I got one at Batteries plus bulbs. Not sure how extensive their stores are nationwide but at least here in SC and GA they seem to be in every mid size and up town. They have an online coupon that made it somewhere like $75. They are branded Duracell, but I can't remember if there Dekka or East Penn that actually makes them.

Picked up a Diehard battery today at Advanced Auto. 10% off plus a $10 Speed Perks discount along with a $25 gift card, came to $60.
Erik and Aron helped get the chains on the “new” turf tires. Pretty rough ride on bare pavement and gravel but I don’t think I’ll get stuck!

I put my plow and chains on last week. 2 wheels weights on loaded tires plus chains should keep the traction. If it doesn’t then I don’t need to go there!

Looks like I’ll be getting some seat time tomorrow afternoon. 6-10” of heavy wet snow forecast for our area of CT. :tractor:

Did you use it Tuesday Bill? Now I know who to blame! I thought it was my fault because I don't have mine mounted yet. I guess we can share the responsibility. John

John, I used it on Wednesday. The snow was wet and heavy and pushed great. The fives driveways I plowed were all concrete so it was easy plowing.

Why remove the cutting edge? Was I supposed to do that? I have a rubber cutting edge on my plow.

The urethane cutting edge was removed to move some soil around. I installed the urethane cutting edge for plowing snow on concrete driveways. The urethane cutting edge is sandwiched between the blade and the steel cutting edge. The urethane cutting edge protrudes about 3/4" below steel cutting edge so that no metal contacts the concrete.

Bill,
I noticed you have 20 cross links whereas the set of chains I have only has 11. Does this help with ride quality?
I never got stuck or lost traction on Saturday but it sure wasn't a smooth ride!

Peter,

Yes, I went with the extra cross links and am happy that I did. At full throttle in 3rd gear, the ride is fairly smooth and I give the turf tires credit for that because cross chains do not get between the lugs as they do on ag tires. Where the chain ends meet, there is a wider gap and you feel it every time that gap is on the bottom (at least on the right side).

Thanks Mike,
For pure grip, Tucker, up in northern Vermont, has the best chains I’ve ever seen.

I do need to have Aron help me fabricate a lightweight cab for the winter months along with adding hydraulic blade angle. Rick Prentice has a sweet setup for both.
