    I just bought a new Snow Way plow and when it is all the way down, it's about a 1/2 inch off of the ground. What should the clearance be between the cutting edge and the ground?
    Can I adjust the clearance by adjusting the shoe height?

    The cutting edge distance to pavement distance should be 0 inches.
    I only use them for loose or unfrozen gravel.
    My clients pay for snow removal, not leave a Little snow behind.:waving:
