For those of you that are plowing with your machines, would you mind showing me some of the home made weights you are using and how you are mounting them?? Also how much weight do you use??
I use loaded wheels on my 2305 during off-season (winter) snow plowing duty.... no extra weights other than that.
Back when I had my L120, I used only chains and loaded wheels for snow plowing... no extra weight.
Never had a problem... but my driveway is flat.
Yes it would spin the back wheels a bit here and there... but all that it would mean, is that I had to approach the snow from a different angle, or do something else creative. I never had to get the tractor unstuck, but then again, I would not get myself into trouble either, by driving the thing into a soggy ditch, and expect it to pull me out up a 45 degree muddy bank....
Note that I would even drive onto my frozen pond, and plow the snow off of it as well... no weights other than filled tires... plus chains.... no problem.... just had to keep the work-load on the tractor only when going straight, to have both wheels turning through the diff...
