    a question for the experts... I had a new asphalt d'way installed 3 weeks ago now. That is where i will be putting the plow so i can get into my garage again. Suggestions for what i should put plow on to avoid putting marks in new d'way. Was considering plywood/OSB and 1X4 under blade?

    I would find somewhere else to put your plow. One hot day can can soften new blacktop and even on ply wood, the plow could leave marks in the blacktop. Did my driveway last year and on a hot summer day it still got soft enough for my grill to leave marks in it.

    Buy a sheet of 3/4 Advantech. A couple of 12" strips under the cutting edge to spread the weight so there's no dent and rust mark. Something similar under the foot.

    What kind and size of plow is it?

    maybe a pallet or some strong 2x4's but made into a sheet form to take up the whole plow length

    How about the garage or maybe just off the drive in the grass?
