I got my 4211 and my 728 out for pictures today.

I got a set of wheel weights, a rear weight, and two doughnut weights from Dan (rokon2813). Thanks again Dan!

I'll start with the blade this winter and then put this on.

I got all the weight because I'm gonna try to go without tire chains, don't wanna mark up the asphault. I may have to get ag tires for it. Let me know what you think.

Nice tractors & attachments! To push/blow any serious snow you will need tire chains(or cable,rubber,plastic type :Y) However I have a blacktop drive & chains don't hurt mine. but I mostly use the blower & dont spin the wheels much...

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate the advice. I've got the tire chains and if traction is an issue I'll put them on and see. I don't think wheel spin will be much of an issue with all the weight I have on it. Last time I used the blower was two winters ago and I didn't have any weight (besides myself :D) and traction was a big issue even with the chains. I have the original 8 horse motor, but it needs to be gone through as it burns oil like a forest fire C. Someday I'll get the original 8 horse back in it and get the seat recovered.

Bar chains, (the kind with claws that stick out) are a lot nicer on asphalt surprisingly. I have a set for one and a round standard set for the other and the claw set slips a lot less than the round ones which makes for almost no marring.
