    I an considering a quad and plow for my rental properties- some of my sidewalks are only 36 inches wide while others are over 40 inches. I would also be plowing around 3 good sized "mini lots" for my tenants with around 90-140 feet of driveways preceeding the parking lots. Please give me some of your valuable info regarding the best blade size. I am currently looking at a cycle country 42 or 48 inch. Thanks

    as anyone that do sidewalks thought about doing a stepped plow, where it has x amount of plow then cut up a couple '' on the ends as sort of wings that dont hurt the lawn on the sidesbut will push the banks back still?

    Wish we had one for the 800 instead of the regular straight plow.

    Buy an old blade the same as you have now and take a grinder to the bottom 2"x6" at each side of the blade and walla!

    OR

    Make a bigger blade edge and cut it out of that!
