Like the title says,

 

I need a single 48" hardened cutting edge, cheap and easy to get. Any easy multiple, ( 24" 16" 6" etc. ) will work too, if the price is right.

 

Biggest issue is size. I don't need D9 sized cutting edges. I'm looking for 1" to 1-1/4"  edges that are bolt on.

 

Its for my dozer project.

 

Price is an issue.

See if a steel supply will shear a piece of T-1 or AR plate for you. Use lots of cutting oil when drilling it!!

I'm not sure where to get them, I lucked out and found some at a auction. I bought 10 of them and now I'm about out. I wish I would of gotten more, there was a whole pallet of them. But the money issue came up again! :(

 

I made a tooth bar for my Kubota out of a cutting edge, it worked out great!

Would a snow plow cutting edge work? the kind that big trucks use.Maybe check out the local DPW and see if they got any worn out take offs.

In a pinch many years ago, I made a cutting edge from an old leaf spring. I heated and straightned it. I then welded it to the bucket edge and it held for the rest of the life of the bucket. Good Luck, Rick
