I saw this video. I've always been a little interested in this type of back blade/plow. I have no experience with them. Is this a good setup, it seems to be in good shape. The back blade/plow part starts at 6:00.

i had one of these and they are quite handy, but a little light for commercial work.
Being galvanised is what attracted me to it and its low weight so I could run it with the salter. Made a little mod of adding some canvas to keep the salt off the motor pump and.cylinder.
Im actually a lot quicker backdragging with the front blade, if you have little events they shine, too much spillage on anyrhing more than a couple inches.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I'm just kinda thinking out loud here. I do have some long narrow driveways that it would probably work really well in. It might slow me down in a few others though, just being on the truck.

Think Cheaneu in Thompson Manitoba runs one.

We've got one for our jeep setup. It's light which works well for the jeep.
I believe we've had it for about 8 years, other than replacing the motor it's been reliable.

There was a guy back in the mid 90's around here that had a back blade/plow on a square body K5 Blazer. Worked really well from what I remember. Haven't seen to many around here since then.
