Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

Whats the best place to get a new wear bar for the 52" Glacier 2 Plow I was thinking of replacing it with a UHMW plastic Wear Bar??? I didn't see a wear bar replacement on the pure polaris website.

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

If you're talking about the cutting edge on the bottom of the blade, got to your local metal supplier and get some QT100 flat bar and drill it, it's really tough chit!

Life's short drive it like u stole it!!!

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

I've seen UHMW and rubber scrapers for full size truck plows but couldn't find any for small blades. Unless someone makes one specific for the type & length of your blade you're going to have to drill it yourself. So you might as well make one from scratch. Cuts just like wood on a tablesaw.

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

That stuff is great, I wish I would have seen your post sooner, I made my own skid out of that stuff and have a bunch left over. Not enough for a second skid but can help out any of the plow guys with it. It's white, the construction stuff and 1/2 thick. I got it for free from a concrete company that was throwing it out.

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

I found if you know someone that has a motor grader. When they change their worn out blades you can cut them to length but 4 inches longer then bolt them on. Have to drill new bolt holes. but you two inches on each side, you can scrape the curbs. Been plowing two years with mine and hardly any wear. Plus the added weight helps a bunch.
You can usually get them from an equipment dealer or construction company, usually for free.

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

Hey all,
Allegheny Off Road has Polyurethane Snow Plow Cutting Edges/ Wear Bars for sale now!
Polyurethane has a longer life span than Steel or UHMW. Our Cutting Edge is 4" High and 1" Thick. Here are some highlights on using Polyurethan vs. UHMW or Steel....
High Flexibility: Will not bend or break with impact damage reduction on road surfaces and trucks, even at -35°
Extended Work-Life: Better wearing properties than UHMW. Proven to outlast rubber by up to 10 times and steel by up to 5 times, lowering maintenance cost, increasing productivity and profits.
Non-Damaging to Surfaces: Unlike steel edges, Allegheny Off Road Cutting Edge will not damage Brick or Cobblestone Streets, Stamped Concrete or Asphalt, Paver Stone Surfaces, Parking Lots, Curbs, Speed Bumps, or Manhole Covers.
Less Equipment Wear: Due to the higher vibration absorption property of polyurethane.
Benefits of Polyurethane Over Rubber Cutting Edges: Polyurethane has memory and bounces back to retain its original shape after impact. In contrast, rubber tends to hold its flexed shape, severely detrimenting plowing efficiency and work life.

Check out the product : https://www.alleghenyoffroad.com/pro...w-cutting-edge

Let me know what you think!

Looks awesome, but that's what I paid for my used plow.

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

They aren't the least expensive thing out there, but the benefits of not using steel and it's excellent wearability will keep your plow good for a lot longer time. When the edges wear down on the steel it immediately starts on the paint and steel of the plow itself. Our price is almost a 1/3 less than what the competitions is. It's more than worth it to me plowing on a gravel driveway and not taking all the gravel up. That gravel isn't cheap nor is the enormous job of picking up all the piles of it after winter so I can mow!

I've been looking for a plow blade wear bar and happened across this thread...
Many people on other forums mention 4 and 6 in and even using a metal edge in front of the poly...
Why 4inches vs 6 and why or why not put a metal blade in front of the poly?

Thanks!!

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar

I put one of these on my Sportsman's plow, and put the stock metal bar on top of it for strength. Haven't used it yet, but this setup was highly recommended by people that use their plows a lot

Re: Glacier 2 Plow Wear Bar



This is how we recommend installing our wear bars. Use the existing old wear bar as a brace for the new one.

Our bars are 5 inches tall by 1 inch thick. The thickness helps tremendously on how much wear the bar receives, so thicker means it has a larger area to "float" on versus a thin edge. This also drops below the edge of the plow so its the only surface making contact with the ground.

This also made to be reversible so when the one side does wear out, you can flip it to the other side.

I'll have to measure it, but it's in the 5"-6" range. Just like the one Tiorum3 posted, this one can be flipped when one side wears. I've been told the poly wear bars are almost a must when plowing concrete so it doesn't scar up the concrete. My driveway is concrete, so I figured I'd give it a try.
