    just wanted to get some thoughts on my new setup this year. i used this skid last year for the first time with a ten foot pusher. it was ok had some traction issues with some worn tires. this year i upgraded to new snow wolf tires and sold my pusher for a ten foot angle plow with wings. i had a section of road that the pusher couldn't make. the rest is just flat parking lots. we had one storm already with 5inches of heavy wet snow and the increase in traction was amazing i really liked the plow also should be interesting winter

    Looks AWESOME. I got a JD 250 and wish I had your tires. I also LOVE those doors. Mine didnt come with a door and the dam things are $1600! so i had to go with vinyl. I will get some pics up of mine in a few days.

    Looks good Im not sure about the plow extensions, out in the open yes but can you run a curb line with them without damaging them. If so then no problem.

    Nice set up. I've always plowed with angle plows and think they are so much more versatile. Hopefully the snow keeps coming!

    Did you remove the weights or just dom't have any?

    Also who did you go through to buy the tires?

    thanks for all the comments! the tire set cost me $1700 and the plow was around $3500. i have the rear weight brackets but no weights. the pricing on the tires were all over the place i was quoted 2300 buy another dealer so i called snow wolf and asked for a high volume dealer that would have a good price. i am also real happy with the plow quality should be fun.

    Thats a really good price on the "larger" wolf paws. Is that before tax?

    that was before sales tax i bought them from a new holland dealer in milwaukee wi that had a branch in madison. madison was only an hour away so i drove and picked them up. i am sure shipping would have been alot. i thought it was a great price
