    I am new to biz. Can anyone tell me the right plow shoe adjustment? I have a new Snow-Way with downpressure.

    that all depends on what kind of plowing you're going to do, whether you're going to salt, what surfaces you're plowing, etc.

    If your plowing a gravel drive or lot, keep the shoes on until the ground freezes. Then raise them all of the way up or take them off and leave them at home.
    Adjust; as close to the surface your plowing as you can.

    The down pressure is useless, unless the cutting edge is on the ground and the shoes are off, other wise your wearing off the bottom of your shoes.
    Hope this helps, I use to have a jeep with a snow-way.

    I find the best place for the shoes is on my desk holding my invoices down. I have never used them. I only plow asphalt lots and concrete sidewalks. A cutting edge lasts me 3-4 years.
