Hey all, I have an SMC loader with a 72" bucket on it that needs the cutting edge replaced. The previous owner put a piece of grader edge on it that is curved. With the rounded side down it's impossible to scrape withe the bucket level to the ground. My question is does anyone know what the typical dimensions are for a cutting edge on a 72" bucket would be? I have a few steel places around that handle flat stock of various sizes. I was thinking maybe 7/16" x 6" ? I don't want to over do it so as to not be able to add a tooth bar. Also how much overhang should there be on the front exposed/ leading edge? By the way this is a weld on edge.
