I took the 140 out to play  work.  2 weeks ago I was plowing the garden, at the last moment before a rain and ice storm was due to arrive.  I got home from work and hooked up the plow...it was dark, but had enough light from the tractor and the lights in the neighborhood....

  Finally had some snow to plow today, so I hooked up the rear blade and gave that a shot.  Those atv tires don't need chains!  they work fine by themselves!

Nice video!

 

Ive been using atv lugs a couple years now, dirt and snow, I like them 'alot' better than chains ;)https://www.dropbox....qml/Col_018.JPG

I'm sure those ATV tires work great in the garden and in loose snow. On ice, chains will be better IME. I've had AG and Industrial tires on my tractors and both are useless on smooth ice without chains.

I used chains on turfs for over 20 yrs until I tried the atv lugs a couple years ago, they are alot softer rubber so its nothing like an ag or implement tire.

 

Last two winters I still had a Cub 1862 with a snowblower on chained turfs, and also my Columbia 960 with a 54" blade on the atv lugs....the 960 could push through deeper snow faster than the Cub with a blower, granted the 960 is a bit heavier overall but the differance was quite surprising at first. The atv's ride nice, dont damage the lawn. and dont need chains...imo that makes them the best choice for a tractor that needs alot of traction, chains do work well but they can be a pita at times also
