avoiding snow left on inside of curves

    When plowing a long dirt road with two sharp 90 degree curves, how can I avoid leaving a load of snow on the inside of the curve. Maybe I shouldn't have the plow angled fully in the curve direction. Should I leave the plow straight?

    Thanks, that's what I've been doing but I was hoping I was doing something wrong I could correct.

    bigger blade or more passes thats just about the only way it will work
     
  5. As others have said more passes and start towards the middle of curve and then each subsequent pass push the snow closer to curb.

    push from the inside of the curve to the outside edge, so you are angling all of your snow to the outside (long edge) of the curve.
