Cool video :thumbs: Your Simplicity looks to be doing a very good job on the snow. It sure beats a shovel!

Thank you for posting the video. I am impressed. You don't have any external wheel weights or chains on either. Do you have the tires loaded? Like Mike said it definitely beats a shovel plus it is fun since you get to play with a classic piece of machinery. :thumbs:

Thanks guys. It does a heck of a job...the tires are loaded, and this model is basically a live axle, or posi-trac when moving forward. There are ratchets in the hubs that allow 1 wheel to spin faster than the other for turning, yet it locks the 2 together when the wheel speed is the same.
