    Tires...tires...tires

    Well, we're are having a 5-7" snow event at my place...softy, fluffy snow and my first go 'round with the 1025r and 54" plow. It has been said a Bizillion times before on this forum but I thought a stone driveway might add more traction on my turf tires and just under 525lbs of ballast.....BWAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! Let's say I'll be buying chains on Monday Morning. Sliding into turns no es bueno! This is powder...imagine ice????

    My two words of the day......TIRE CHAINS!


    A BELIEVER!!

    My 4WD 650 will go nowhere with turf tires,,,
    here is a pic of the tractor stopped by the snow,, (it did back out, barely)



    Add 90 pounds of 2-link chains, it pulls a 7 foot landscape rake pretty good,,,
    Not perfect, but, pretty good.



    I have front chains for it,, but, I am not that desperate,,, YET!!

    I guess the plow makes all the difference. With a full ballast box, turfs and my flat asphalt driveway, I had no traction issues. But I have a snowblower.

    well -i'm glad ur seeing the light now--and putting ur CHAINS on. it could be the type of stone u have in ur driveway causing the lack of traction- hard to tell from here while ur getting chains-get a set with the ice cleats on the cross chain-ok. a little more money for them, but they will bite a LOT MORE-than just plain cross chain will. have fun-and good luck.

    on frozen ground, snow, or ice...there is nothing that gets more traction than tire chains, period.

    I'd make sure and get a good set of 2-link spaced chains.

    You will NOT regret it. My 316 has 2wd, old Goodyear turf tires, and chains, and it's almost unstoppable.

    In the words of somone else.

    Duh.

    Turfs and chains is the best winter traction around here. Add obscene amounts of weight and go anywhere.
