Snow Plow Cutting Edges for Improved Plowing Performance, Reduced Blade Wear, and Reduced Surface Impacts

This report aims to provide Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) Maintenance and local agency winter maintenance units with a concise research synthesis on snow plow cutting edge research. This research synthesis provides a single source which maintenance managers may use in decision making in regard to purchase and use of snow plow cutting edges. Most of the snow plow cutting edge research is focused on plow performance and blade wear. Some of the research also discusses the adverse impact of edges on surfaces and raised objects (manhole covers, expansion joints, etc). This synthesis examines both formally documented research and research that did not include a formal report. The research examined falls into the following categories: Recently Completed Research, Research In Progress, Past Research, Vendor Product Information, Related Research, and Patents Pending.
