    Default Re: Which tire chain style?

    Duos will shake you out of the cab. I have 2 link V-bar ladders and pulled them off because of vibration going down the road. If you were just plowing and working around the yard thay would be fine. I just deal with the frontend pushing or sliding. The rears are chained and I have no problem with traction. I may try standard 2 link ladders on the front but have not got there yet. CJ

I was hoping just chaining the front end would be adequate as I can't afford rear chains right now. But I don't want to damage the front end either.
    One thing you might consider is a pull-type rear blower.

    I have never driven a machine with duo grips so can't compare. The one time I had mine out on the town road the road was a mass or frozen ruts so running in high gear was not an option. I am sure they are a world better then the ring stye Canadian chains I had on my previous tractor. Those were like riding on an eight sided solid wheel.

    I have Duo-grips on the rear and 4-link with V-bar on the front. Works well for me, the ride's a bit rough on hard stuff but fine on snowpack and irrelevant at the speeds I use for blowing.

    Not that it makes much of a difference but it looks like you have the Tellesfdal Super chains. The importer is over in NH. I got the exact same chains from a Kubota dealer up near Irasburg. The salesman passes through the area once a week and will drop them off to the dealer for free. If you ever need a part you should be able to get it real easy.

    They very well could be. I bought them used without tags or instructions. As you say though not much difference. Shoppers should check them both for price etc.

    I don't know if it's just the New England area or wider but having the salesman drop them off made the difference. If I remember correctly the crate weighed over 200lbs.
