did not steer well with the big tires on the front, it was easier to use it like a bulldozer locking a brake up to turn it

Well long time no see guys!! I do actually have a manual for these tracks. A gentleman came by two winters ago looking to copy some brackets and gave me a copy of the directions that came with his Cub. I don’t have a way to scan them at home but I can tomorrow at work. I have a bunch of pics and vids of mine back when I got them. They are a lot of fun.

Like snow chains to the second power . i have no experience in snow , but too much experience in swamp mud . i would think they would really do well here , within obvious limitations , as all things have . coppersmythe............................................Super cool

Why all the weights? Isn't the point of the tracks to spread out the weight over a larger area? This would let you get into softer areas and still stay on top, but when adding the weights, the pounds per square inch creep upward.

Sorry for taking so long but I now have the manual scanned in pdf. If someone wants a copy just shoot me an email at davewilesjr@gmail.com with Arps tracks in the subject line and Ill be happy to send a copy to ya.

And all the weights well why not I was just having fun when using the land plow and it would just sit there and spin without weight. Plus I plowed my driveway in the winter and without the weight it was useless for me. But someday I would like to have it light weight and mess around with it. Maybe when my boy is older and can do the work!!!
