Cutting Edge for Cub Snowplow

Postby TheflyingB » Wed May 05, 2021 12:14 pm

I'm looking to put a plastic edge on my snowplow since I'll be plowing in the city this winter.

Has anyone picked one up from these guys? What do you do for a cutting edge?

I use something similar that I purchased from a company called The FallLine Corporation. It is a polyurethane material that is 3/4" thick x 4" Wide. I ordered a blank cutting edge and drilled the holes myself. We don't get a ton of snow in Maryland, but I have been using it for four years now, and it lasts much longer than the old rubber one I previously had.

WOW! I didn't expect the math to exceed the cost of another plow!
($2.95 * 54") + ($3.90 * 5 holes) = $178.8

I can replace my rubber edge 3 times for that! I bought the 1" thick, 6" wide, 5' long (02-W121-SNOW-1000-05)

Thinner and narrower are available at a cheaper price. To minimize the rubber edge wear, I added a pair of shoes from Barnyard.

It not the cost of the plow it is the cost of the driveway you are protecting.

Check with Good Works Tractor in Kalamazoo, MI. They sell blanks that you'll have to cut to length and drill. I have no idea how their prices compare.

Guess I had better look at replacing my tire chains - to not scratch up the pavement.

I run chains on a 140 and cub on a blacktop driveway but I do think the blade does more damage. No plastic edge on either

The yellow part, on the blade, is a urethane cutting edge from fallline.com, part #5000-300-422, Snowplow Blade Blank 60” X 4” X .75”, currently $72. I got this for two reasons: 1) it does not damage the lawn nearly as much as a steel cutting edge and 2) it makes no noise on a concrete driveway, something folks appreciate early in the morning. I have used it two full seasons and it is wearing better than a steel one, far beyond my expectations.


This is from a post two years ago and I've used it four full seasons now and it is wearing just fine, probably outlast my desire to keep using the Cub to plow snow. :) :)


It has now been six full seasons and it continues to hold up well. The price has gone up, I'm sure.

Look up "UHMW" Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. It has very good wear properties. I have used it to have bearings made of it for specialty bearing applications. It is used in replacement joints. The knee comes to mind. It is expensive, but it last. Having said that , I think it is a bit of over kill for a snow blade wear surface. Although it should last a long long time. Its the cost benefit ratio. Just an opinion.

Some folks buy a stall mat at their favorite farm & fleet type place and make a cutting edge from a strip of it. At low temperatures it is firm enough to do the job.
