I have seen this pic a few times now, I think it is a great comparison, but one other item I would also consider is that the HDAP is very soft, 4 ply tire and if you keep the inflation low the total diameter difference versus those turfs is less than the measurements would indicate as the tires flatten considerably when in use, fully weighted down.

IIRC the HDAP Field Trax in 24x12x12 is a 2 ply tire.

The HDAP All Trail in 23x10.5x12 is a 4 ply tire

I dont know about the HDAPs as I havent used them. But I can guarantee you there is no way I could use turfs without chains and blow snow. I would spend as much time pulling the tractor out as I do blowing snow.

I know there are a lot of guys moving snow with deflated Ag's.

Now if it was a more normal winter and had a flat drive like some people I am sure I could run turfs with no chains and blow. But thats not the case for me. Chains are required.

Next winter should be a challenge. We will be in our new house by then and we have what will be a paved driveway coming off cul-de-sac and it drifts terrible in area where my truck is sitting.

On another note, hope no one is going to have deck troubles with taller tires. Seems my turfs are pretty close to deck with stock height??

Ditto... turfs without chains blowing snow is slipperier than snot on a peeled onion.

Tried Carlisle AGs and they were underwhelming at any inflation pressure.

HDAPS work nicely in snow as long as you have sufficient weight, but I've had total success using turfs with 2 link chains. Dif lock is a nice ace in the hole but haven't needed it so far.

I've been depending on my dif-lock to keep me straighter plowing snow uphill this winter with my near baldy front turfs. It helps a great deal when angling heavy snow. I promised myself I'll have new tires befor next winter!

Is there any real difference between the "HD Field Trax" and "All Trail" models? Use would be snow blowing and mowing. Only real difference that I have seen is the ply level (although I am not sure what this means)...although how does the ply level compare to stock turf tires? I assume one is better than the other???? Help!

Since neither comes in all sizes you get the size you need and be happy. They are very similar in design and competence. If you use 24x12x12 you get Field Trax and if you use 23x10.5x12 you get All Trail.

There are 2 ply and 4 ply turf tires. Plain and simple it's the number of wraps of rubber in the casing. 2 ply gives a more supple ride but is more susceptible to punctures than a 4 ply. Usually OEM tires are 2 ply cause they cost less.

I run Field Trax 24x12x12 @ 6 psi all year round and in the snow with blower, but I have a set of the OEM X500 turf tires with chains in the back of the garage just in case.

John Deere... new $98 each in your choice of yellow or yellow. You dealer might have a used pair.

You might luck out on Craigslist or eBay or post a WTB in the For Sale & Wanted to Buy forum.
