    Hello. I am interested in offering pre-packaged plow bolt kits for blade replacements. What do you think?

    I'd like to have complete hardware kits on hand and ready to ship. Users would order the kit(s) (bolts, nuts and washers) based on the blade model. Is there anyone who might know the most popular blades so I can get an idea of what I would need to have ready?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I left out the smaller ones. I narrowed it down a little, but not much. :D

    Most plow edges come with hardened steel bolts. Why would I buy just the bolts? You don't change edges often enough to keep bolts on hand.

    I have extra bolts on hand, spares incase one snaps off, or something. not that I've had to change them, but there are always reason for things.

    not to hyjack the thread but....we started using road grader cutting edges and they sell us the bolts too. the county barn we get them from is only 1/4 mile away.. i would recommend these edges to anyone. you will have to drill holes on your plow for some models but it's worth it. they only cost $50 per 7' and will last twice as long.

    i'm not trying to dogg your idea but i wouldn't invest too much $$ in this biz... this would offer no advantage to anyone. you would have to sell the cutting edges too and probably also sell/carry several thousand other products to get people to buy the bolts from your company. hope this helps.
