Tapered cutting edge on plow...

    Well i was told the previous owner of my plow would supply me with a new edge after i bought it. He showed up with an edge for a loader. :dizzy: No holes punched or anything. But, I have access to an iron worker for free so i wont be into it anything.

    If its not gonna be an issue how would you guys go around mounting it? I made a quick little diagram with the options i thought of. I'm leaning towards option "A" right now. I know it'll wear quick for the first bit but its a 1/2 in cutting edge so once its past the taper it should be fine. Option "B" would probably not work. Option "C" would make the edge a bit shorter but would work like a normal then. Since its here and cut to length i'd like to use it. What do you guys think? Mess with it or just go get a western one?

    Yeah C is best. The other options will just wear the edge faster.

    I would go with C. I buy that type of cutting edge from the local steel yard and it comes like that. I actually like the bevel up because there is less of a lip for snow and ice to hang on to right there. I haven't had any issues running it like that and have been doing it like that for years. I wish I had an ironworker I just torch the holes.
