    Has anyone successfully had a backdrag made and it not break? I'm looking to have one made for my 9' X Blade. Know anyone in the NH/MA area that can do it? Any pictures?

    My 8.6 Xtreme V was the prototype for Backdrag Edge a few years ago, I called him this year to see about getting one and the guy said he hasn't even started making them for the v blades yet wth!:confused:

    Regular strait X Blade...not extreme v.

    I'm looking for a hinged type as well.

    Brian, do you use a hinged back drag edge or a fixed edge?

    The hinged ones look very straight forward and easy to make. Would think pretty much anyone with a welder and chop saw could make one.

    I've seen some where if a cutting edge is used It will snap after a weld. I've seen some with angle iron welded to the whole length also (regular HD plows).

    Check out Fusion Welding in Tewksbury, MA. They have a video on you tube making a backdrag for a 8' X-blade, there prices seem resonable too, between $200-300. Check them out, kinda closer to you than anywhere around me, around boston
