    Rubber cutting edge for the 54 Plow

    Folks,

    We're making some new rubber cutting edges for the 54 Plow. They are double sided for twice the use and made of the same material used on full size highway plows. They will come with the needed longer hardware to sandwich it between your metal cutting edge and the plow blade.

    If you have seal coated asphalt this "squeegee" is a sweet addition. It's perfectly quiet, doesn't leave a single scratch on the blacktop, and leaves a pristine surface (depending on several factors). The kits are expected to go for around $45. Anyone interested, shoot me an email or call since they aren't yet on the website.

    Note: The hardware will be very similar to the OEM hardware, though longer, not like the ones in the photo.

    Just a little experience report. I did put a similar edge onto my rear blade, and fastened it in the same manner as described here. I found out that the rubber needs some extra support/stiffening in the back, because the plow/blade metal is not far enough down to prevent the rubber from bending slightly.
    I made an extension to my blade to get a seven food wide blade, and this extension has a longer back. The rubber at the normal blade side is unsuported in the back for about three inches, and at the extension it is unsupported by about one inch. The three inch free side is clearly bend to the back. Once the weather allows it, i'll make some pictures to show this (it is 8 below currently and I will not set up for a photo shoot!).

    I feel it would be a good idea to add a longer back support to this kit.

    Try a stiffer material.

    I have a one inch thick, commercially made edge (I think they use belt material for this), I don't believe there is stiffer material. I will take a few picture during one of the next few days (it is supposed to warm up really well around here, all the way up to 17 degrees!


    I just wanted to share my experience. You are currently still in the design phase, and can make modifications. I know that you do not want to make half a*** jobs!

    I used a 1"thick by 6" high. Cutting edge to replace the wimpy original design, I added two more trip springs and also added a 8"
    Top extension to the plow. I do not use skids. I have rarely had problems with hard paved surfaces.

    Hi All,

    The Snow Squeegee, Plow Adapters, and the Diverter Valve Kits are now up on the web although the page is not yet tied in with the rest of the site. The Diverters are listed as being in stock but might be a few days away from shipping. And speaking of shipping, some of the shipping options during checkout may not be optimized. If there are any better methods available than what show up, any orders will be updated and refunded any savings, as usual. And also as usual, if the website undercharges the actual shipping cost, it's generally our problem, not yours.

    Take a look! You guys will be the first to see it.

    Please feel free to offer any criticism/feedback on the web page. There's quite a lot of information to digest there. Believe me, I know!

    Anyone looking to retro fit their JD garden/lawn tractor 48" blade with the squeegee will find the bolt spacings the same as the 54". As with the "official" and not reversable JD rubber all that is required is the shortening of both ends for a 48".

    I have a JD squeegee on my '04 GX 48" and it's wishing it could be reversed for further wear...

    Pricing and reversability considered, the Artillian part wins hands down over JD's. Wish I'da known around last April...
