    Has anybody used a poly cutting edge on a Homesteader? If so, where can one be purchased? I plow exclusively on grave and find the steel edge cuts in all the time. Thanks!

    Thanks for the info. I checked with fisher and they don't make one for the Homesteader, but do have one for the light duty. Maybe I can make the LD one fit my plow. Any ideas? Thanks again!

    It depends on the size of you Homesteader becouse I don't think they made the LD in 7' 4" but I think they did make the LD in 6' 9".

    I use a Homesteader plow on a gravel driveway. The first season of use, I had the same problem of digging into the gravel. I got the poly plow shoes installed and couldn't believe the difference! It keeps the blade up off the gravel (I think it is raised about 1/2 inch to 1 inch, but they are adjustable), so no digging in and, as a bonus, it us much quieter too. It cost me less than $100 installed.
    Good luck,

    Thanks for the advice. Looked up the shoes on the fisher web site and they look like they will help. A lot less expensive than a poly cutting edge. Thank again.

    i also plow gravel lot and shoes works great

    befor shoes i had the trick to just raise the blade a bite for the 2 or 3 frist strom
    then with a good frozen base you can plow like i is ashphalt
