    I was just wandering how some of you more experienced guys deal with the snow that comes of both sides of the blade while plowing. When I am plowing driving lanes it seems like I have to take 3 times the passes to get up the snow because of snow that roles off the sides of the blade. Is this why so many guys on here are using wings or v plows.I can really see where they could speed up a job. Is there a better way/more effective way to plow than I am tring..

    For instance when I start into a lan I usually will angle the blade so that I can push the snow into a wind row. I do this because I will have cars parked on both sides of the lane and I do not want to create burms behind them then I will come back with the blade straight and push the snow out of the lot. these drive lans are about 750 foot in length and 50 foot wide.

    With a straigh blade on a drive like that it will take more passes.Thats where the V or wings make a HUGE difference. I have a V and will never go back to a straight blade. It improves plowing time by about 40%. JMO
