rod330, these type of accidents never have a happy ending. I used to work for a coal co., 36 yrs ago when the cutting edges had to be changed we used timbers to block the push arms up so we could work changing the cutting edges, we used a torch to burn the nuts off, and then flip the edges or replace them, no air tools back then, everything was done by hand. that was in the late 70's, go ahead to the 2005 when I got back in the coal fields and their was air tools, so when it was time to change cutting edges I built a mound of dirt, tracked in on both sides for the push arms to rest on, a lot safer then the timbers that we used back then, no way for the blade to fall on you now. just rougher getting in and out of cab since dozer was looking at the moon. accidents are never a happy thing. big jim
