    Does a blizzard 810PP also have downpressure? It looks to me that on a power plow you operate wings with controller and a speed wing does things itself but in order to back drag you need to lock something else in. ???

    Short answer: No, yes, and yes.

    In stock form no down pressure, but because of the power hitch 2 way cylinder, down pressure can be obtained with some modifications. The wings are hydro on an 810, and spring/cable controlled on a speedwing. In order to be locked in straight blade, you have to physically pin the wings straight.

    but the cylinders on the wings are not locking cylinders, therefore when you backdrag, if there is enough force the wings will start to fold forward, but it doesnt really affect it that much. trust me we do ALOT of driveways which means alot of backdragging and this blade does that well b/c it soo heavy.

    Actually, on your plow, springs are what hold the wings straight, if you double them you could backdrag with your wings out.

    On my plows, I do have true hydro wings, and there is plenty force to backdrag with wings fully extended straight.
