Trip Edge Repair Prevention 101

A trip edge is a mechanism that allows the plow to “trip” or tip when it encounters a road obstruction, so it can glide over without getting damaged.

Trip edge wear can occur when a snowplow is driven too fast over areas of the road with obstructions (like potholes or manhole covers). The problem usually presents itself in the form of broken blades, moldboard damage or heavy impact to the front of the plow.

Unfortunately, trip edge repair is often a necessary evil for anyone who operates a snowplow. In this post, we’ll explore prevention-based solutions to this problem.

The Weight is Over

During the 2015/2016 season we shipped over 4,000 system crates to customers across the United States. With each crate weighing an average of 500 pounds; we manufactured, packaged, and delivered about 2,000,000 pounds of cutting edges last season. That's equivalent to 2,000 killer whales... whoa.
