so i know the hd field trax are used on the john deere x 5 and 7 series some steiners and probably more tractors. but my questions is how good are they? i was looking at a pair on craigslist and called the guy. he said you dont need chains in snow, but he was selling a pair so he might have been throwing the BS my way.

Excellent question, pity I can't answer it for you. Given the experience and helpfulness of the folks here though, I bet someone comes along who can answer it.

I have them on my X728. I don't do any snow work with it but I can say they are great for mowing on hills.

ive heard there better for mowing on inclines then ags because ags slide to the left and right more easily then these tires. and usually getting up a wet or damp hill is a pain with regular turfs. maybe i can get a deal on the tires at my local JD dealer since i have 2 brand new 26 12 12 carlisle multi tracs on JD rims.

Those are about the best all purpose tire you can get IMO. They get excellent traction on hills for mowing without tearing up the turf. I had a chance to try a friends x748 with a set of those on it and that was one impressive tractor. It powered up hills without hesitation and the tires just seemed to stick to the ground. I think they would be better than turfs in sand or mud but not as good as AG's. For snow removal they are a good choice as well. They have a flat profile like a turf which means they work better with chains. The tread pattern is more aggressive and open then turfs. If I was looking for a general purpose tire that's what i would buy.

i think thats what im gonna go for. there was a set on ebay practically brand new that only sold for 96 dollars plus 25 to ship and being they were the 24x12-12's someone got a steal. i would have bidded but i was low on the green stuff at the time.
