    I had my dealer install this 2 years ago for $275, it works so well that if your on old pavement it can start picking it up:dizzy: That is why I always take pictures in the fall and warn customers if they have bad driveways that I might end up scraping too well:nod:

    That's awesome! Did they custom fabricate that? I would love to get one!

    I know Western makes a back drag edge that can be installed on the Pro Plus plows

    Yes the dealer is ThruWay Spring and I believe its either an employee that does it or they have someone come in an do it for them, either way I've been very pleased and I like the look of how they did it. At first I thought where they cut out for the springs and how there were only 3 hinges that something might break. But 2 years later I'm still hammering on it and no probs.

    does anyone know if this style setup would work on a LD? Backdragging the 4-5" of ice pellets today was virtually non-existant.

    Yup, it'll work. I had one on my LD, but never used it. Sorry to hijack your thread Grn Mtn.

    Sorry, I sold it in the fall. I bought it from BDavis on here. Check with him, he might have a few laying around.
