• 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

Does the Western back blade really work?

Anyone using the back blade attachment type thing that Western has? I always wondered how something like that would work, and then I saw it on their site. Anyone using it?

If your referring to the xtra blade behind the standard blade. I have one and yes it cleans better than not having it. It won't do the same as pushing but it still cleans better than my boss.

It depends on how much back dragging you do and how much snow there is.

If you are back dragging 8" of snow the plow will start to lift up after a couple of feet and the extra blade won't help that much.

If you are only plowing 3" it will definately help to cut through down to the pavement.
