Tips for replacing cutting edges 810?

    I am about to replace the cutting edges on my 2007 810 for the first time myself. In the past, I had my dealer do it but he retired two years ago. I plan on keeping the plow on the truck but using stand jacks underneath for safety. I have a 25" breaker bar and a 20" ratchet both for 1/2" sockets.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    Usually you need a air impact and a torch to get them loose. I doubt you will get them with a breaker bar but it doesnt hurt to try

    Spray them with a penetrating oil like WD-40 and let it work for say, 30 min. That should help break them free. If they still won't go, just heat them up good. Good luck.

    EDIT: Didn't look at date you posted so I assume you did it already. How did it go?

    Run the wings out all the way but don't let them cup in. You should be able to see all the bolt heads. Also, leave the wing edges only finger tight until the plow is sitting on the ground ... then tighten them down.

    I got lucky and all the bolts came out with just the breaker bar.


    I should have replaced it before the last storm as I just barely started to rub on the actual plow.
