I purchased this plow to clear my drive but it is not doing a good job, see photo, I can't figure out the problem. It keeps tearing up things. Can any of you give me some good ideas on proper use. Any help would be appriciated.

I don't know if anyone else can see it or not, but your photo isn't showing up. What kind of plow is it? And what are you using it on?

I think the first issue with snow is that it is to removed minus the driveway surface, this machine might have the tendence to be used more by those contractors who do concrete work in the summers,lot of curb repair after using one of these.But with the ability to wing back the out side blades there is great potential for a prosperous residential snow business, and the ability to also do sidewalks without ever getting out of the machine.So I suggest since you own this that you go right out and get a couple more and go to the nearest Trailer park and start offering to do individual drives at a cut rate because of the speed and efficency at which you be able to operate.

Maybe if I tried an urethane edge it might work better? I'm also having trouble getting the machine into my storage shed any ideas.

Would taking the lights off the roof help?

Here's an idea,

Sell it to the airport I work at for 150k, what it is worth, and then take the money and hire 10 spanish laborers for the next century to sit outside your house to shovel your drive.

I think they are running rubber as it is in those photos, so get that off of there and buy some urethane, that will solve all your problems.

I don't see what the problem is.
Don't all you guys do driveways with these type plows?? It's what we use.
Seems to me you just need more practice.
Bring it up here to Erie and we'll try it out and let you know. Better yet, you come with it and we'll let you practice on our sites.

If your garage happens to be a hanger, your driveway is a 200 ft by 12000 ft runway, and your daily commuter is a 747, then I think it will work fine.

When you get done with the drive run around back and get the patio, would ya please?
Is this thread to remind us of the jackball that wanted to plow residentials with his Kenworth?
