    Im thinking your friend has never pulled a disk. Pulling it backward will do nothing other than ride on top of ground and plug up the front gang. Try it out by just backing up with your disk lowered. Let us know how it goes.

    I'm thinking his friend is trying to see if the OP will fall for it!! In other words, he might be trying to pull a fast one. I have never seen this done, or read/heard where it was either suggested or recommended to do that. If the friend was being serious, oh well.....
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!
