Speedwing for back dragging?

    I currently have a Western straight blade with a back drag blade. The back drag really does a good job for getting down to the surface.

    I am looking at buying a speed wing or power blow. I was told that a back drag blade could not be put on either of these plows. Is this true? And more importantly how do these plows do in scraping down to the surface when trying to back dragging?

    Thx

    the speed wing does ok back dragging. you will need to pin the wings back for the best results but still not bare pavement. I find the 810s are much better for back dragging. i made a back dragging blade but with no good results.
