Traction hasn't been an issue (so far). I have tire chains and 60 lbs of weight blocks for the rear end. The reason I know is that I had a 46" snowblower, but it needs a major rebuild, and never had any traction issues with the F935. But the quad statement is interesting, might just spend some time looking around for pricing on one.You might want to rethink that, I've got a F932(same unit but with a gas motor) I tried to use a brush on mine to clear snow and just couldn't get enough traction. The implements for these tractors are pricey. You could buy a quad with a plow for the same money and get better results.
