Snow plow on new asphalt

How long should you wait before using a snow plow on a newly paved asphalt driveway?

A plow on a pick up truck, not the big ones they use for the highways of course :p

Can take up to a year to cure depending on weather. If you want to play it safe I would say 6 months. At the minimum I would recommend 30 days. Where do you live?

Right before using your plow for the first time, take a hammer and gently hit the asphalt to see how much of a dent you make. This should give you an idea of how much 'scratching' of the asphalt your plow might do.
