    I was wondering if it is bad on a plow to back drag without the appropriate back drag blade?

    I backdrag with no backdrag blade without an issue. It does the job but a blade would Prob leave better results.

    Why would it be bad?

    No there isn't but I was just making sure. I see so much hype about buying the back drag blade so just had to ask...

    The backdrag blade just helps scrape a little better because it's angled back so digs in a little better than the plow's own edge. The lighter the plow is, the more effect a back drag edge would have because a heavier plow won't float over the snow as much.
