    I'd just do like the ones I've seen, get a piece of flatstock prolly 3/8 inch thick and then make little "arms" that attach to the plow so the flatstock swings on these arms when plowing forward it just gets dragged along btu when you backblade it digs in.

    take 2 pieces of 3inch flat stock at least 1/4 inch will do and figue out the angle you need to have when the plow is down-once you have that angle weld the 2pieces together ,then loosen cutting edge and slip between edge and plow ,then retighten the cutting edge bolts to hold in place ....works wonders

    Do you have any pics of this setup? I need to get a setup to simplify those hard residentials and tight spots.
