I'm getting ready to do my fall maintenance to the CS (disassemble, clean, lube, change fluids, reassemble) and convert it to a snow machine. I've got an LED light bar on order to mount on the ROPS (details to follow) as well as a wiring kit.
I've been going back and forth whether to install tire chains or not. With 4WD and using the back hoe as ballast & weight for the SB50 snowblower (who needs beet juice in the tires when you have a 750 pound weight well past the axle) so I was thinking that chains might not be necessary. After all, the snowblower clears right down to the black top. But after some thought I figured, "why not install chains, they can be useful if there's an ice storm prior to a snow storm."
Then I noticed this:
There is about 1/2" - maybe 5/8" - of clearance between the tire and the backhoe mount frame. I just don't think the chains will clear the gap. Has anyone on the forum installed chains on a CS2410? Is it possible to bias the chains towards the outside so the buckles ride more towards the wider part of the gap?
