    you guys should try an old state highway truck you could push that with a single axle we use them for an every day snow and push like that all the time. I am also hoping your Ford is 2 wheel drive that looks like a normal snow roll and a good normal push for my 6.0 powerstroke

    Our ford is 4 wheel drive. t opened it up but couldn't push back the piles. this was heavy snow. plus he didn't have ballast in the bed and the tires kept spinning

    That thing looks sweet but your right, not really meant for going forward 20' and then backing up. That would take forever due to the amount of time shifting forward to reverse :eek:
