    Do you use the plow shoes or do you take them off and just use the cutting edge?

    Pavement I usually raise them up so just the blade touches. On unpaved surfaces I drop the feet down to get abot a 1.25 inch below the blade so I leave the stones behind.

    No shoes here either. If I'm plowing one of the gravel drives that I've got, ground not froze, I just pull it all backwards.

    Takes longer, but I hate messing with shoes / spacers.

    No shoes. On gravel I just drop the plow then 2 taps up until the ground freezes, then it's all the way down!

    in the short time I have been plowing, No shoes. I have a couple of gravel drives and a couple of dirt drives. Frozen solid now so it's just like pavement.

    my shoes do nothing on my plow, my cutting edge is wide so the shoes dont touch the ground, there are on the plow for looks only lol. so if you need a cutting edge on your fisher,and need to use your shoes, dont put a boss edge on your fisher lol

    I have never used shoes. I have had a Western on a 1/2 ton Chevy and a Sno Way on a Ranger. Both worked equally well without them.
