Much of the benefit of an underbody scraper lies in the ability to apply high levels of pressure to break up
compacted ice and snow. However, this also leads to increased wear on the underbody’s cutting edges
and frequent replacement. This process is time and labor intensive and can often lead to a wide variety of
injuries. Accordingly, the Quick Edge Rapid Underbody Cutting Edge Changing System was designed to
simplify this difficult process and remove some of the risk involved. This report outlines the steps taken
in creating the final working design and prototype.
