    if you do a google search for back drag blades you will find a place in michigan that makes them, they bolt onto the front of the plow where the cutting edge bolts on,

    Check out youtube and search for back drag plow. There is a demonstration for one called a "back Draggin" It looks pretty good. I am thinking about getting one. They are a complete kit for $349. I think the company who makes them is called cpi divisions

    I would imagine probably 12 gauge... You think that would work ok?

    gtmustang00 the cutting edge is too hard of steel and you can't weld to it and I've been told that by two steel places.The only way you could use a cutting edge is to bolt it onto a piece of steel.Where if you get a piece of steel and just weld it you will never have to worry about the bolts comming loose.Unless you have an old cutting edge laying around a piece of 1/2 or 5/8 steel cut to length is going to cost you almost as much as a new cutting edge,and yes that was one of my first ideas

    Do you use flat bar? The quote i got was for 1/2" by 6 flat bar. For the right price i would get one.
