    Can anyone tell me how this plow preforms backdraging. I do a lot of backdraging on my route and I am not happy with how my boss vee preforms, and I don't want a rear backdraging plow. Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    It backdrags fine until you extend the wings. When the wings are extended, they rotate forwarders when back dragging. I think it's an intentionally designed safety feature. IMHO, I hated it last winter and wished there was a way around it, but there wasn't.

    well, to toally confuse you, i own 3 810 plows and i back drag my drive and a couple of the neighbors but i wouldnt want to charge anyone for them, mine kind of skip when you back up and leave a little skif of snow and then the blade tends to ride up on the snow that builds up under the a frame. maybe its just my plows but thats why i keep the westerns around, they do more backwards that they do forward, they do a better job than my blizzards at backdragging. however, i make money going forward and nothing will outperform an 810 when they are going forward.
