    it just swing to the back and has no affect. but if backing up while you drop the blade it will stand on the back blade.

    When would you think the best time to make one is... in a mild week before the snow, or in the middle of a blizzard when you should be sleeping before plowing or out plowing your route?
    Make it now so you have it when the white starts to fall.

    I like those designs, but you both have full trip blades. the back drags I have seen for Fisher's have been more like the edge is dragging behind and cannot fold under like those, but drags behind the blade.

    So, has anyone done one of these for a Fisher?

    back drag attachment to a western V

    i am wondering about how to attach these things to my western V. it seems that a straight blade would be better for this but if there are any ideas on how to do this with a V blade i would really love to see your setup. i do alot of resi's so this would help me out alot.

    Back Edge

    I would like to see some more pictures from more people. Maybe some back edges on a 7-6 Western pro plow.
