    Did my first bit of plowing today. Did my drive and aprons twice and 5 or 6 others. For never plowing before, I got us home in one piece. :drinkup: Only problem I had besides being slow and head spinning was a stone drive I did with 3x5 landscapes. Had some problems back dragging and then trying to plow over them. Ripped one out and put it back. I wonder if I should have back dragged or plowed it all to the tree lawn/street and then try to push it into the corner of the street and drive, to miss them damn timbers?

    You might try keeping the plow lifted an inch or so (takes a little practice) even backdragging. Can you put markers there so you know where they are next time (I assume you're talking about 3"x5' timbers?).

    Yes, 3x5s, I kind of knew where they were but you have to be quick on the draw. If you pick up to quick to plow over them you leave a mess.
    I wont mind if they don't sign up for steady service.
