    Hi All,
    I am new to the forum, and am looking for a plow for my driveway/yard. I have a very long gravel driveway, and because of the amount of snow we get at my house I have to plow about 2 acres of grass in my yard. After 3 years of plowing with an old Western cable operated plow, I have pretty much decided on a Blizzard Power Plow. I think that the bucket mode, and the wings would save me about a half hour a night. but it hit me today that the wings may have a hard time with the uneven ground in a yard and driveway combo. Does anyone use the power plow for driveway/yard plowing? Are the wings fragile?

    Wings are fine. They will dig in tho. So watch that

    They are fine, I do a few long gravel drives and one partial gravel lot. No problems!

    Searching for info on this gravel guard you speak of, interesting. Thumbs Up

    I know I dont like running the shoes on my 700' gravel driveway run. Prefer to stop just before touching.
