    The weather conditions must be perfect. I have about a 6inch layer of snow that keeps sticking to the plow all night. Keep trying to shovel it off but just recoats fast. Will fuel oil work?

    FLUID FILM, Pam, WD-40, Wax, etc... Anything slick, just keep reapplying if it starts to stick.

    You need to adjust your plow so when you put it down, it hits the pavement hard enough to knock off the snow. I have never had that amount of snow stick to a plow, as to where I need to shovel it off. When there is no snow on any surfaces of your plow, what does it look like? Is it all rusted? If so grind the rust off, and re-paint it this summer. Then spray the crap out of it with Fluid Film, and re-coat it as necessary.

    If it's a poly blade, run ski/snowboard wax. Best solution, hands down.
