[img]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/perry71/sep06001.jpg[/img] got my new front tires on, and also got a chance today to try out my new to me plow. boy them front tires make a heck of a difference. now i need to get some matching rears. found some rears at tucker tire for $70.00 a pair. now i wonder if i will need tire chains to plow snow this year??.

Nice looking tires..Bet they will not slip much in the snow.. You may not need chains..It depends on how clean you scrape the snow I think...I have read where people use ag tires with no chains..I tried it and was ok until I got a snow pack build-up..Then it was like I was on ice so on went the chains..I could do ok on flat ground but I have a fairly steep hill to get out of the barn and up to the main driveway..I don't like to scrape to low as I end up with a gravel yard instead of a gravel drive, LOL

Looks like a good rig. Usually when using a moldboard plow, you only have duals on the landside. I would think the extra wheel on the other side would prevent the tractor from riding in the furrow as it should.

its a front shock/fork from a honda spree scooter. they fit perfect, nice and snug into lift rod. i just have to drill a hole for pin in the fork rod so it will stay straight. i use this setup with a chain and hook to tow dead tractors around the yard. got the head lights from a nice original landlord 101 i found on ebay. payed a $100 for it. it runs like a champ also. heres a pic of the 101 sittin next to the allis i paid to much for.

Nice original headlights and the tractor is not in bad shape either. I like your lift bar. Is it a bicycle fork?
