    What is the Best plow for doing back dragging. The boss I use does not scrape down far enough when back dragging. It is brand new 8-2 v. Does ok but not down to pavement. Just some advice??

    None! My boss plow does better than any other brands that I have used, such as: Fisher, Meyer and Western. My suggestion is to get a pull plow. Just got to try my Daniels out today, hard to get use to, but scrapes down right to the pavement. From what I am told, once you get the hang of them you can save up to 50% of your time.

    Modify the light tower switch (that you use to for mounting) to operate from inside the cab. Flip that whenever you want downpressure.

    (That's a toungue-in-cheek recommendation) Get a rear plow as sold by SnowMan or Daniels.

    Sno-Way, has downpressure as a standard feature on the commercial models.

    I thought this plow looked pretty cool. ANyone demo it yet?

    It's the HINIKER C-Plow you can plow normal or turn it upside down to pull from the front of you.

    Looks like a good concept.

    Nice 'concept', but lots of moving parts. And... hiniker doesn't have a good rep for what they've been making.

    I am seriously considering looking at that c-plow. I do more drive ways than any thing, look to be great. I have herd several good things from people around here who use HINIKER plows. I live in Indiana, so we dont receive that many snow falls. It is just the fun of plowing that keeps me going. I may be getting a new truck, so I just can't decide on weather to get a new mount for my plow or sell the plow and get a new one.

    i wouldnt recomend the C plow. You say all u do is driveways
    but if ur like me snow is ur only winter money at some point u will want to do bigger areas such as lots and then u wont like the plow because it will take time to swich from back drag to normal. I would go with the rear plow and front plow. a buddy got 1 last year and i tried it out its great. save alot of time. so i bought one and now all i need is snow.
