    Yesterday went to western dealer to pick up a Edge for my 11' Coats plow that's on my tractor. I look it up was 6 years ago was when I bought the one that is on it now. I paid $298.00 6 yrs ago

    My Coats plow takes 3/4'' x 8'' x 11' out the door $387.00 that is cheap I ask what it cost for a 9.6 V plow and he said $450 I told him that's just wrong.
    There was another guy in there buying a 9.6 V plow edge and he was telling me he wish he could find one cheaper. He said he was only getting one season out them.
    I told him a tip is to double up on the ends will slow down the wear.

    I think that's about what I pay on my blizzards.

    Edges on my Boss 9.2 V are $200 per side. Sucks the V plows and expandable type plows use such costly edges.

    I order all my edges from angelos supply. My uni v was 125.00 for both sides and the rubber and brackets about a month ago.

    My first OEM didn't last one year either
    That's reason I make my Western V plow edges Pro + plows My last one lasted 2 winters
    Make my Boss V plow edges. Even made one for my new plow on my Skid

    Even make the wing replacement this year I use a free Grader tire for the replacement for the wings. So far its holding well

    I can make them for half the price as a OEM edges

    I use 5/8'' x 8'' stock and double it up on the ends
