If you are around heavy machinery often, you understand there are plenty of intelligent people around you, but every once in awhile you find yourself a dull blade. Sometimes even the intelligent ones make themselves look like a dull blade. So, what do we qualify as a dull blade?
1. not the brightest of the bunch
2. someone who, for a split second, forgets everything they know about operating heavy equipment
3. that dude who doesn't give two sh*%$ and rushes through the job throwing caution to the wind
This week we have two candidates for our dull blade of the week. We'll let you decide who deserves the award more.
We don't know whether this dude should be praised for this idea or slapped upside the head. He must have a lot of faith in his operator. The operator could've made a million and one mistakes and caused severe harm to this guy, but luckily all went according to plan. Unless Mr. Boss Man caught wind of this.
Now we can't point out exactly who's to blame here; this may be a group nomination. We can tell you who the sharpest of the bunch is though. Check out the bird on the rooftop. He saw sh&% going down and he was out! These people probably had their fingers crossed this would work, and well, it obviously didn't.
Those are our two contenders for this week's Dull Blade of the Week. Which fail made you cringe the most? Which one would your boss absolutely roast you for? Let us know in the comments below if you think these are both deserving, or if these are nothing compared to what you've seen out on the job!

Robust demand is challenging global supply as the world recovers from COVID-19. Our suppliers announced price increases, primarily due to rising scrap steel prices and skyrocketing ocean freight rates. We have also been warned of supply constraints due to current demand. We are doing our best to secure products and ensure continuous supply.
Equipment Blades can take OEM part numbers and have them manufactured in thicker and wider profiles to add more material to your bucket edges or grader blades. By adding more material you can spend less time changing out edges. Going thicker and wider works great in concrete scraping applications like snow removal or farming.
Equipment Blades has custom carbide options to extend the wear life of your cutting edges.
