    Foil was fabricated from a Fisher plow.

    Can you post more pics of the back drag blade? Did you just take a cutting edge and trim it down height wise? I've been looking for some ideas for my blade (Boss 7.6 w/trip) but found that the springs get in the way. That look like it would be fairly in expensive to add. Thanks Michael

    Will take more today….Snow coming Friday!!!!!
    The back drag blade is made from an old cutting edge off of a state truck. The only cutting that has to be done know matter what you mount it to will always be the length. As for the back drag blade on the trip edge, this took some figuring. The way you see it in the pic, it will clear the frame when tripped and will ride up the strut during an extreme trip. It took a good amount of time to figure out how to make it work with the trip edge but it was actually easer then any other one that I have made. The things to remember….never make the drag blade have a permanent height. I have seen some like that on other threads. Once it wears down, that’s it. When it is free floating it will last till it wears to the bolts.

    Yes ... when you trip the edge to its fullest extent it will ride up the spring shaft. I have tested it when I built it and had the trip all the way back and the drag blade rode up perfectly.

    it looks like when backdragging it might ride up the shaft if theres alot of snow behind it. i guess not?

    When in reverse, the drag blade is stuck against the spring shaft cleat. It can't ride up unless the edge is tripped.
