    dealer must not need the business!

    I have sent BackDrag 3 e-mails and tried their phone number numerous times but no answer on either ways of contact! Must not need the business or they are too busy to reply.Seems like a neat idea but not sure how long the 1/4" piece of steel for the BOSS plows will hold up if you drag it into something.The other backdrags they sell are 3/8" which is a lot heavier .

    finally got ahold of them!!

    I finally got an answer from Back Drag.The cost shipped to NY is $176.00.This will include new nuts and bolts which earlier on their website were not included.This is for a 7.5 straight blade.Looks like a pretty decent item.Seeing I do a lot of back dragging, I may order 1 especially now with 1/2 off shipping.

    No problem!!!! Glad to help.

    Glad to help you out as many others here have done for me. Not sure if the western holes will line up but the Boss backdrag has oblong holes on it to adjust up or down to allow for your cutting edges wear. I am ordering 1 next week to take advantage of the 1/2 off shipping rate. BTW- guess were are kinda neighbors.I live up in Youngstown NY. Quite the snow you guys had-hope you made alot of $$ as we didnt have a flake here. Pete. ( PETE'S PLOWING)
