    Just wondering if anyone is running 14' arctic's on a John Deere 244J. I thinking of upgrading? Our heaviest snow events in this area run about 5 to 6 inch's and most are 2 to 4 inch's. our properties are smaller outside malls.
    Thanks AOS

    i would not reccommend a 14' on a 244j. we have a couple 244j's that we have one 10' and one 12'. it handles the 12' no problem, in wide open areas. we also just bought a 344j that we are going to put the 14' on. this is going to be one bad ass snow moving machine!!! maybe some pics in the future.

    I agree. A 14 is a bad choice on a 244. We run 10s and 12s on my Volvo L20Bs with out any trouble, but I would never risk putting a 14 on one. I am adding an L35B this season, and I am going to stick with a 12ft on it.

    Do you guys have counterweights on your machines? Ever have any problems with tires slipping? If you don't mind, how much did the 344j run you?
