    :help:

    Hi I just bought this plow off of ebay for 1625.00 complete. Im curious if anyone has any info on these plows such as how reliable they are ? or if they have any weak spots that i should be aware of?

    Also i plan on putting it in for sevice as soon as i pick it up ,it has a broken/chipped cutting edge. what is the best choice for replacement .. it currently has steel .. i may be plowing on some gravel ..some of which isnt very level or even

    How often do you actually use the down force?

    Thanks

    Plowing gravel is an ideal venue for a urethane cutting edge.

    Urethane can actually outlast a steel edge.

    Urethane not only out lasts steel but it is far less damaging to both the plowed surface as well as the plowing equipment.

    Urethane will perform better and won't tear up the truck, you, or stuff you run over.

    As for downpressure, it is handy for backdragging, punching through tracked and packed stuff. Not recommended to run it all the time. Makes up for the lower weight of the plow. Play with it and see what works best.
