    So we have had a decent winter, I plow with down force all most all of the time. This is my second edge this year. Its 5\8" thick and six" long my cost is $516.
    And it looks like we are going to get slammed over the next week. So glad to have it ready to go.

    I'm guessing you get them made at a local shop? Why does it have the bevel?

    Yep I get them from a local shop, I believe the bevel is because it was meant for a loader bucket. Its the best options we have found.

    I can't believe you went through a (new?) cutting edge already! Since you say down pressure I'm guessing a Snoway?

    Yep I was hoping to make a hole season this year with one, but we have been plowing since the third week of October. Last year we plowed snow on the 10th of May.
    This is a cutting edge is for my little guy a John Deere 3520.

    Wow you way over paid for that. That's about $250 around here and they are 8" tall and don't have the bevel.

    Maybe they would last longer if the edge wasn't beveled?
