    Moving snow tips

    Hello,

    I picked up my 1023E this week and I’m ready to tackle the next snow we get. I have the front loader and a rear blade. Removed the mowing deck. Waiting for snow...

    I have about 50 yards of asphalt driveway. My biggest concern is digging a big chunk of driveway up while plowing/pulling.

    Is there any benefit to adding a PVC pipe strip to the rear blade that would help prevent this? I’ve seen a few videos of folks building a wood plow fitting over the loader to push snow. Does this work?

    Any tips or tricks for making the most of this set up?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    Rear blade you can turn around backwards, it won’t dig in. Edge tamers for you bucket or cut a pipe to go across the edge of bucket and use loader in float position.

    I got a rear blade and took the steel cutting edge off....replaced w a 1.125” thick conveyor belt edge from rubberwearstrip.com
    Just to use on asphalt. For a 50” blade the total cost was around $60.00

    Thank you all for the replies.

    Okay, I’m going to ask a really dumb question...

    Turn the blade backwards and plow pulling forward?

    Yep spin it all the way around, so,cutting edge is facing backwards, drive forward. It won’t dig in as much. Wet snow it don’t work so good as blade rides up on snow.
    I also welded brackets on mine for plow shoes.
    Rubber cutting edge like fdmars mentions also works good.

    Horse stall mat works well too. Its cheap, and you can make several "edges" from one mat.
