    Just some advice on that since it is your 1st year.

    Watch pushing up against fences to much. I have seen many bent or plowed over through the years. Even that one that looks fairly strong. I saw a guy stacking snow up along a brick wall one year and the whole wall fell over. It was a decoration wall but still.

    It was funny to watch but he had to pay a bunch to have a mason rebuild it.

    Nice vids. Wish I had someone along to tape while I was pushing.

    Nice pics and vids...If I was in that truck I would have started at the entrance and plowed out from there .. With blade angled I bet it would have taken fewer passes.

    Nice vids! But drive then drop the plow to reduce wear and tear on the truck :jester: I always tell people that.

    Cool videos,

    Maybe just me, but you seem to not use an angled pass at all. Mind you I just skimmed the videos.

    I agree, also if you do angle don't take as big as a pass while pushing, it will keep some of the snow from trailing off to the already plowed side. Just saves alittle clean-up at the end. Otherwise looks good, you will learn from experience and figure out some short cuts.

    Ya pushing up to the fence like that will bite you in the butt, even the tree your pushing too can only take so much and then SNAP! and you'll say "I wish I hadden't done that!"
    just saying because I've seen it happen too many times. my .02 cents :D

    Yea for the first time plowing not bad... not as efficient as he could have been, but with experience I am sure he will get better...

    BTW nice choice of music!!!!
