    I do 35 drive ways most with a garage. At end. And a condo complex pretty small 15 units along a long tee so lots of backdragging. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. 4300 for straight and 6000a for power plow also i have a 2011wife 2500 hd 6'0 litre reg cab gas truck. Thanks

    Really IMO you want a back blade before anything else.

    I would go with a straight blade with a back drag edge. Blizzard goes all the way up to 9' straight blades and hands down look like the most well built straight blades on the market. Dont get me wrong I love the power plows but for back dragging I think the straight blade would be better and might be a little eaiser on your trucks front end.
