    I have a question. If you replaced the lift chain on a western plow with some sort of solid bar, would you get some version of down pressure? I am just looking to try and get a better bite on back dragging, and this idea came to mind. Let me know what you guys think, pro's and con's, if it is doable I might give it a try.

    Not if it is a gravity down cylinder.
