    Anybody tried the Snow Wolf skid steer tires, I think they are called wolf paws or something like that. Skid steer is marking the asphalt with rear chains on. I am running the low profile tires, so getting e rated truck tires is out of the question. Need to get more traction, can't really push crap with the the Cat 262 and Blizzard 810ss combo. Would love a pair of rubber tracks, but Mclaren tracks are 4grand out the door. any suggestions would be great. mark

    $1100.00 per set, is that just for the tires or wheels and tires? Studded, or are they like blizzak snow tires? thanks for any advice or suggestions.

    Are you referring to the Galaxy hulk r-4 tires? Do they come sipped? I'm hoping to purchase some tires for a decent price. Some one else plows with a Cat 262 with a 10 foot snow pusher. I know the big Cat can plow more then it is capable of plowing now. Low pros with the Cat square link chains on the back tires.

    Any advice would be great,

    I also would like to know. I have a 262 and the chains mess up asphalt sometimes. I don't have low pro. just regular tires 12x16.5. Was wondering if anyone but truck tires on instead and what size. Was thinging of putting the thin ag tires on like on my kubota which goes through any depth of snow.

    I hope this helps

    Hi there. Just saw that you had some questions with your tires on your skidloader. Your right, the wide tires just don't have enough traction for snow, and 1100 bucks for a set of tires seems a bit crazy. I got some rims from the junkyard and adapted them to fit. Your skid loader has 8 bolt hubs with the same bolt circle as ford 3/4 ton rims. The holes will need to be drilled out a little to accept the larger stids on the skidloader, but otherwise work fine. Then Find a heavy duty work tire, ( I use goodyear workhorse XG's ) and you will be amazed at the difference. I have had good luck with this and I see several other machines using this set up. Just take them off in the summer and put the regular tires bak on. I hope this helps.

    I forgot to ask how did snow tires work on the skidsteer? Did you ever try snow tires or just the goodyears?

  13. R.M. any 3/4 ton Ford or does it have to be a specific year? Do you know what size the CAT's wheel studs are compared to the Fords wheel stud?

    Happy New Year.....

  14. YO hotsprings www.tirerack.com has E rated snow tires with studs for $84.00 each. So for $336.00 for tires and $100.00 or less for Ford rims you will be running with great traction and a nice smooth ride.....

    I put on a set of wolf paw studded tires on my S250 Bobcat a couple weeks ago, used them 3 times, good traction 6% driveway no chains, no slip, 8 in of snow paid 1200, for wheels and tires. a much narrower tire. much better w/o chains. no deep stuff yet, so far so good. will post eval. later
    more sierra snow, not rain!

    Slid off again

    Hi- brand new here, and tired of sliding off into my wife's flower garden. I'm currently renting a case 445 to bucket off our 600' drive with up to 11% grades, some a bit sideways- one area I slide on regularly. Also on the verge of buying an a300. Why do the snowpaws not fit on the A300, and what other option are you using? I'd rather go with the toolcat if I can't find a good AWS way to keep traction on side grades (debating).
