    does anyone feel there v blade does not back drag as well as a straight blade? or is it just mine ? I have a western mvp just seems it doesnt back drag as well as my straight blade and they all have new cutting edges.

    dont get me wrong i love the V plow but i feel all in all it doesnt scrape as good as my old straight blade... which is weird being heavier

    My boss doesn't back drag great, but it's not bad. My snoway is a different story, down pressure and V is the best of both worlds.

    My Hiniker V doesn't backdrag worth a darn. Hiniker offers backdrag blades for the V now for $300 installed. I'm pretty tempted to make that investment with all of the residential drives I do

    are the attack angles on V blades the same as the straights?

    No additional info. My dealer just said he could get them. Not sure if it is a Hiniker or aftermarket part

    My Western MVP Plus plows backdrag great! The old style Unimount MVP's don't. I'm assuming you probably have an old style.

    yes brant's mine is the old style mvp. did they make some big changes to the new ones ? also i was wondering if i could custom fab mine to make the new wings that can go on the new mvp fit my old one. im not sure if you have wings but i see they just connect to a bar on the back of the new mvp's . was wondering if i could fab up something to make them fit mine, but someone told me the new mvp's may have a different shape to the way there curved. seeing you have a new mvp do you think i could make them work ??
    thanks for any info.

    My VX-T back drags great, much better than my old Western. After dicking around with different positions you can put it in while back dragging, a straight seems antiquated by comparison.
