    How do you set your cutting edge. Do you have it even with the shoes or above the shoes. I have a wet snow and the box does not seen to be clean up the lots down to the asphalt very good. I have my cutting edge about 1/8"-1/4" above the shoes. What do yo all think and what is you experience. This is only my second push with the new box.

    Supposed to be 1/4-1/2" below the shoes. Apparently you're supposed to put about 1/4" spacers under the shoes, then have the back edge of the edge touching pavement.

    The cutting edge has to be below the shoes. We always loosen up the cutting edge, set the box down with 1/2" plywood under the shoes, then tighten up the cutting edge.

    This has worked for us, the last four seasons we used one.
