    2 edges in 2 seasons!! What the hell? Anyway, I'd scrap em for some cash or make a hinged backdrag edge.

    Send them my way. I need one for making a pull back blade on the skid loader pusher. You pay shipping and I will take them off your hands. haha Then you can say your company has gone green and recycle.

    If you can't make a back drag blade follow my motto: If you don't know what to do with it, Shoot it :gunsfiring: Everything always has a purpose as a target :D

    Throw them in the front yard and someone will take them in 5 minutes.

    Are your edges wearing evenly or just the ends?

    Make a hinged back drag edge out of mild snow then weld the cutting edge steel to it so you know it will last. Thats what I did over 4 years ago. If you are going to weld hardened steel to mild preheating will help a lot to keep the welds from pulling out of the hardened metal.

    Now that I think of it you could make a backdrag and come up with a bracket that bolts to the old cutting edge bolt holes.

    I used an old edge to go across the rafters in the garage and I hung a chainhoist from it....

    I just throw mine in the salvage steel pile. If I need it, I use it, if I don't, It goes to the scrapyard.
