    Just had a Snow Dogg installed and had a few questions

    There are washers where the shoes are how many washers should there be so the blade take away all the snow? Im assuming the more you have the less the blade with scrape? There are 8 on there right now and I dont think it does a good job removing the snow.

    Plus is it best to use the Float button or just drop the plow manually down till it hits the ground?

    Sorry for all the stupid questions but Im new to this

    Take washers off and use the shoes as a doorstop. When you drop the blade keep it in float,that is what it means ,it will float over the surface if it's uneven.

    To answer you question the washers for the shoe are used to set the blade height when in float mode> Just like grandview said,by increasing the amount of washer under the shoe will keep the blade from physically touching the ground. You use the washer like spacer,each one(washer) is about 1/8 thick so by building it up from the bottom you willl begin to rais the blade off the pavement..So When working on regular pavement no washer or leave washer on but all on top of shoe.Then when you have to plow a GRAVEL drive you use the washer to adjust the height of the blade just above the gravel so you don't plow of the gravel as well by having thye blade all the way down .Same technic used for brick paved drives if you have ametal blade rather than a poly blade. HOPE THIS HELPS Good luck Thumbs Up
