I need to get chains for my Kubota tractor, so that I can use it for blowing and plowing snow this winter. Any recommendations on type of chains, should chains gp on all four wheels, and a source to purchase? Thanks.

ALWAYS run 4 chains, otherwise you could have driveline problems, you change the diameter of the tire with chains, besides slipping front, gripping rear (or vice-versa) doesn't do any good either.

I was always told never to run chains on a MFWD tractor?? Possible damage to front diff and driveline? Better to have in front slip in the long run. I could be wrong?

Unless you drive around with your foot on the diff. lock pedal the differential will do as the name suggests and equalize the drive load, it CANNOT however change the relationship/gearing between front and rear.........

Sorry, I meant I heard it was bad to chain up the front, but OK for the rear only. But under no circumstances should chains be on the front due to drivetrain problems on the front.

I've got a Cub Cadet 7260 that I bought about a year ago. After talking to several fellows in my local area about running chains on a FWA tractor such as mine, I ran chains on the front of mine all last winter. It worked GREAT! I could steer it while plowing with my back blade angled to one side, something I was having a hard time doing before the chains. I'm using old dump truck chains that I made up to fit my tractor. I got them for nothing from the guys at the town garage. They are glad to get rid of them, and if any of you have priced tire chains lately, you know they are real expensive. All I bought was a pair of tire chain pliers from Gemplers to make them up. Worked great! As far as the concerns some folks have about changing the outside diameter of the tires because of the chains, don't be. Because the cross chains are spaced about every 6 inches apart, and they are a little loose by design, it is really not any different than running your tires over a small bump in the road. Several friends of mine have also gone to the same system as I, all with the same results.

Thanks ed, I think I might give it a go on my tractor. I have chains for the rear and as you said I have problems with the front sliding thus no steering.

I have a JD670/4WD and have run chains on all for tires for four years. They are one of the best investments I have made and the tractor is almost unstoppable. I put them on when the snow flies and take them off when I stop plowing (about 7 months). Never had any problems. I got them at our local JD dealer and the fit perfect, although the do take about 45 minutes to install, start to finish. Hope this helps.
