Using the blade backwards works ok for a little snow or small area, but when plowing deep snow from a long driveway the curve of the blade needs to be used with the top link extended and blade angled to lift and roll snow to the side. With a 9N, unless you've added a position control device, the only way to keep the blade from digging gravel is a set of skid shoes. Even with position control, a set of skid shoes allows just dropping the blade and plowing. No matter which way the blade is turned, the heavy wet snow we often get in central VA will still pick up some gravel, so I try to plow just wide enough to get the cars out. When it melts I scrape the gravel back to the middle of the driveway. I just sprayed my blades with a product that is supposed to help keep snow from sticking, but we haven't had a significant enough snowfall to test that yet.
