Well, those new CST Ancla tires came through with flying colors for me just a bit ago.

I bought 15 plastic pallets the other day, and needed them off of the F150 so I can go get the Brinly plow.

Now, not being one to work any harder than I have to, I decided to get them off the truck and on to the ground, and then push them to where I wanted them with the FEL on CloudBurst IV.

Worked better than I had expected, with no wheel spin anywhere :D

Here's the stack of pallets. Not sure about the top two, but the others weigh in at 19# each so the whole stack is 250#+

Even as aggressive as the Anclas are, they didn't leave much of a foot print on any area that has decent drainage, even as wet as it's been here all fall/winter.

Of course in the REALLY soggy areas, they did leave more of a track, but with a tiller and 220# of Rim Guard putting weight on the rear I really don't think it's unexpected.

Shucks at only 160#, even I leave a bit of a track in the same area :D

Here's a couple of rear shots. Note that the Anclas 'self clean' very well.

Are they ATV tires? I really like the looks of them! Have you moved any snow with them yet? if yes how did they perform.

Yes they are ATV tires.

Only had one day to move snow so far this year, and the 1886 had a flat front tire :sensored:

So I used CloudBurst III, a 1256 with the Snowcaster.

However, considering how well they did pushing the pallets, I'm pretty sure that they will work just fine for snow removal.

Glad they are working for you but don't wish for snow, no matter how much fun it is to push. This has been a great winter here in Indiana. Colorado got 6 feet in the mountains the other day, hope it stays there.
