    I am wondering if there is interest in Dual edged scraper for all plows. I just made a 52 inch scraper Blade for $30 it is adjustable and reversable.

    If you mean a reversible edge, they suck IMO. Why would you want the added maintenance of flipping an edge when you can just run one that isn't center punched until it is worn out.

    Center punched edges just mean more work for you and give you no additional wear life IMO.

    Doublesided edge

    My original Idea of an adjustable edge strip was bad but a reversible one is working out great it is the piece is 4 inches wide and gives me quite a bit more usage. Also 1/8 thick very durable for very inexpensive. Blackline Plow was selling one for $70 mine was done for 35 and twice the scraper. I can fabricate one for possibly any size plow for half the price of new one.

    If you're talking for an ATV plow you probably should post in the ATV section- not the truck section. 1/8, even 1/4 scraper edges won't last a single storm on a truck plow.

    Price depends on the current cost of steel too. I think my last 8 foot x 1/2 was $95 or so.
