This winter is the first year that I have the 2025R...my plan was to use the AF10F plow on my 450-ish feet of blacktop driveway. I have a walk-behind snowblower, which is a great machine, but for those 2-6 inch snows, the snowblower is very slow...when I bought the tractor, I figured a plow would just sail right through and do a great job in half the time it takes to snowblow.
Here's my trouble....getting the plow down to the ground. A buddy of mine owns a paving company and he plows in the winter...he suggested I adjust the plow about 1/4" off the driveway. If I do that, I can't seem to get the driveway clean and I end up with packed snow on the surface. You know the kind....the stuff that packs hard, turns super-slick and you never scrape off until the temps get above 40.
I hate to go back to the snowblower for the small snows....the tractor really is quicker (and much more fun!)
In some experimentation, I am running the plow edge and actually scraping the asphalt a bit. I can't imagine this is good in the long-term. Also, what is finicky is the height adjustment. I have the plow pucks adjusted so I can get the plow edge on the surface....by using the left/right function on the SCV, I can get the plow edge just up off the asphalt or down against.
I don't know.....am I missing something? And words of advice?
