I saw that also, was gonna get it myself, but by the time I drive to pick it up and bring it back in my gas guzzler it wouldn't have been much of a deal. Better off to locate one locally. 444 still apart so time is on my side.

You've got it all wrong. :???: :???: I'm not trying to talk you into anything. :wink: :wink: I was simply pointing out to the membership that this is a smokin' deal in the hopes that one of them would grab it. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Of course, you would be then free to come back on this forum and moan about how you should have gone for it when you had the chance and now you're kicking your ass for not doing so. :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

mtbiker60, I don't know the exact times I talked to him, but we have agreed on a pick-up time Saturday. Maybe he just wants a back-up in case I turn it down after seeing it. (if it looks like the picture, that ain't happenin')

Picked it up Saturday afternoon. Looks good, but had more wear on edge than I expected, considering the paint wasn't wore off the face of the plate. I have access to AR plate at work if I need to make a new one. Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase. :smile: We also use 5/16" and 3/8" urethane in the equipment at work and am thinking of sandwiching a piece of that under the edge and see how that works to help prevent further wear.

If the edge is worn close anywhere close to where the moldboard steel begins, then change it out now. Look closely all the way across the edge because they often do not wear evenly.

If you use it the way it is, they often wear faster then you think and suddenly you are into the bolts before you know it.
The OEM edges are a nice high-turnover item for the local parts counter. Double the thickness, use longer carriage bolts and Nylock nuts.

Glad to hear that you are happy with the purchase. It looked pretty good in the listing and the price was just too low to ignore.

Amazing! I told this same guy on Feb. 22, at 12:55PM that I wanted the same blade!! Said he wouldn't be home until the weekend, and asked if I could pick it up on Sunday.
MT Biker: There's another post for a blade in Pa. If its $150, its still a good price. Looks complete but the cutting edge appears worn (not a big deal, but bargaining point?). I'll keep an eye out, you are Pa. correct?
