'nother tire?? AG's vs Chains?

Recommended Posts

Thanks to "Biggie" for an engine:D, I now have a 6126 for snow-throwing and another 6216 for plowing/mowing - My 6218 will be put on rototilling and grading duty - Should I get a set of AG's for the plowing 6216 in the winter and put them on the 6218 for the summer? or buy a set of chains & weights? My stone/dirt driveway is done on the highest shoe setting, so I do get some ice patches(no traction at time). Which I sand with a pull behind spreader - Would AG's or chains be better in this situation? or both??:)

I say a pair of Ags should do you good. Either the Carlie Tru=power or if your willing to spend a little more and get the Firestones. Haven't run the Tru-Powers on the 4040 in snow so not sure how they do, but so far these Firestones have kept me from putting chains on this year, plowing on hard snowpack.

I put a set of Goodyear ag's on my 712H, with a snowblade. I think it compared favorably to a set of chains. We had about 8-9" of snow yesterday, never got stuck or hung up. Even going into "fresh" snow.

Have a 185 Allis (74 HP ag tractor). Of coarse, it has AG tires. However, when I put chains on it in the winter it does things with the chains you wouldn't even think of without. I'm a chain man!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
