    Have a 7.5 poly pro. Western says no backdrag blade available for poly blades. Anybody out there using one on a poly blade and if so how do you like and any pictures if you got them. Thanks.

    I really believe there is not enough weight to have a back drag blade on a poly plow

    The pro poly plows are actually heavier than the steel plows....there should be more than enough weight.

    A friend of mine had the hinged type on his 8.5' poly pro. Said it worked fine

    Here is a web site showing a back drag blade that swings

    If your were changing your cutting edge blade, you can use your old one to make this one....Or just have a welding shop make something like this for your plow

    Sorry he had his truck repoed. If the link twinman doesn't help let me know I made my Dads, mine and a few friends that are the swing type. I'll have to talk nice to the girlfriend to take and load the pics, I can run a plow with the best of them but the computer is kinda new.
