    Generally I buy from local shops, but there are quite a few vendors if you look on plowsite from a computer,also use the search option

    A lot depends on what brand plow or equipment your running, and the type of part. Need more info.

    What is a scrapper edge? I always buy new ones from a supplier they run about 110-130 for a 7'6" blade

    I think by the guys saying more info they mean the size and brand name of the plow in question

    Bingo. Also, are you buying for a fleet or do you own one plow? Your not going to buy one 10' edge off the internet and have it shipped to you like a shirt off Amazon. Usually it's more cost effective to buy municipal size parts from a local dealer or buy in bulk.
