    I'm thinking of putting a back blade on one of our trucks just wondering how you guys have them mounted up to work with a spreader? Also what kind of back blades do you all like the most? Thanks.

    I don't see the sarcasm here? Not many people here in Southern Ohio have back blades.

    if you search] the site for what you are describing. back blade with spreader you will see what triple l is talking about. probably the only one with a v box and back blade.

    I must have somehow over looked your post while searching. Great looking rig Triple L! That is what I'm wanting to do myself.

    ProSeasons do you have any more pics of your set up? I have a 1075 snowex spreader I could use to keep my initail cost down on this rig. I was thinkin a srw truck would be better for driveways, does this back blade pull hard? BTW how is your bumper not rusty? My '01 Dodge is spot free except for the back bumper!

    This setup has worked well for me so far this year.

    I welded a receiver on the QD of the ebling. I had to narrow the supports on my spreader and make a 90 bend on the insert but it fit well. Not sure how other hitch type spreaders would fit in this configuration.
