    was wondering if it is possible to add down pressure to a newer ('09) 8' straight blade. i kind of have a feeling it would be a PITA w/ all the extra valves and what not. plus i dont know if you can put DP on the scissor lifts? i love my hiniker but also like sno-ways DP, but dont want to trade

    Anything is possible, you would have to plumb into a pressure port on the pump, rewire the controller so you would get the pump to run when going down, dual acting lift cylinder, other than that it should be easy:D If you want it for back dragging why don't you just make up a back drag blade, if you want it to scrape better you could add a heavier/thicker cutting edge
