If all that you have is a rear blade then you have no choice but to keep pushing until you get the area cleared. I used a rear blade on an 8N to clear snow for 20 years. It works but can be difficult. Reverse in an N tractor is too fast and it is difficult to control steering backwards. I finally got a front mounted blade. Pushing snow forward with a N tractor is a lot easier than pushing it backwards. However, deep heavy snow is still difficult to clear. I would suggest that you look for a front mounted blade.

That's what I was trying to do. I don't mind (yet) looking & driving backwards. I guess I just over-loaded this N. It was one of those heavy non-stop 10" snows with rain towards the end that crusted the top. Couldn't see plowing 1/2 way through the storm.
