810 leaving scraping marks?

    Last year was my 1st year with the 810 with a back drag. This spring I noticed on almost all of my tared driveways that I had left scraping marks on the driveway. For people who had their driveway sealcoated - they now had these marks all over the driveway. I also noticed these same scraping marks but rust colored on cement driveways.

    Anyone else experience this - what am I doing wronge?

    I previously had a Western straightblabe with a backdrag and never had this problem.

    Thx for any feedback.

    810 is a lot heavier. You can try using the polar wing edges, it may help.

    I think it's the nature of the beast, these things scrape the best of any truck mounted plow out there, and some scrape marks may be the consequence of such.

    I haven't noticed much for scrape marks on my customer's properties, other than these goofballs that resurface with gravel, then complain about us scraping it up... I run u-edges on the wings too, I suspect that helps lessen marks, especially on the curbs...
