    Just wondering if anyone has bought a backdrag blade for their straight blade Boss yet and their honest thoughts on it. Looks like it cleans pretty good.Probably won't ride up and over the snow like the factory cutting edge does.Thanks. Pete

    I am on my second back drag edge and will not go without one again. They are great. I bought one from western and just torched the bolt holes in it because i saved over $100 over buying one from the boss dealer.

    I bought one last year from BackDragSnow.com or something like that...it works ok. You cant backdrag forever with it scraping down to pavement. It WILL ride up eventually, just not as soon as it would without one. I was looking into buying another one for my new truck/plow but they are over $200 shipped and the price must have went up, because knowing me I wouldnt have paid that much for something like that. I might just try and swap it over to the new plow as I bought a full back blade for my other truck this year.

    Oh and one more thing, make sure you survey the sites first, and check to see if theres any edges or cracks in the surface that would normally cause the plow to trip if going forward....cuz when that backdrag edge catches something, you'd better hope the fillings in your teeth are solid (if you get my drift)....
