small bites, heavy snow will stop you, it's like trying to push mud.
plowing across the drive at first works
we got 18" of heavy snow,
When it's this deep, (I have front and rear blades)
I have to zig-zag plow to get out.
once I make it down the driveway, I then
plow crossways, across the driveway
6' at a time to clear it.
after breaking it up, I clean up lengthwise with a few passes.
..\ ....\ ../
I have chains and filled tires
angling the blade helps in lighter snow,
but when it is heavy and deep, the blade will just turn the tractor sideways.
zig-zagging is then the only way.
this storm, the z-z angles were much steeper than above.
