Has anyone had success using anything other than an OEM cutting edge on a snowcaster? Mine is in need of replacement and I wanted to see what other options there might be before spending the money on a new one from Brian.

Any suggestions, opinions and pictures are welcome.
Thanks.

Call me cheap, but I just go get a piece of cold rolled..... , 1/8" thick by about 1.25" t0 1.5" wide by the length of the original cutting edge and weld it over the top of the bad one.

Level the blower with the guides. Most seem to end up wearing crooked. Then with the bad one still on the blower, slide the new chunk of steel on top of the original, almost up to the bend up at the top. Tack it on with the welder so it looks right, remove it to finish welding. The old edge can stay behind the new without issue. When your done, 98% of the people wouldn't even know you did it.

One 5/8ths x 4'x6' horse stall mat from TSC will provide 15 pcs of double sided (reversable) squeegee edge for approx $40.
I figure this will last the rest of my life.
Cut a strip 3" x 54" and sandwich it behind your stock cutting edge with 5/16ths x 2" carriage bolts
The unused portion makes a dandy garage mat while you`re waiting to create next years edge.
Downside is you may need to extend the skid shoes.

If anyone is intersted there is a company (I have to dig out the catalog) that makes plastic cutting edges for commercial street plows and tractors. The order form shows you how to measure the bolt pattern and they drill and send it to you. The price was not to bad 30-40 dollars for a 48", I was thinking of putting one on my scrapper blade so I do not scrape the driveway. TSC also has the bulk rubber sold by the foot. 2-3 dollars I believe for a 1' x 4'
Rubber ones are available from Rubbercal.com, they also make / sell replacement leaf vac houses etc.

:thumbsup: I did this with an old 28" walk behind I had. Simple and cheap.
