Replacing Wear Strips

Our aluminum and heavy-duty aluminum snow shovels and pushers have replaceable high-carbon steel wear strips. Be sure to replace the wear strip before it has worn into or damaged the aluminum blade.

Replacement kits contain one 18", 24" or 30" wear strip and rivets. They are available from dealers or may be ordered from our online store.


  1. Using a 3/16" bit, drill out old rivets from the back side of the shovel.
  2. Lay the shovel face down on a hard surface such as an anvil or solid concrete.
  3. Place the new wear strip along the BACK of the blade. Working with one rivet at a time, push rivets from the FRONT through holes in blade then wear strip.
  4. Strike the back of each rivet with a hammer until flattened tightly against the back of the new wear strip. (Soft smash-down rivets are provided so no special tool is needed.)
