    I am trying to find out the best way to use the plow for lots and concrete. I want to get a clean cut on the surface for snow removal but with the shoes on it seems not to work. I also do not know how to remove or move the center shoe up. Please help me out..

    thanks

    I still have my shoes on. I know some guys run without them. I do however have them set so that the blade is basically set on the ground. The center shoes is mounted on the plow the same as the others, and I believe I just had the plow in the scoop position, lifted off the ground when I adjusted them. Hope that is of some help!

    I know.. But the center one is covered and I can reach the top of the shoe to move it up like the two side ones.. How do I reach it to move it up?

    Raise the plow and put a jack stand under so the don't fall on you .Have the plow in scoop and get on you back and look under the center shoe.There's a cotter pin holding it pull the pin and it slides out with the washers.

    upgrade to the new style cutting edge..

    or get your gringer out and start grinding the hoof away.

    if you try and run down the road and wear it flat you take the chance at ripping it off. dont ask how i know.

    • When plowing in dirt or gravel, lower the plow shoes. This will raise the blade so you don't scrape the surface away. When plowing on asphalt or concrete, raise or remove the plow shoes so that you scrape as close to the surface as possible.


    The center shoe can be a PITA. lol
    Like Grandview mentioned use a jack stand and look under the plow.
    You can barley see the pin that holds it on.
    The new edges are a nice addition.

    Does it have the curb guard on it? Does that include both sides for the V-plow?

    yes its got the curb gaurd. plus the center puck delete.

    its only one side.
    they shipped the wrong one to me and wanted me to pay for shippin to return it. so i told them to shove it.

    so ive only got the spare for the drivers side.
