Wow! Night and day difference
Very impressed with these chains. They arrived on time and I was surprised on how heavy duty the chains are as well as the V bars. Pretty easy to put on. Put the jack under the tractor and raised the rear tires. Put a rope around the start of the links and onto the tire lugs. Then just rotated the tires by hand, secured the ends and that was pretty much it. I bought the bungee kit as well and they are also very heavy duty.
I have a Kubota L3901. I did have to put spacers on as there was not enough clearance between the tire and inside of the fenders. An added expense, but they give the tractor a bit more stability with a wider tire stance. I bought the spacers through Kubota. No sense messing around with the aftermarket ones. Plus not many options in Ontario Canada.
1)An actual website with pictures, tire sizes, and pricing!
2)Night and day difference with the chains on. Tractor was almost useless last winter even trying to plow a fairly level driveway. Didn't even venture into the woods.
3)We have a bunch of snow and ice right now. I have been cutting trees and skidding logs all day. Would not even attempt last year.
1) The shackles that attach the chains are a lighter aluminum. 2 of them were bent when the chains arrived. No big deal, just put them in the vice to straighten out. Would be nice if they were also a solid steel.
2)The 2 cardboard shipping boxes were ripped down the seams. Surprised the chains didn't come out during shipping.
3) Not really a con because it is expected to have a rougher ride with chains on. On a hard packed driveway, or shoulder of the road you are shaking around pretty good. As soon as you are in the woods it is barely noticeable.
