gravel lots and my windshield

    I have eight very large gravel lots that i am plowing with a 2003 f-250 6.0 diesel and a boss v xt. The problem i am having is in the last month of use my windshield is almost shot. The ice and gravel dust continue to collect on the windshield wipers and act as sand paper. I have a snow deflector on the plow but still doesn't work like i would like it to. Has anyone seen a product or come up with an idea to keep from replacing a windshield every other month?

    Don't use the wipers when you plow it or slow down.

    Tear-offs like my motocross goggles just bigger. NASCAR uses full windshield tear-offs. Don't know where you would get them though.

    Are you using a foil or belting on the plow? That would be a good start
