    How is the MVP Plus with back dragging? Could a back drag edge be added? What holds the wings from moving? Does it have something like the smart locks on the Boss? If so does it come with the plow or is it separate? One more question, has anyone hit something on one side that caused the cylinder on a wing to break? Thanks Rich

    The MVP's backdrag about as good as any other Vee plow, which usually isn't quite as good as a staight blade but fine non the less. The backdrag edges do help and are a good investment. Western makes backdrag edges for the MVP's. The MVP's use double acting cylinders on the wings to so the wings will hold the position you put them in (which is a standard feature). As far as breaking wing cylinders, generally they will bend/dent the back side of the wing support where the cylinder attaches or bend the wing cylinder itself before anything actually breaks.
