rubber or poly would wear real fast. I'm not sure though.

    Do they make cutting edges for the trip-edge plows? or are they just for the straight blades.

    You have a cutting edge on there it is bolted on the front of the trip edge. They don't sell new plows with out a cutting edge. I just looked at the pic closer and there is no bolts in the wholes I would call your dealer and tell them to get you one.

    Other wise you would destroy the trip edge and have to replace that and I'm sure it will be alot more expensive then a cutting edge.

    That puppy is looking pretty good, what is the deal with the cutting edges on those. Do you put one on after the first year like the fishers?

    I dont know anything about the cutting edges. I do know that i hooked up the plow tonight and it feels like im losing power steering. drove around all day today with no plow and it was fine, as soon as i hooked it to the plow it acted up... any ideas?

    Plows are heavy. More weight on front tires puts more friction between them and the pavement, which makes it harder to steer.

    I notice it in my truck too. Mainly only at a complete stop, on pavement(not icey), and when cold.

    elawn- im in Rocky Hill.
    about the cutting edge, let it wear down before you throw a blade on. depending on your use, could be one or 2 years. im on my second year and still not down very far at all on the factory edge.
