    Thank you, my point exactly. How can I be a troll if I own both brands?

I did mine and only had 1 snow event to test them with before I traded off the tractor, but in my mind at least they seemed to be greatly improved from what I remembered from the previous year.. The thread and the theory's about why it works make for interesting reading in any case.

    I bought the tool to do the siping, just haven't got around to it yet. From what I heard, it makes a big difference. Its supposed to warm up next week, maybe I will give it a try then.

    As you know the hotter the tire the better, If you can get them inside a heated building it would sure help.. I did my old kubota last year in Jan, and it was a "warm" day for January, maybe 45 to 50 for the high, I noticed a big difference in the side of the tractor that was in the sun versus the side that was shaded.. Much harder to push the tool thru the tires in the shade.

    those wonderful R-4 tires on snowpack and the incline and there just wasn't enough traction to get up the hill. the lighter JD with the HDAP tire
    had that much more traction under those conditions.

    Carl Bert when the tractors lost traction, were you seeing grass spin up or was it just snow? neither may have been down thru the snow
    into the grass/turf.
    What you said makes absolute sense, and I am sure at this point, most of us agree with that theory. As far as the tires spinning, yes they did dig down through the snow into the lawn. That's why I stopped. As I said in a previous post, if I wasn't concerned about ruining the lawn, the JD would have definitely made it to the top.

    Thanks for the advice. In that case maybe I'll just wait for the warm weather. Problem is I only think about it when there's snow on the ground.

    Good idea, problem is I don't have forks. Although I can think of a dozen times when I wished I did have them. Maybe it's time to get a set. Any suggestion on brand?

    Well I am eager for you to do it and report back! I was able to push the tool thru the cool tires, it was just more effort. You can do it!

    Ha Ha... If that's not Kioti's slogan, they should adopt it

    First time I heard that, it was .......Nothing runs like a Deere unless chased by a kubota.

    But Kioti does sound catchy. Not sure which way it started. I have JDs, but I still get a kick out of that saying.
