    Plowing with shoes is like having sex with condoms...designed to protect but it's not half as good as it is without.

    That's very true. I only use shoes when it's realy soft. I mite have them on my plow 95% of the time at the most.

    The only reason I use them is becouse my Dad paid extra for them and he expects me to use them on storms like that. If it was up to me I wouldn't run them at all.

    Nope. I just kept the plow up a bit. There was only a few small spots that got dug up. Next year I won't have that problem.

    I used to throw them in the truck bed to weigh down empty salt bags so the wouldn't blow out.

    I didn't have to use shoes because we only ended up with an inch or two on the pavement here.
