    Hey guys,

    Has anyone ever tried to retrofit a second cutting edge on a plow that faces the "wrong way" in order to create a cleaner surface when backdragging?

    If not, why not?

    Nice, I am going to look into it . . .

    I don't have the facilities to fab something like that myself. Hopefully one of the local shops would have something.

    I have them on a couple of trucks, they seem to work decent.

    I would like one of those hinged back drag edges for my western unimount. I don't have welding equipment or anything like that. Any ideas where I could have one made or buy one around Buffalo, New York?

    I'd check with a few of your local welders and see if they can do it. If you can find a pic of what you want, bring it in and show it to them.

    I am also in WNY and am going to check at General Welding and Fabrication (Boss dealer in Elma). I'll let you know. . . .

    I have also had good experiences at Casullo's.

    But Casullo's (http://www.casullos.com) has them. They can install for $135. But that is the factory ones from Western, not the spring loaded ones discussed above.

    Most welding shops are pretty clever in making things. If they haven't made one, I'm sure a picture or description of the backdrag edge would be enough for someone to go on. I had a local guy make one for my plow -- it was like $200 for materials & time
