Um.... OK....

I highly recommend replacing the fronts with 4-ply tires when you have a chance, especially if carrying weight out front (snowblower, scoop, etc.). TSC occasionally puts them on sale, so if you're not in a rush, wait until they're cheaper.

6 ply is even better! I did notice that those were Sears tires, but couldn't make out the ply rating on the sidewalls.

Can you post a link to the new tires you bought?

Are those the same rubber caps, or new ones? If they're the old ones, what did you use to clean them?

We're not going to recognize that old tractor when you're done!

Looks great. You're a brave man using sharp tools near hardwood floors and bare feet!

It’s hard to tell really , the day I got these put on we got hit with 5” of snow BUT under all that fresh snow was a layer of solid ice so I had to have my son hang off the back while I plowed through the snow

Have you loaded the tires?

You'll also want to hang weight off the rear to help offset the blower weight. A weight tray and bucket was a standard item (came with the blower), going back at least to the early 90s.

Wheel weights and chains were "recommended" but sold separately.

Not yet , i just grabbed this guy right before the big snow we got i have planned to do all the "things" done over the summer but to be honest id rather have a plow for this like if there was someone close enough id do a straight up trade plow for the blower


Very nice machine Gage! I will be following along :). Keep up the good work!
