A continuing problem for most plowers is ripping up the turf,cinder.gravel etc. The float position works if your on pavement or frozen ground. Canting, or changing the pitch of the blade can help, but is no guarantee. There's a lot of high tech sensors out there. There must be a way to configure one to sense the distance from the ground to the blade. It would function when the control pad is in the float position for example. Just thought I'd run this idea on the forum and see what some of the innovators think.
