    I think I went over it here: http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=68791

    Use it so we can get pushing snow on the muskeg quicker so it freezes faster to get the tractors out.

    Maybe an ignorant question but, what is the deal with the tires behind the tractors? Counterweight?

    Actually they are just drags, to smooth out the rough bush roads we go over, and it also help pack in the frost and freeze it up better. Oh and it also makes the plant sites nice and smooth from the tractor itself going back and forth to clear it. But they do help as weights on some of the big hills, couple times I started to spin out so I just lift the blade and drags and it would hook up.

    Nice stuff, you should be set for a ton of snow! What size boots on the 8220? 600 fronts and 710 rears??

    Just cuz I am bored, went and grabbed some more pics.
    Couple of the new trailer, all dirty from the drive home. The beavertails are tied into the trailer's air, flip the lever and they go down and up nice and smooth, pretty cool setup.

    At first I wondered why your primary plowing vehicle was a farm tractor.

    Then I saw the pics of the "roads" and noted you were from Alberta. Now it makes sense.

    Nice equipment. You could handle akll the snow if hell froze over with that gear.
