Flex Steel Cutting Edge Assembly
The AdvantEdge is the new flex steel cutting edge assembly for plows and pushers of all sizes. Harness this new floating sectional cutting edge featuring universal mounting capability to most any snowplow or snow pusher out there. Upgrade your old plows and pushers with the latest technology in flex steel cutting edges, without the need to invest in a whole new plow!
Sectional Steel Cutting Edge Technology
Left Behind Snow | All Snow Removal Contractors Battle It. All Pedestrians Experience It. All Operators Get Frustrated With It.
Clearing snow efficiently from uneven surfaces is hard work; almost impossible when you are dealing with tight time constraints. Protrusions, drainage ditches, crowns, peaks, and valleys all leave snow behind with standard plows. Soft rubber and plastic edges wear too quickly and cannot scrape like steel edges. There are other snow plows designed with ‘floating sections’ with the claim to fame that they clean better, and reduce salt usage. However not a single one of these plow products hit 100% on all service, durability, price, and availability reviews. Because of the proprietary designs that make them specialized to each plow manufacturer, parts can be scarce, expensive, or you experience lack of dealer support. They can also be overpriced, and hard to get – waiting is not what your customers do, right?
KAGE AdvantEdge Universal Sectional Cutting Edge
The KAGE AdvantEdge™ is the new type of sectional cutting edge that will revolutionize snowplow operations everywhere. Using a simple and universal design, contractors and municipalities can take advantage of a Hardox® steel cutting edge that contours automatically to uneven surfaces. This simple assembly bolts onto any moldboard or trip-edge plow and instantly gives your old plows a revolutionary sectional edge made up of 18″ and 24″ sections.
- The AdvantEdge will make your job easier; replacing the more expensive, dedicated sectional snowplow devices out there. Scrape in just one pass with the KAGE flex steel sectional cutting edge!
- Use the plow and pusher brands you already know and trust
- Improve the cleaning performance with the KAGE AdvantEdge!
Automatically Navigates Peaks And Depressions
No pavement is perfectly flat, so unless your cutting edge is flexible, you’re leaving snow behind. The independent cutting edge sections of the AdvantEdge™ help the blade to contour to the shape of any surface. The more snow you can remove during your plowing operations, the less salt and sand usage you’ll have.
Each 18″ or 24″ cutting edge section is milled from the proprietary Hardox of wear-plate, common to the mining industry for abrasion resistance and strength. Compared to carbide cutting edges, Hardox is not as brittle, and does not require any additional backing plates.
- Better than AR, the 5/8” thick AdvantEdge blades will outlast AR 2:1, and your standard 1084 High Carbon edges 4:1.
Steel Cutting Edges Flex In Sections
The very nature of the AdvantEdge reduces premature wear of your cutting edges because of the even pressure across the entire edge. The edge is instantly contouring to every surface, and adjusting so that the plow is not grinding away on peaks, and wearing the center or edges faster than the rest.
- Independent and consistent pressure across the cutting edge creates consistent wear across the blade.
- Reduces premature replacement due to crowning and gutter wear.
Pressure Adjustable Encapsulated Design
This patented design give yous the flexibility to adjust the pressure on each section, so that whatever the weight of the plow, you can obtain just the right amount of preload. Each section of the AdvantEdge is equipped with multiple 120 lb/inch die springs. You will use a simple calculation to determine just the right quantity of springs for your particular plow weight and width. AdvantEdge uses a closed face design reducing the impact that salt, sand, and ice can have. Each section is completely covered by the cutting edge, which is easily replaced by removing two bolts. If you ever need internal access to replace or add springs, simply remove the cutting edge.
American Made Patented Design
Not only is KAGE Innovation innovating the snow removal industry, but we are manufacturing those innovations at a high quality and process standard that you would expect from an American Made manufacturing company. All of the sliding components of the AdvantEdge are milled out of 1045 steel and case hardened for abrasion, corrosion, and lubricity. The final assembly is then completely assembled and shipped, ready to install on your new or existing plow! All mounting hardware necessary for installation is included.
Reduces Damage To Plowed Surfaces
Large pit on asphalting highway. Your operators try to clean the lots their best – and sometimes in an effort to clean “down to blacktop” they will just push harder. This operator enthusiasm doesn’t do much for removing the snow, but the asphalt, concrete, and other embeds feel the extra pressure of that steel as it grinds everything down. The AdvantEdge reduces the damage to curbs, asphalt/concrete transitions all while scraping better! It’s truly a win/win for you and your customers.
There is only one model, however each segment has several different bolt pattern options for its rigid backing plate, which bolts to the plow. This backing plate is what enables the AdvantEdge assembly to universally mount to virtually any plow. The backing plate also determines the height at which the assembly is mounted to the plow. Each kit is comprised of various segment lengths to achieve the proper combined length. Choose from 2, 3, 4, and 5 foot segments, or order as one complete kit. Ordering is easy, and any standard length of plow, trip edge and trip moldboard type can be accommodated.
Order By Complete Kit
You can order the AdvantEdge by the fully assembed kit. A kit will come with all of the pre-assembled segments necessary for your particular plow. Simply determine the amount of “stick up” that your factory – equipped plow has, and the overall length of your blade. Once you have that information, you are ready to order!
- It is necessary to have standard highway punch, or 12″ O.C. bolt spacing.
- The stick up dimension determines which backing plate we will send you. The stick up dimension is to make sure that you have enough flat mounting surface above the bolt holes. The two options are 3 1/2″ and 1 1/2″.
- If your plow has a split trip edge, you should order your new AdvantEdge by segment rather than a complete Kit.
Order By Segment
You can order your new AdvantEdge by adding individual segments together to achieve your desired length. Each segment comes completely assembled and ready to install on your plow or pusher. Typically order this way when your plow has a split trip edge. Determine the “stick up” clearance your plow has, and the overall length of each trip edge. With that information you’re ready to order!
- It is necessary to have standard highway punch, or 12″ O.C. bolt spacing.
- The stick up dimension determines which backing plate we will send you. The stick up dimension is to make sure that you have enough flat mounting surface above the bolt holes. The two options are 3_1/2″ and 1_1/2″.
- Choose between 2′, 3′, 4′, and 5′ segments to obtain the desired overall length.
Front And Wing Blade Flex Edge System
Until now, sectional plows and cutting edges have only been available on a few brands of plows. The AdvantEdge makes it possible to harness sectional cutting edge technology on almost any plow or pusher available on the market today!
