    I posted a thread a couple weeks ago about having a lot of trouble getting into hard ground/clay. Thought I'd post my results.

    Took the blade to a local welding shop. They built up the digging end and put a sharp point on it. Also hard surfaced the point and a foot up the blade. What a difference in the hard stuff. Our initial test was in some real hard stuff and now it pulls through it like it has been gone through before.

    Best $120 I have spent lately. Too bad I am such a dumb ass not to have done it earlier. :rolleyes:

    Hope this info will help someone not put up with dull blades.
