Backdrag on XLS?

    We only do residential plowing. Until recently, we only used 8' fisher straight blades with backdrag edges on them. A few years ago we started going to blizzard 810's and we now have four of them. We love our blizzards, but abandoned the backdrag edges because the blizzard is a full trip plow and it didn't seem possible to fab a backdrag that would work. Since the new XLS has basically the same trip and spring setup as my old straight blades, I was thinking that they would accept a backdrag blade? This would be a pretty mean setup if possible.

    Your not gonna need it. The attack angle is very aggressive on the trip edge, already acting as a nice back drag edge. Look in my signature.....Ill never go back to yellow again

    I haven't needed it to date on my XLS that I got in early Jan. The unit is heavy enough as is without adding anothe 150lbs. +/-.
