if you like that asphalt drive way I would take the chains off till you absolutely need them...I dont think that you want to mark that baby up with tire chains.
Hi Cornhusker,
Thanks for the concern. This was a big issue for me as I had just had the driveway widened for the RV and resealed. I'm actually very impressed with the driveway. These pics are shortly after delivery. I had driven the X324 all over the driveway to check the maneuverability with the blower attached and the chains left no marks anywhere. The next time it sees the driveway will be for snow removal.

Good looking setup. Yes, you could probably put 2 more suitcase weights on your tractor because you have the K58 tranny. As long as you don't spin like crazy, you shouldn't mark up your driveway. You will get to know your limit and then you can stop, back up and try again. I have been blowing my asphalt driveway for 8 years now with no bad marking that I can notice plus I have a slight slope.

I was hoping with my considerable bulk :)sidelaugh) I wouldn't need more weight. My dealer did put the x500 series bracket on so there is room for 2 more.

Great set up! Hope you get to see some snow! Only a couple snow falls here so far in PEI but none of it stayed. I may be able to cut the grass one more time :)

Very nice setup. I sure like the improvements made to the JD wheather enclosure. As long as you don't spin the chained up tires, you should be okay on the blacktop.
Before I added more weight to my setup last year I spun the chained up tires on my cement drive working on a five foot drift and left a few marks. I also have blacktop and have never damaged it with chains in nine years. When possible, it's nice to have a thing coating of compacted snow on the surface. The metal contact parts last longer.

Happy snow removal to you!

Hi mktobob,
This is I think a new cab I got thru my dealer from rungreen.com, got the link from stladrill :)thanku: steph) who I think got it from another mtf poster ( this is a great forum). It is not the one sold thru the deere website. When all was said and done it was only about thirty $$ more than the 3 sided weather enclosere deere sells but you also have to buy a rear weight bracket.

That is a great looking setup. I don't know if you've ever blown snow on that rig without a cab, but if you have done it even once you will appreciate the cab oh so much more! I wouldn't sweat the chain marks. After all, its a driveway, not your hardwood living room.

P.S. It looks cool from the rear, kinda like the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
