    I know this has been covered a bunch of times but after searching this site for what seemed to be hours one day, I gave up. Now I return to you with my own personal back drag edge thread...again. I know someone had pictures of a backdrag edge on this site and direction to fabricate. Any help would be great, the search engine on this site stinks.

    I am looking for pictures, ideas or even a store bought back drag edge for an eight foot mm plow. My welder is sitting around looking for work and I thought it to be a good time of year to get on this. Thanks

    Tell me a price and I will see if its cheaper than what my fabricator can do it for. Im south of Boston. I have no Idea what the price would be for one...scrap metal and some man hours put into it. It is exactly what I was thinking of making so let me know.

    I had my back drags made by Pappas welding in Salem Ma 978-740-8993. Very heavy duty. A very commercial unit. Good luck Brian:drinkup:

    That sounds reasonable. I am in the middle of moving and will not have internet until at least tomorrow night so I will get back to you asap.

    Do those guys use real cutting edges when they make them or is it a scap metal deal like I have seen around here? How long do these things last? I know a bunch of people have them around Waltham and west (almost every plow I saw last winter) but I hardly ever see them south of Boston. I know someone has to be making them. It just seems worth it when 80% of my plowing is in reverse.
