Well we got around 6" of snow, so put the snow chains on. It is night and day between what it does with and without chains. Drove right over places that were solid ice and never stopped, just kept on going. Man Cubs can push A LOT of snow.

Now the bad news is the pump is still leaking. Wondering if the shaft isn't turned down to much.

Glad to hear your chains made all the difference. Yes, a Cub can push a lot of snow.

Yup, been using chains for years. Always did ok in snow without them but a layer of ice under it is another story. Now I put the chains on when it starts getting cold every winter. Much easier to jack up a wheel and put chains on it in shed with a radiant heater keeping me warm than to carry them up to where tractor is stuck and try to get them on while setting on a sheet of ice. :lol:
