    This info came from a biased source, my dad, who owned IH equipment, but I expect it was true at the time. My uncle was a green man. I do recall the green parts were considerably more expensive. But that could have been due to the local dealers.
    I respectfully disagree...
    A 2wd pick up truck needs additional weight placed in the bed in order to get traction going up a slick hill...
    4wd trucks go good in the snow due to the front wheels pulling and the additional weight placed over the drive wheels help gain traction...
    Another reason front wheel drive cars do better in the snow than rear wheel drive cars...

    If the OP's slope was indeed "30^" I doubt there'd be that much weight/traction on front wheels, anyway. Front wheel drive can lose some of its traction advantage going up steep inclines, esp so when center of gravity is tractor-high vs car-low.

    I'll always believe that tractor color is as important as ... hair color & I'll stand behind Carl 'til he gets a blue one. (5 pages to go, paisano...)

    You think 2500# is a lot of weight for an 18' trailer? I thought it was pretty average.
    The best tires for shallow snow on grass vs the worst. Well, actual knobbys are probably the best.

    Naw, this is just a continuation of the same old color pissing match. The problem is JD owners are always so insecure because they feel sheepish deep inside for paying so much more for just a color.

    The longest running stupid post ever. The poor OP was simply reporting an experience.

    I have a john deere blanket on the couch in the shop office.

    Carl should have, and quite possibly did, know what he was starting. Why pity him ?

    thank you for posting that...

    c'mon we can only talk about piston ring tolerances only so long.
    And it is easy to unsubscribe, but this thread certainly does have its humor.
