    You must not have seen my advise - "Don't let snow get in your A-frame".:eek:

    I've been in that spot a couple of times. Nothing works except a shovel.

    That same thing happened to me Sat a.m.--tried to wiggle it out, no luck. Ended up digging the plow out of the pile--took about 20 min.

    Mick, you couldnt be more right on this one, I have been hung up a few times on snow banks, but this year with all the big storms we have recieved I didnt get stuck once in a bank.

    Probably because I stoped ramming hard into the banks.:nod:

    You gotta do what's needed with what you have for tools. If all you have a is a plow truck and not a loader, Bob cat, etc. Pushing them back as far as possible sometimes is necessary. I never popped a line. I do it sometimes half a blade at a time with the blade angled. Hitting it strait may just pack it in. I know you don't want to beet the truck so just go a little at a time and not when it's frozen solid.

    Been there done that. BUT not since I got my V-plow. Now I can stack twice as high without the fear of getting hung up.
