'nother tire?? AG's vs Chains?

Recommended Posts

sunrunner
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.

My results exactly. Tire chains are even better when you get the ones with V-Bars.

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!
