    Looks like you loose a lot of traction having to push Down so hard to scrape seems kinda silly...

    Hmm didn't seam like it did a great job. Left lots of snow on the first push. Plus that monster of a machine was having a hard time at some points.

    I think its because the top was closed in. Snow builds up and lifts the pusher. I've seen videos of them with the open tops push mountains of snow.

    I seen guys at the tire shop using a sawzall with blades that they sharpen on a bench grinder like a knife blade. they were cutting through big loader tire's like they were butter, shocked the heck out of me that it worked but it did.

    a demo saw works pretty good to cut tires. i agree ya gotta cut the side wall(the top of the tire in this application) for it to workk good IMO

    Yup ! …. I can see that, we used to cut up a ton of bias ply tires for boat dock bumpers with a big butcher knife (but that was car tires) like butter … until you get to the steel cords in the BEAD …. Ouch ! That's where the Zip cut comes in to play ...
