Evaluation of Wear Resistance of Snow Plow Blade Cutting Edges Using the Scratch Test Method
The scratch test method was used to evaluate the wear resistance of snow plow blade cutting edges. A testing apparatus peculiar to the in situ scratch test of cutting edges was developed. Experimental results indicated that the scratch hardness correlated better to the wear resistance of cutting edges than did the indentation hardness.
