    I having a new 8' X-blade installed on my truck as I type. My question is do the X-Blades come with a steel cutting edge on them or is it extra? Also, my old plow was an MM1 8' HD and on that plow I was advised to wear the trip edge down before adding a cutting edge. Is the X-Blade similar?

    Xblade should have on on it and its a flip with 10 bolts. Do yourself a favor and go over to a non flip

    Yes, they DO come with the plow. The XV and X blade are constructed different, and therefore require it in order to operate it. Where as the XLS and the HD/RD....whatever else they have going on these days, have a base angle to utilize, hence why it is an option.....extra $$. As if a $5000 for a plow is enough insult....but I suppose that is another topic altogether.

    When you say new. Do you mean new to you or brand new? if brand new stick with the flip for a year. Dont mess with your warranty

    Does not come with one new BUT was strongly recommended to us in sales & service schools that a new one be sold w/ it. Will not leave my shop w/o an edge.
