Default Bucket cutting edge welding

I've got a 80" bolt on cutting edge for a skidsteer bucket that broke in half lengthwise. One edge is new the other has lots of life left. I was thinking of trying to weld it back together. Any thoughts from people smarter than me on this? Planning on using wire feed.

1. how did it break ?
2. will the weld are be supported ?

i would suggest preheat, and some fancy rod (like "super missle weld")

Most cutting edges are 1060 steel. Light preheat to start helps with weld appearance. Clamping with some heavy angle or tube steel will reduce warping.
