    are you serious? a pipe over the cutting edge. makes plowing unpaved areas much nicer untill it freezes and gets a hard base. i've used them for years on straight and v's. the new boss cutting edge with the curb guard's and they way they are now, you dont need the center snow catcher. just wondering if anyone has fabed a pipe for there's yet.

    it really helps. cuts the damage to gravel drives and lawns to almost none. also the plow dont catch and trip.

    A smoking pipe?
  7. All I do is gravel driveways, some with rocks the size of softballs in them.. I'm just cutting the pipes for my MVP+ But it has straight edges. I think you'd just have to cut it just before the bend.

    The 4pc MVP+ blade is a pain because you have 4 thicknesses to deal with because if the overlap.

    I use the outter cutting edge bolts to hold it on. Takes 3 minutes to put on or take off a straight blade.

    i need to see a pic of this please
  13. Na, Just a gravel driveway thing. All I do is gravel mostly and without a pipe edge the plow would be a bulldozer until the ground freezes. And it's not fun backdragging a 1500ft long driveway.
    I'll take pics of mine as I'm making a pair and post them. hope to get at it tomorrow.

    Here are some pic of the pipe there is a gap in the middle getting some belting to fill it in but when its in scoop mode the pipes come together close the gap. See what you think
