    I wouldn't bother. The proplus just because of its weight, backdrags better than most plows. The only reason why fisher needs one is when the plow has both front cutting edges, the psi on the cutting edge is reduced along with having a 60 degree cutting edge angle. Which makes it ride up over the snow when back dragging.

    I have made about 7 hinged backdrag blades for the guy I sub to. The way I did it was welded about 4 pieces of 1 1/2 x 1/2 flat stock, I didn't go all the way to the bottom of the edge (I think I left it about 3" short), in the top of the flats I drilled a offset hole twords the truck. I spaced the flats out as evenly as I could. I then used 2 pieces of 1 1/2 x 3/8 angle (per flat) to make the pivot. I welded them to the plow (I didn't want to since it was new, but he did...you could also bolt them) I saw them work....they worked pretty slick.
