    What I usually do, and it works fairly well for me is, drive in drop the plow, and back blade out until I am out in the road, then with the plow still down I drive forward until I am about 3 feet from the garage door, then I pick the plow up, drive ahead about a foot, then drop it again and back blade out. Then I redo the steps again on the other side of the driveway. Like I said it works pretty good.

    Get a Sno-Way with the down pressure. No going forward to break it up and several trips in and out to get it clean. Drop the blade, hit the DP switch, back up and your done. Clean the snow at the end of the driveway and off to the next one.

    A sno-way has what 250 lbs of down pressure? plus plow weight is what? apx. 490lbs=740lbs
    most of your Boss & Westerns weigh about that.

    Does the down pressure really work that well?

    Actually the DP adds over 500 lbs. in addition to the weight of the blade.
