Chains n' studs n' plow... eh Boy.

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I have a 2000 Trailboss 325 2x4. In years past I've always put rear chains on it to help with some of the thaw/freeze that happens during snow plowing season. Chains work well when I remain on concrete but a frozen pond is another issue. Last year I decided to plow the adjacent pond for ice skating. Having the plow blade on the ice pretty much prevents me from anything but very wide turns.

Any tips on plowing a frozen pond? Would chains or studs on the front tires help at all? How much of a noticeable difference? I'm also working on a Zamboni mod so impressions from chains or studs won't impact skating.

Thanks.

i have a 400ex and with tire chains it will go any where no matter how deep the snow or how thick the ice...... I would use the chains in my expirience they work much better

studs would work great on the ice but would pull out on rough surfaces... if you had an extra set of tires an wheels for the front it would work great.. chains will akso work on the ice but not as well as the studs .. you can try the chains and see how it does and it would not damage the tires trying them and would be cheaper than extra tires and wheels with studs in them ... cheap screw in studs can and will pull out on rough pavement ... but the good expensive one's would do alot better ...

i always used chains... the snow in that part of the country is heavy and wet so i would have a path started so i could take a good run at it before i put the blade down. i was always in 4 too, i don't know how easy it'll be in just 2, but try it ....

Studs would not pull out.

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I need chains for my MudPro 700. It has the Outlaw 28x12x12's on it. I live in Alaska and the local dealers are telling me they don't make chains that big. It gets icy so I need chains. Suggestions?
      Thanks,
      Glenn
