Any recommendations out there for tire chains for my 812? I've got 23x8.50 - 12 bar lugs now, but need some additional help when there's a bit of ice under the snow when plowing.

Thx!

Go with two link spacing.

If you have a spare set of turfs on rims in the same size, that would work better for chains than Ag treads.

Those look like the same ones that I got for my walk behind too. I'm sure they all come from the same sunny chain factory in China.

The ones for the riders are quite a bit larger and more expensive unfortunately!

I agree with PA RedRider. Chains work better on turf tires. If you don't want the hassle of changing tire/wheels each season, Buy good quality turf tires, " read as expensive" Then add chains. Deflate the tire and install the chains as tight as you can. You should end up with some extra links. Do not cut them off as it will make re-installing them again hard. Just use a plastic wire tie so the ends don't whip around to catch something. Some chain sets come with tensioners, which are just 4 springs attached to a ring. Then re-inflate the tire. Ballast in the tire also helps. But you should use tubes. I use blue windshield washer fluid. But there are other ballasts that can be used. Of course wheel weights also help. I don't find chains tearing up the grass when I mow, but my lawn is not a putting green.

+1 to all of that

A bungee cord looped back and forth serves as a poor man's tensioner.

You really do not want to lose a chain in the snow. More so if your using a blower. If you don't realize you lost it, or can't find it, the blower will.
