    I cant tell if he re-enforced the rib were the backdrag mounts, Ive seen that style of mounting before on Fisher plows (Almost all you see in my area) and the bolt through the rib eventually wore a big hole and broke the rib. If the rib is re-enforced it should be OK

    Seems to me if you have the pivot bolt softer then the rib, wearing a hole through it shouldn't be an issue.

    I have same thing on my plow. works great. Welder in Gardner Mass made it. He is meticulous, added angle stock for support, small bump stops. Few other things. $$ was around $300.

    I have a back drag blade for my v plow (not trip style/fixed) and it seems to work well. I never back dragged without it but i'm betting its works better with it on than off. I also runs shoes and i feel i get a good scrape with it on. I bought mine from backdragsnow.com, thought it was a little high but couldn't find anything else so it is what it is.

    The guy at backdragblades.com says they'll come loose and tear up a truck, plus they don't work. LOL.

    Since I'm a newbie, I'm not sure who to believe.I like the idea that this one floats and probably won't get material built up between the two blades. My buddy has a Western and that's his complaint with the fixed type.
