    Hey that looks really good. I wanted to ask you where you got the 7.5 foot piece of flat steel for the deflector. I wanna install a deflector, but don't know where to get such a log piece of steel to bolt to the top.

    Try going to your local steel shop and seeing if they'll cut ya a piece. Also the plow looks great. The exdendors are a curb gaurd I take it?

    Nice pictures. Let us know how the extenders hold up.It looks like a good product. By the way, where did you get them?

    Nice. To me the deflector looks like a rubber one. The extenders are a curb gaurd, but also protect the outside edges of the cutting edge from wearing faster than the rest of the edge.

    You will like the results of the Extendors.....we have been running them for three years now. They definately make a difference. We used to go through cutting edges every month or so on our Western 10' HW. We even tried doubling the cutting edges for wear. After we purchased Extendors it was back to a single cutting edge and those. We almost made it through last winter on one edge/set of Extendors.

    Nice job! I noticed less spray/slush on the windshield and windows when "carrying" after putting the snow deflectors on. Nice set-up you've got there.:)

    Thanks..And That is actually three pieces of steel..And i bought them from my local western dealer..They where $6.90 a piece..and they just bolt right on..you can also buy all the hardwear you need there or go to an ace or somewhere else to buy the 12 bolts you need..

    Yes, Its like a curb gaurd..because the old cutting edge was wearing out bad on the corners and it started to eat up the main plow edge...so i bought this to protect it.

    What did you plow that you went through a cutting edge so fast?...My original 3/8 cutting edge lasted 6 years...and i upgrades to make it last longer...And The 3/8 one still had about 1" left on it but the edge's where really bad..

    02DURAMAX: You'll definitley like those extenders! I have 2 seasons on mine and the edge is only worn 1.25". Used to go through 1 a year. Saves a little moneypayup:redbounce

    I think those extenders have carbide wear edges that last a very long time... kind of like hardfacing an excavator bucket for severe use. I want to get a set for my blade.
