    lugs do nothing on ice for traction and regular chains fall mostly though the lugs

    you need diamond pattern chains for lugs

    0304171738.jpg0309161711a.jpgI have deestones 23-10.50-12's on my 318 and 26-12-12 tru-powers on my 140. I like them both, but as you can tell, the 140's are much bigger. I run single link chains on the 318 with the blade on the front, and they seem to work great for dirt pushing and snow. I don't have any pavement to run on, only gravel and dirt, so that makes a difference. I have never had my chains fall off, and they seem to grab good in dirt.

    I think chains work better on the Deestones because the V is more pronounced, I've had chains on both styles and they do work better on the Deestones.

    I'm really happy with mine, I went with deestone AGS in the back (6ply) and deestone smooth ribs in the front. They have very good traction and are slow to wear and very cost effective.

    One good thing about Deestones, if you tend to run the rear wheels in the narrow setup you hand run a tiller and Brinly hitch, Trupowers tread face is little too wide to run them narrow.

    That was something I was concerned about. I saw the 7" wide wheels had more backspacing, and wasn't sure if they had enough room on the narrow mount. Kinda figured I'd wait and see. I have some faith in mother Deere, thinking they planned on running a tiller.
