    Me and my buddy have been making back blades for our plows for years and we were thinking of selling them and i wanted to know if you guys thought there may be a market for them? We just came up with a design for the new Western Pro Plus that simply bolts on and requires no welding our cutting of the plow and it works GREAT ! We also have made ones that hinge but they do require welding, so selling those i think may be harder. Im sure if there was a demand we could come up with a bolt on design for other makes of plows. Please any imput would be apprecaited

    Thanks
    Bob

    I don't see how the plow pivots from one to the other?

    Mines on a hinge so when you push forward the blade drops down onto the factory cutting edge, but when you reverse it pops up onto the backblade.

    Bob, Your best bet is to get in with Cyncon, Thru-way, anyone that installs plows. Offer them a cut of the action in return for customers.

    I had mine installed ($270ish) by someone doing sub work for Thru-way, and Cyncon just gives you the name of someone.
