    Hey guys lets see some pics of your back blades. I am looking into putting on my truck next winter and I would like to see what you guys are running and how they mount and what not.

    I installed a Drift Buster (They are/were manifactured locally) this fall. I got it from another member on here. Still needs some tweeking. I haven't mastered it yet either. I also have an arctic for the other truck. Doesnt seem as heavy duty.

    Being a non-plower...what does the back blade do for you? Do you have both down (like I saw in that one video posted everywhere on this site) and it makes for a cleaner pass?

    Chadly- They are nice for areas you would normally have to back drag with a front mounted plow. Areas such as, in front of garage doors, loading docks etc. They save a lot of time especially when doing a lot of residential accounts.

    How does the pull plow hydraulics work? I see the lift cylinder on the plow, and the lines running through the bed. Is there a pump or something somewhere else?

    My pump is in a topcon survey case (laser level case) in yellow,located in the bed.I'll get a pic of the case open.I paid $300 for the plow and pump,but it was in need of sandblasting and paint.I have about a $1000 into it.

    Great pics guys keep em coming. I am looking into a 8 footer that opens up to 12 feet. All hydrolically. It is going to be my summer project. I know I want a 4 link and dual lift cylinders. I found a cheap used one in muskegun mi for 350. it is just the plow, no pump or linkage. So I figure I can go from there. I am not buying it until spring.

    I know what you mean by wanting an 8 footer to go to 12 with a flick of switch.That set-up would have worked great for me years ago.Thats what makes every truck on this site very unique to their own specs to complete their run in a timely manner.My truck for instance has to be as narrow as possible for the work i do.

    Yep very true, nobodys trucks are going to be the same, as nobodys route is the same. Anybody else have any pics of theres?. Does anybody have a good link to any back blades on yahoo or google? I tried to search on there, but all they bring up are the back drag edges for the front plows

    Thanks but no thanks on the superplow. I need something where I can get some downpressure on it. Know what I mean, doesn't look like you can do that with that plow. I am not bashing them, but it just isn't want I am looking for. Nobody has pics of there back blades. I know people have got them, I guess people just are selfish and don't want to share pics. (just kidding)

    Ryan, I just got an 8' Ebling mounted last week. I'll try to get some pictures, but I'm sure you're familier with them, since they're in your back yard. I love it and after one snow event I can't wait for the next snow! As much as I love plowing, this took it to the next level. Already making plans for next summer to get some hyd. wings added.

    Here is my Daniel's 7 years old second truck. The hydraulic pump is next to the turbo under the hood and I mounted a rocker switch on the side of the front plow controller for up/down.[/ATTACH]
