    I finally got my pipe installed on the plow and today was the first day plowing with it. I can't believe that I didn't do this earlier. It makes plowing my drive/yard so much easier!

    Here are some pics. I don't have the brackets welded on yet but for now it is holding in place. I just don't plan on leaving the drive until it is bolted on! Works great, doesn't dig up the yard and leaves a smooth surface. Shoes dig trenches and if they don't, they leave a layer of snow behind!

    You better register that with the patent office!

    Looking good.

    I'm definitely not the first person to do this but I can't figure out why plow manufactures haven't come up with a scrape edge shaped this way!

    My guess is the cost and the fact it won't dig into hard pack snow.

    Yeah, for me, I hardly ever need to dig through hard packed snow. With that said, I did move a snow bank with this attached. It took a couple of passes to get to the ground but the weight of the plow pushed through the snow! For a gravel driveway (and pushing over the lawn) I don't see a better option!

    I backed mine with flat stock and welded it to the old shoes, that's what holds it in place
