    Ok, what do you do when the snow is so high you can't roll it back anymore? I do not have a wing plow and no one has a truck with one for hire.

    I would guess a snowblower should work.

    Two ways to do it.

    1. Drive faster and the snow will roll over. This is not a good practice, I mean it as a joke.

    2. Have a loader come in and fix move the banks back.

    I find that even with my light equipment, you can cut the high banks with the plow raised and angled all the way to the side. but, you have to have sufficient speed and steer slightly into the bank. for my 4 cyl. CJ 5's, use low range, 2nd to third gear, and keep the coal on! Otherwise when you let up you will be bounced off the bank!
