Any pics with plow and maybe a video pushing snow?

My driveway is quite steep and want to make sure it will handle pushing upwards

Thanks

What degree are your hills and does it push it uphill?
What is your definition of " too deep "

My Can Am is running out of juice uphill with 10" of wet heavy white stuff

Will the argo out perform that or same tune?

Thanks

Oof, plowing10" of heavy wet snow uphill is asking for trouble for anything. It's a 7' plow so that is a lot to push in one pass. If I could I would plow it before it got that deep, but if not I would have to take bites and push it to the side. The Argo has more momentum and traction than the can am, but is not immune to the laws of physics. My hills are around 15 degrees.

Running out of Juice or Traction? I'd think it would run out of traction first, no?

Maybe it is time for a blower?

Yup traction,

The problem is my driveway goes downhill and uphill sort of a " V " shape and have ditches on both side and can't tell you how many times I ended up sideways or inside the ditch when I come downhill with speed and hit the uphill portion

I've looked at the ATV snowblowers, but they don't seem to clean all the way to the blacktop , and I don't feel like switching from blower to plow to finish the job

Looking for a good all in one solution, short of a pick up with a commercial plow lol
