Well, it only took 2 seasons of plowing but I figured out something today that I thought I would share with the everyone that is "plowing challenged" like me...lol

Anyway, I do a lot of in town plowing so I'm doing sidewalks and such and so there isn't much area to push the snow sometimes. So when it gets too deep it throws my ATV into an angle that is not aligned with my cleared path behind me. Every time I try to back up I was always running up the embankment on either side and getting stuck. BTW snow is 2 or 3 foot deep on either side. So I would have to rock back and forth or do a bunch of little K turns to start backing up. Well. If you just lift the blade and continue forward for a foot or two the ATV just straightens up on the plow path. Then you can back up easily.

This is probably plowing 101 but it is saving me a bunch of forward and reverse and spinning tires and cranking the steering. Momma says stupid is as stupid does.
