    I think it would be nice to have a list of 10-20 Tips or tricks that you experienced guys could tell us newbies.

    Sound like a good idea? If so post up your Tips or Tricks:waving:

    Tip for removing packed snow infront of garage door that will not back drag:

    Scrape forward toward the garage with a SLIGHT angle.

    Stop 2 to 5 feet in front of door (depending on how much snow is in front of the blade).

    Lift blade, shake the snow off of it with a quick left-right-left-right motion.

    Drive forward so the pile of loose snow is behind the blade.

    Drop the blade and drag the hopefully loosened powder back out of the driveway.

    This might be an old trick, but I haven't seen too many drivers use it (maybe because they have backdrag edges!).
