I have a set of V61s on the Electric Massey, was hoping to try them out this yr. plowing snow but not enough snow came to plow the driveway even once.
I did find that they grip better than the turfs that were on it, the ridges catch better but on smooth ice no difference. On Grass they grip better and don't tear up the lawn, as was said by others.
So far I like them.

Finally got caught up enough to start cleaning up the shop. While rummaging through a corner I hadn't touched in a couple of years because the Wisconsin AENL was in the way I found a pair of Nanco tires I bought at an auction a few years ago for $11 if my memory is correct.. Brand new 16 X 6.50-8s mounted on junk rims. So the price is right and they will fit and do the job for now.

The ones on the front of the JD140 picked up a bunch of grass while doing the first mow today.

Thanks for the replies.

Hey guys from what I have heard about the smaller size V61's, is that they are a metric size tire and that is why you need to run tubes in them.
