    Does anyone have pictures of the angle they have on there back drag edges. I made a swinging edge but it likes to bounch or chatter. Is this an angle problem. Any ideas to help it?

    You made a pair of back drag blades???? Why, to buy them is cheap.

    Either case ... on certain surfaces you can get chatter when the blade grabs and there is not enough slick to allow it to be pulled back easily. Usually I find this on cement only.

    yes i had one made and the only reason was retail around where i live they go for around 45 a foot to make or 350 if you buy one from a dealer. I had all the steel to make one and it is the exact same as what the retail store would sell me. Yes i noticed that it does it more on concrete then asphault. If i adjust the angle of it swinging down to more of a 90 degree angle would that help?
