Stopped by the CNH dealer today to pick up a hydralic steering cylinder kit for my Ford 550 Backhoe / loader and asked about a replacement cutting edge for the loader bucket. They quoted about $230 for a 7 foot replacement cutting edge. This seemed like a lot of $$$. What's the going price for a blade? Any ideas on the best place to get one? I'm in middle Georgia.
Thanks, GA Jim

They aren't cheap. You could check with other places that sell bucket teeth and cutting edges. They might be a little cheaper? Dave

A few years back i had a new bolt on cutting edge installed on my wheel loader. They cut the bottom of the bucket out where the edge should be about 12" deep and welded in a new piece of that hardened steel for cutting edges, then drilled holes for the bolt on cutting edge. I'm only 30 but i'll probably be dead and buried before i wear that out. That cost me $1500.00 for the whole thing.

$230.00 actually sounds reasonable for a dealer price.

I bought a 5 ft, piece of cutting edge from the welding shop in town for my skid loader bucket. Paid $117. It is 6 inches wide and 3/4 thick. I counter sink plow bolts and bolt it under the factory edge. Makes for easy replacement, no welding. Cutting edge comes in various sizes and can be cut to the length needed. Very spendy steel to buy.

I have a 550 TLB also and I replaced my cutting edge with a box blade cutting edge from Agri-supply in Statesboro GA for about $90. They have a website www.agrisupply.com. I had to cut a couple of holes but it works fine. For a lot less money.

I do the same as Scott- buy it from the local welder. I weld mine in, and on each end, make the upright long enough to extend above the slant of the bucket. Very handy for catching a bale feeder, etc., with the edge of the bucket for moving. Here they are available in 4-5-6 inch widths, various thickness. I like the 3/4 inch, then drill a hole in the center for spotting wagons, etc. with the skidloader. Just made a 5 foot long "hitchpin" that I use from the seat when moving wagons- don"t have to get out. 3/4 inch pin welded on the 45 degree cut end of pipe, T handle on the other end. Saves a lot of trips. Store it on the boom arm. No use in antagonizing the new hip!
