Have to say, unless you're a geek for seat time, an 8N with a back blade is no match for a 600' driveway, wet or dry. A front mounted truck plow is 80% faster and so much less effort. I have an old F250 and I race up the drive, do the mailbox in 1 swipe, slam the end of the driveway, then come back down, and park it. I then take the 8N and do up by the garage, etc. The truck stinks to turn around, in and out, and all that fine work, you run the battery down fast. The 8N is great for yanking snow from the garage area, and putting it into a pile. Then I back up and push it all.
I did the backward thing for 5 years, but the truck, an old beat up Ford F250 that wasn't running (got it free, with full 7' plow), is so much more efficiient. Hek, I even plowed our street since the county takes a day to get to it...
