• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Back drag blades

Hello we are looking for a company who makes and sell front back drag blades for a few of our trucks. We cant run rear blades all trucks have sanders and have seen inexpensive front ones but forgot where we did see them?

I think there is a manufacturer that makes a front plow that can change from a conventional plow to a back drag plow. Hinker!, I think thats the name of the company.

I also saw some info. on front back drag blades in the latest issue of Snow business magazine. I will try and find it.

Hiniker makes a backdragging plow called the C- Plow.
I bought one last year and though it saw limited use (no snow)
I was impressed with its backdragging capabilities. The blade is
hindged in the middle with a cutting edge on top, so when dragging
you have a cutting edge on the ground.

Try Crysteel Truck Equipment, they have a drawing of one on their site. I'm home for lunch or I would try to find a link for you.

Also, try a search of Plowsite. This was discussed a few weeks back. There was an actual picture of a backdrag blade that a welding shop had made. Looked pretty slick to me.

Hope this will help out,

Try a local welding shop or email me and I will set you up with a welder that makes mine. You can see a pic of mine in this thread( are two blades better than one)
