welding old plow cutting edge to new cutting edge

Discussion in 'Boss Plows Discussion' started by Pa Teeny, Feb 12, 2014.

  1. I have thought about adding old cutting edge to the lower half of a new cutting edge by welding the edges and holes in edge by offsetting the blade as to not weld on bolts......cutting the curb guard off.

    I wanted to see if anyone else has done ....it they say its hardened and lallalala all that other crap...it will weaken the blade......I doubt it will make it so week as to last half as long as a 2X thick blade on the lower half.

    Thoughts...I should have done it last year...as blades last a yr or so for me 9' 2" Boss......

    Whenever we send our plows to the welding shop they will weld another piece of metal to our wore out cutting edge. They seam to use a more harder steal and will last up to two seasons. They just weld it to the front of our existing edge, but with an additional couple of inches hanging down.

    Yes it can weaken the edge but if done right pre heat the edges and use harden rods weld at high setting

    I make my own I can get 2 season out them before I was lucky to get one season

    I double all mine slows the wear down

    You see in the pic My edges are 5/8x 8'' for my 9.2 V plow at the ends they are double
