I'm just a svelte 230, and I run 252 on the rear in suitcases, 75 plastic weight on each rear wheel, loaded ags at another 65 lbs/wheel, and I am still going to buy a set of 2-link chains before winter hits.I'd just hate to see you in the middle of a snowstorm without enough weight.
For :crybaby: crying out loud DDogg he weighs 300 pounds!! maybe the tractor would need more weight,,,,,,,,,,:lalala:
I was wondering what Helium in the tires would do ??:banghead3
:MTF_wel2:Hey guys, I'm going to buy a used snowthrower for a 425 john deere, can I use it without wheel weights and chains. I'm about 300 lbs and am sitting right over the rear wheels. Thanks
I tried that, did OK during the first snow storm last season, but it kept getting stuck during the second storm (slipped on my side trying to pull the tractor back, I hurt for weeks afterwards). I rushed out right before the 3rd storm of the season and was able to get my hands on the last set of chains and that was a life saver for the 3rd and 4th snow storms of the season.:MTF_wel: I'd say it won't hurt to try. If you find out you need more traction you can always add weight and chains later.
