After Snow blowing the driveway a week ago the remaining snow had turned to slush with the warm weather. Yesterday, I decided to try out the 318 with the 54 blade on it. The 318 doesn't have wheel weights or chains, but worked pretty good. It only spun a couple of times when the blade dug into the gravel. The main problem I had was I couldn't get the float position to work for the blade. I managed to get a lot of the slush removed and with the sun out today and 42* temps the driveway is almost clear.
