    What kind of blade is it? Pull, chute, combo, width, depth, pin diameter and placement?

    might need alittle help here. it's a pull blade. i think 1/4" thick by 12" i think. when measuring depth, do i only measure what goes in the ground? i know i need a beefier blade than the one i have now.

    You can't go beyond the limits of your machinery, so far as replacement blades go. Is there a problem with blades from the plow maker?

    i just heard or read that some aftermarket blades might be of better design and maybe alittle stronger.

    Well, a half-inch blade will be stronger than a quarter-inch blade, but there are limits to what you can use. I'm thinking a Dingo is going to be under-powered in comparison to a dedicated plow, and you can't get longer blades to work.

    yes i agree, i don't want a longer blade. maybe just alittle thicker.

    Possibly the same problem. Consider getting a shorter blade, even if you have to swing-joint the heads, instead of them sitting atop saddle tees.
