    It might help if you specify what brand/type of box you have... rubber or steel? sounds like you have a rubber edged pusher?

    If it has a rubber edge there isn't much you can do, aside from pre-treating your lot better? If it's steel you should be able to adjust the edge so that it sits on the ground.

    that rubber edge isnt going to scrape good at all. its just going to bend backwards and not cut into the snowpack
