    Well here is the back drag blade my dad and I built for my plow. The blade is a piece of 3/8 x 4" flat bar. Along the back side I welding a piece of 1/8 x 2 x 2 angle iron for reinforcement. To attach the back drag blade to the plow we used the trip edge mounts. We made the blade a few inches narrower than the plow on both sides. We did this so that when the plow is fully angled, the back drag blade is not sticking out beyond the edge of the plow. It seems to work pretty good so far!

    The original 3/4" pins that mount the trip edge wern't long enough, so we made a couple of new ones.

    When not in use I can fold it up out of the way. The trip edge can be fully tripped back and will not interfere with the back drag blade.
