    From last year, a fresh 11" snow on top of the 3 feet already on the ground. Had to work at this one because the piles were already huge. Look at the front walk at the end of the video.

    since were on stacking, are you raising the plow as you pull in to the pile or is that all snow lifting the plow?

    Lift into pile. Multitasking especially if the back plow is down at that same time...

    How long did it take you to get use to using and remembering that you had the back blade on the truck, yours looks like it's about 8 feet in your pics.

    I remember one time that I couldn't figure out what I was hung up on - the truck wouldn't go backwards. That was the only lesson I needed for raising plow before backing.

    Same for hitting walls, you learn pretty quick.

    One time on a hilly driveway in very icy conditions a customer was moving his car even though he was instructed not to and I was going up the driveway, lost traction and slid back down the hill into the side of his moving car. We hit at a 45 degree angle, the corner of my back plow pierced the car door and peeled it open like a can opener, 4k damage to Lexus, back plow no damage. All in slow motion like 5 mph. If only he hadn't moved out of the safe spot.
