    I'm looking to improve the life of my cutting edges on my plow. Has anyone used a carbide insert blade? Where can I buy some and are they worth the money.

    thanks for your help

    Never herd of them but with my experience with snowmobile carbides I would think they will be very expensive and brittle would probably crack or shatter if you hit a manhole cover, curb, etc...
    My 2 cents.

    What I noticed the NYS DOT doing is just bolting an extra piece of cutting edge in a couple spots on the blade (like in the middle and the side, where they get the most wear from how the lanes are worn).

    That's what I was going to do. Just weld an extra piece of 1/2 " plate or old edge on the ends. It would act as a half azzed curb guard also...

    I bet it's what left of the carbide cutting edge.
