 rear blade shoes

I have a rear blade and a new asphalt drive and need to know if anybody makes "shoes" like truck plows have to float over the driveway to do the snow? I am worried that the heavy blade will tear up the fresh asphalt when snowplowing. Is this a valid concern or will my boomer in the float position with the blade down work fine? Thanks.

I use a JD 1050 with a rear blade backwards and angled on the generally light snows here in VA. I have an LT Rhino 7 footer that isn't too heavy and haven't done asphalt damage yet. The loader works fine in the heaver snows but I've found that the back blade is faster and with practice, backwards aint too bad. Keep in mind I'm not doing this comercially but I do a couple of neighbors' drives and one of then is a steep asphalt one.

Scott, I agree,rear blade is the way to go for snow. If you're still worried about asphalt damage, you can remove the bolt-on type cutting edge on a rear blade and replace it with a strip of UHMW poly plastic. Most truck snowplow manufacturers are offering it as an option for folks who have the same concerns as you. Most welding and metal fab. shops sell the stuff. Maybe even try it on the bottom of your ldr bucket, but you'd have drilling to do.
