    I put this exact same one on my 8' Super Duty last year. It works really well.It comes in 2 4' sections with longer bolts. Fairly ez to install. Just be careful when back dragging that you don't catch anything because it will catch it.

    Thanks for the feedback. What kind of things does/can it get hung up on? Any Examples? (I'm a newbie) I was planning on getting it for 90% driveway work.

    Manholes, Catch basins, Any utility top, You would be better off with a pull behind Ebling or similar. There was some Daniels for sale somewhere on PS. Of course you have to go with your budget. I can't say I ever heard anybody regret the investment on a pull behind. You will be much more productive.

    Absolutely! I ran Daniels pull plows for years and they were the best money I spent on equipment for driveways. If budget is a concern buy something used. You'll be kicking a$$ on drives time wise, which means you can do more and make more money.

    Ive used backdrag edges for 30 years cant remember ever snagging on anything in the driveway. HOWEVER when you raise the blade the backdrag edge is now the lowest edge I HAVE snagged that when trying to back up after a push, snaged on rocks,stumps even ice. But that is rare I still use them on all my plows. they work great.
