    Every once in a while I'll see a plow stuck from backdragging to much and they're trying to dig it out. I was wondering if anyone on here ever had that happen to them.

    No. I can't think of any reason to backdrag that much. If you have to backdrag you should only need to do a length a little longer than the truck and plow. Then turn around, back in, and push it all out.

    Yea I only do the length of my truck then turn around also. Some people say they drag the whole drive, maybe a 50 footer, that way they don't leave compacted tread marks on it.

    The problem is they stop in the same spot,if your going to backdrag don't leave it all in one spot.
