Shortening the top link or turning the blade backwards works ok for short driveways, light powder snow, or small amounts of the heavy wet stuff that usually falls in VA. For deep snow on a long driveway I found it works much better to extend my top link so the blade will lift and roll snow off the edge of the drive. Our driveway is fairly level, so I just set the stop on the touch control so the blade stops with the edge about 1" off the driveway. The 2N has a Zane Thang so it also has position control. A set of skid plates might work better. Spraying the blade down with some cheap furniture wax from the Dollar Store helps keep snow from sticking. If you have a heated barn or garage the tractor will start easier, but the blade will be warm. Snow/ice will stick like glue to a nice warm blade that cools while plowing.
