    Is there a simple way to tell the year of a snow plow weather it be a boss, western, heniker. Just curious. Been plowing for years, as fast as they change styles of plows just wondering if there was a way to tell there age. Does any manufacture have a web site to visit for that info. Thanks

    check the serial number and call the company. On Westerns the first digits (if I remember) are the manufacture date.

    Hey thanks for the rep[y. Yea there are so many out there. I guess if i was around them more i could probably figure it out. Been out of the loop awhile. Try[ng to design a cutting edge to limit damage to fragile surfaces, sod gravel whatever. I'll figure it out. Thanks

    Use a Poly cutting edge they are easy on the grass. Or use a pipe that is cut and slides over your cutting edge.

    Fisher codes it into the serial number. I don't recall offhand just what the formula is, but I can post it here if you or another reader wants to know more.

    Ditto on the "sod pipe" idea for the blade edge, too. I think there's at least one thread on here about that, if you use "sod pipe" as a search term.
