This must be the standard dealer **advice**. Mine told me the same thing about my 2720. No chains, no weights. HAH. I loaded all four wheels and I have 2-link chains on all four tires. Even with the couple inches of snow we got last week I was spinning my rear tires on the driveway slope. Dropping it into 4WD got things going again. I have a 54" blower on the front and a 60" blade on the rear. Granted I'm probably unloading the rear slightly when the blower is raised off the ground.

I've been plowing and blowing for a lot of years. You can pretty much never have too much weight or too much traction. :thumbup1gif:
I run rear chains year round and fronts when it's icy. Running too much weight in the rear will lessen the steering ability. I like to keep the same weight ratio front to back with my plow blade off the ground. On our property and location you ain't plowing snow without chains. These little lite tractors do not have enough traction without chains.
