    I know this topic has been mentioned many times over, but I could've find what I was looking for in the search feature...
    I am looking for info on the "steel pipe over the trip edge" trick. I have had enough of tearing up my driveway, time for a change. Has anyone done this? I am wondering how you attach the pipe to the plow so it doesn't fall off. Any and all tips/tricks would be appreciated. Thanks guys...

    Thank you Quigley. I did find some listed under "sod savers". I like how they attached the edge to the Boss. Unfortunately, I have a fisher with a lower trip edge, so that won't work. I'm thinking of making some sort of attachment to where the shoes attach. Maybe a chain wrapped thru the hole and attached to the back of the moldboard?

    Attach it to a few of your cutting edge bolts.

    Yup You need to make sure it doesn't destroy anything when the blade trips. Maybe a custom made pins where the trip edge attach's.

    If that's all you do Make a cutting edge out of mild steel and weld the pipe on the edge
