    Hello, I'm a self employed mechanic looking to supplement my income this winter. I just picked up a 7.5 Meyers poly plow for my F150 4x4 manual with 4.9L.

    I'm wondering where I can find information on logistics like where to push the snow and why, how far back to make piles to account for future snow, how to plow in business lots with curbs... I would like to study up a bit and try to be prepared. Any advice is appreciated.

    Do you have at least 1 million in general liability insurance yet?

    Push snow away from the building, push it back as far as you can, stack it as high as you can. Regarding curbs, don't hit them very hard.
