Pull plow Question

    So I am pretty sure that I am going to invest in a Daniels Pull Plow this year. The only remaining concern that i have is about the clearance when going up angled drives from street level and coming back down to street level from an upward angled drive.

    Do these plows have enough clearance when doing this? I would hate to ruin the plow, assembly, or hitch

    A good number of the drives I do are angled up from street level.

    Anyone have any feedback? I haven't been able to find much.

    That looks like less that 17". I think mine is 13". The bottom of my Daniels mount hit on one driveway that had an upward angle starting at the curb. Not fun when you are sliding down backwards. The front plow hit too if I slid down too fast. 2500 hd also. Has to be a real quick upward angle to hit.

    Wouldn't like to plow without it though had it for 9 years now.

    I never scraped the center lift cylinder but sometimes the plow would hit on a extreme angle...I had 1 drive that no joke was45 degrees. Of course the front plow hits too, so what difference does it make
