using the 312-8 to spread some driveway gravel with the blade and something interesting happened. a tire chain snapped a crosslink came around twisted up some sheetmetal and the rear fender then ripped a slice through of the fuel tank. it all happened in about 1/10 of a second so no reaction time. check your chains once in a while i guess ??
So I've never used chains, but I have a set, new in the box, but old, of the correct size, 4-link, for my 416-H I went to put them on for some extra traction for pulling chores around the yard.... How loose should they be without using anything to snug them? I put them on and they were really loose! Tires are fully inflated, so I'm not too sure whether they are the right chains, or maybe mis-packaged? Any advice? Thanks in advance!
There's another thread on here talking about tires used in snow removal, Mike (Sparky) mentioned that the turf tires work better. That threw me for a loop but you guys know better than me, I haven't used any of this equipment yet. I have a steep hill that comes up to my place and I have chains but I would rather not use them if possible,(unless there is ice underneath I will have no choice). The drive and lot is all blacktop. I will be puting a snow blower on one tractor and a plow on another. I also have a few sets of 50lb each weights, and some 20lb each front weights. What have you guys found to be the best combination to use?
