    Default Tire chains GC2610

    I was out snow blowing with my Gc2610 and noticed some loss of traction with the r4 tires. Do chains make a big difference and if so what brand does anybody reccommend?

    Did a little research and the only ones available for the 26x12-12 size seem to be the twisted link and v bar. V bar seems too aggresive for a black top driveway. How does the twisted link perform? I searched tirechains.com. I guess you would want chains on all 4 tires.

    I picked up a set 2 winters ago for my gc2610 at my local NAPA store. They had to order them and they were backordered from the factory, but they eventually came and are great. I only put them on the rear, but I can go anywhere in 2wd.

    I have a steep paved driveway, and only have chains on the rear tires. I have loaded turf tires and 2 link ladder chains.

    Here is a link to Tire Chains . com

    tractor tire chains for farm tractors

    I have the 2 link ladder chains on all four tires because of the 5 months of ice on my driveway. I could do without them, but they really help a lot with traction and steering, good luck, KC

    I picked up the a set the day I bought my GC2600 at a yard sale for $50. I was plowing my steep dirt drive the other day spinning all over the place. I put the chains on the rear and was able to plow in 2wd. It really is amazing how much they help. (my tires are also loaded)
