Yeah, we got about 4Ē from that storm but itís slowly going away.
A clean blade with a fresh coat of smooth paint will help. When I had an angle blade Iíd spray Pledge or Pam on it before pushing wet snow and both seemed to help. Iíve seen blade liners that are made of some sort of slippery plastic (maybe in the Northern Tool catalog?). Iíll bet they work good but as I remember they were very pricey. Might be cheaper than the prep and painting of your blade though and work better in the long run.
Yo Doc, I got curious so I looked it up. Northern has them in red and yellow for cheaper than I remember. The catalog says $39.99 but their web catalog says $44.99. They come in yellow or red and would be plenty for doing your quad blade. You can find a descripton or order them here.
