Are the current cutting edges welded or bolted on? Would think you could take the old ones to dealership or two and find some that would fit.

Just be aware that the blades will be really hard steel and the auger itself is likely regular mild steel, hard to weld the two together unless you're pretty handy with a welder.

Either way, good old 6013 just won't work very well.

Best of luck. ....
