    i've read quite a bit about the addition of a back blade to a plow. they all seem fairly easy to make if you have the equipment, and they look like they work really well. i haven't seen any comments on one particular area of the back blade. when stacking snow, i tend to drive up the bank a little and the plow gets lifted by the bank higher than the lift can naturally get it. this means i can't lift the blade any higher. i need to drag it back a little as im backing out of the bank for it to fall down to the point where its held up by the lift and chains. i would think that the back drag edge would cause a hang up at this point and leave me stranded in the bank. either that or i would have to forfeit the ability to keep snow pushed back as far and as high as i like.

    someone please tell me there is no such issue and they can stack to the moon with their edge!!!

    I have never been hung up back drag edge. And I stack high enough for the snow to come back over the blade AND cover my hood to the windshield. So don't worry about it. Besides it will be a swinging item so when all te way up there it is still hanging straight down. ie not close to the snow.
