Now that the last snowfall has melted here in central Illinois, I can see that the pipe that I put on the edge of the Meyer truck plow didn't prevent all the gravel from being picked up and deposited in the grass. I used some 1.5" diameter pipe and tack welded it to the blade. I'm sure that the pipe helped, but since there was still some gravel that I'll have to put back into the driveway, I'd like to get some advice on how to reduce that. The ground was pretty well frozen when I bladed the 4 - 5" snow, but perhaps the issue was operator technique. I tried to keep some of the weight off the blade, but I found it hard to find a balance of plowing effectiveness vs digging in a little. What is the best diameter of pipe to use? Would a rubber edge work better? I have about 1000 feet of gravel drive, and only a small area of concrete.
Here's a photo of the setup.
