    One of my guys came back to the shop like this. He happens to be the guy that builds them in house for us. What do you think happened?

    Hooked a pole of some sort. We have had Grapewood Frame in Wyoming straighten a number of back plows over the years for us.

    Looks like he didn't put enough support! Then hooked a curb

    Would like to see photo of the back side, looks like it would happen sooner ar later, if the only support is that top rail and a cutting edge, it's built way to week. That's a lot of torque from the wing to the nearest attaching point. I would think you want the wing to be the weak point, not the main blade. Needs a couple good sized rec. tubing supports across the back.
