I purchased this plow to clear my drive but it is not doing a good job, see photo, I can't figure out the problem. It keeps tearing up things. Can any of you give me some good ideas on proper use. Any help would be appriciated.

Thats an airport plow, no a driveway plow.

Do we have another guy that wants to plow residentials with a 16' plow?

I think the first issue with snow is that it is to removed minus the driveway surface, this machine might have the tendence to be used more by those contractors who do concrete work in the summers,lot of curb repair after using one of these.But with the ability to wing back the out side blades there is great potential for a prosperous residential snow business, and the ability to also do sidewalks without ever getting out of the machine.So I suggest since you own this that you go right out and get a couple more and go to the nearest Trailer park and start offering to do individual drives at a cut rate because of the speed and efficency at which you be able to operate.

Maybe if I tried an urethane edge it might work better? I'm also having trouble getting the machine into my storage shed any ideas.

Would taking the lights off the roof help?

Here's an idea,

Sell it to the airport I work at for 150k, what it is worth, and then take the money and hire 10 spanish laborers for the next century to sit outside your house to shovel your drive.

I think they are running rubber as it is in those photos, so get that off of there and buy some urethane, that will solve all your problems.
