Tires for snow plowing

Recommended Posts

MAWHguy2019

Of course, I checked everything on the Horse prior to the upcoming storm except the tires. As I was topping off the tires for air I found one tire has a puncture. It is patched for now but with the cracking/rot the two rear tires need to be replaced.

 

This WH only plows snow and takes little ones for tractor cart rides on the street. I do not use chains as I want to keep my driveway in good shape. Typically, when I plow, it is just the heavy wet slop (less than 2-3 inches) or driveway scrape-down after the blower has gone through. My driveway has a slight decline to the street and is big enough for four cars.

 

Was thinking of getting turf tires but wanted to get some opinions. 

 

Turf?

Ag?

ATV?

 

Thanks folks.

This is one of those subjects like what kind of oil do you like that there's going to be as many different answers as there is people who post.

 

We all have different yards. We all have different tractors. We all have different needs.

 

 

So keeping in mind you don't want to scar up your yard my best advice would be to get a set of turf tires. Fluid fill them with Rimguard. Then get some of those rubber chains. I don't have personal experience with them but lots on this site do...

I have had good luck with Turf Tires, wheel weights and chains on 2 different driveways on 2 different tractors, 1 with a flat hot top driveway with a 312-8 and 48'' plow and used a 44'' 2 stage blower with a 520-H on both hot top and a gravel driveway with a slight incline and have been impressed with those results. Both driveways were 150' with large parking at the ends. And if that didn't cut it I would get out the larger tractors as a backup on those Nor ' easter  storms and have some  real FUN !   Good Luck with your decision.

We only get wet snow here in North Carolina and I have All Trails II and they do great in wet snow.

Just plowed our driveway. Had 6 inches of very heavy wet snow. Kenda turfs on back fulla rim guard. Turfs on front with cast iron weight. I have cast irons for the back but don't need them with this set up. Never have run any chains on blacktop and as you can see have an incline towards road. This set up works very well for me. I could definitely weight up more, but I don't need to. My vote on blacktop is good turf with added weight

In Iowa with the ice storms and blizzards that follow If you want to stay alive in the rural areas like I live in you either have a couple of 520H's with rear tire chains  and a dozer blade and the other with chains and a snow thrower with a new chain and gears all tuned up in June to be ready when Hell freezes over........

That's just my experience.........:eusa-whistle:

Great feedback everyone. Thanks for your ideas. 

 

Leaning toward Sparky's tire setup. Those look great!
