    How do you like you're back drag blade(plow mount, not receiver mount) and do you prefer a fixed mount or one that hinges behind the main edge? I have some loading docks with over-hanging roof lines that drop heavy, wet snow that packs hard and fast. I run a Boss 8FT. Thanks.

    I just got a fixed mount for this season. I am not sure, but I would think the fixed mount is going to make the cutting edges last longer, since I will have two surfaces touching all the time.

    Hello all
    I have a fair bit of back dragging to do this year, but not enough to warrant a "Plow Partner". Does anyone know where I can find someone to fabricate a swing type back drag edge for an older steel Arctic plow, In the Toronto Ontario area? I would prefer someone with a little experience working on plows.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the link & great pics.
    Anybody know someone who does this type of work in Toronto? I just flipped the blade on my Arctic, but there was a lot of crud built up under the cutting edge, the steel moldboard has seen better days. I'm looking for something that will last maybe 5 years ...not 50, but that sure does look like some bad-ass fabrication work. See if he know anyone up here.LOL

    I have a 8' western pro and just put the western backdrag edge on. It works great! Backdragging snow away from garage doors have been so much easier. Ive plowed enough with it allready that the 2 edges are even level on the ground now. I still get a great forward push when im clearing. No problems here... i like it. The kit was about $130 for edge and new hardware.
