You might want a set of chains for winter on the turfs?

I will see how the AG's do in snow,  we don't get a tons of snow here, (at least we haven't in the past years) I already have chains for the turfs, but I like the weight of the AG's since I just fluid filled them and added 2 pairs of wheel weights.

Although, I'll keep the turfs and chains handy just in case.

When is bought my ford it had one Ag year old. I replaced the other one. It was helpless w/o chains on snow and ice.
It came with chains and does pretty well with chains.
I think the chains would do better on turfs, because they would not drop into the lug depressiosns.

A friend of mine has a Ford 601 Work Master, he put chains on it and he said it made it worse because the chain fell between the lugs and turned his tires into slicks.

Most of our snow comes when the ground is just barely frozen, in the years past the AG tires just dig down to the dirt/mud and they go pretty good. I will definitely have my turf tires with chains on waiting in case I need them.

I will also have my Bolens HT23 with R4 tires, chains and push blade. That is my plan B for pulling out my Kubota! :smilewink:
