    I'm using the scrape lock but it is nothing like snoway's down pressure.

    Yes I remember that scrape lock thing on the HTS. Have never had the chance to try it out though. I think you are probably stuck with the crappy back drag simply because the blade is so light. I would suggest putting some weight on it but it's just too light a plow to be adding anything. Really, that plow is designed for people who want to do their own driveway. It's not nearly enough for anything commercial, we call it the "hobby plow." I don't have any suggestions other than to get a bigger, heavier plow. Sorry.

    I would put a hinged back drag blade on it. I have a Boss Sport Duty with a hinged backseat blade. Works great.

    agreed the hinged backdrag bars are way better than any bolt on ones.
