We have a Meyer HMP 10' Poly plow, man does this thing wear edges fast. It is mounted to a '91 4700 International. I'm looking for a heavier duty cutting edge. Do the municipal plows use different types of cutting edges?

Bob :D :D

How thick is the edge on that plow. Maybe a 1/2". Switch to either a 3/4" thick edge, double the 1/2" edges.
Also look into www.blackcatblades.com
If you are looking for a substitute to steel I sell MPT urethane edges, and a few other here sell different brands of urethane.
With a 2" thick type 2 edge from us, I beieve we can much onger wear life than the stock stel edges.

5/8" or 3/4" muni grade carbide edges will last.You must be using mild steel.A good carbide edge will last many,many times longer.

Back when we ran stel edges, I had a friend who plowed for the local town,and they chnged edges every storm. He wuld give me his takes offs, usually they would be at least 5-7" wide. They were free, and lasted me at least 3-5 events. I was running a trip edge fisher at the time, and I was oly able to wear the edge to about 4.5 " till it needed changing.

Does anyone know any of the different specs used for the steel edges ?

I've seen some that only last a short time,yet the others that last many years.

My 5/8" edges on some of my blades are 4-5 years old,and still look like new.They have worn to the typical smilie,but would still be good for many years.

I don't know the exact specs,but we get them from the local Champion road grader place.They aren't much more expensive than most other edges.

Install carbides against the moldboard itself, infront of the carbide install a 5/8" think high carbon steel edge. Should last alot longer that what you are getting now.
