Moldboard edge wear

    I purchased a used LT760 snow plow which has the first version power hitch with one switch.
    The original owner wore the cutting edge right down to the moldboard edge and looks like some of the moldboard is worn away.
    Can anyone tell me how much steel should be behind the replaceable cutting edge. I need to know how much to weld back in there?

    That's how you are suppose to wear a trip edge. Now you can get full wear out of your new cutting edge.

    Blizzards are full trip.
    As was said, new edge and run with it.
    Where's the pump cover?

    This is What I Did ….. It's on my SS 8611 PP …. the cutting edge was only a couple millimetres from being ground into the main box on the bottom …. the edge guards (OEM) were not very adequate, so I re-used the old and added new, you can see I added the old corners over on top of the new 3/4" Hardox 550 pieces and I added over top of the old main long cutting edges with Hardox 500 ….. Better than New Now …. have had 3 good marathon events already and re-measured what I added ….. Doesn't hardly show any wear off of the edges … tymusic … :drinkup:
