    i know for a fact that it is not photoshoped, I drive by the Grouser plant everyday here in good old home town West Fargo ND and see those blades mounted on the front of those STX's. The Case IH plant is located about 5 miles to the east of the grouser plant so alot of them come right over from there and get a blade mounted on them.

    P.S, why when ever I try to view a youtube video now days it says "were sorry, but this video is no longer avalable." anyone else have this problem? do i need to change a setting on my computer? I know everyone else can see them but I cant?? WTF

    I bet that tractor is used by the power plant in the background to push coal around.

    No way anyone would use that for snow.. But coal is something else.

    I see itbut still find ithard to believe that it does not lose traction with all the weight in front any nothing in the rear. Unless they are using the diff lock and then you are not supposed to turn.

    Im not sure, cause i cant view the video for some reason, but im asuming were talking about a stx. It might have a rear weight package on it. Sometimes they can be hard to see cause there tucked down back behind the fuel tank. You can add thousands of pounds back there,

    It's around 10,000 per track depending on what tracks you buy. But as a general rule we see it as 40000 per machine.

    It's an stx 535. I am unsure as to where you are going to add that weight underneath the machine in the rear unless you are adding it to the hitch box. Under the fuel tank at least on ours is out of the question.

    I also know for a fact that the ride on pavement is going to be a rough one. I woulden't want to be the one operating it.

    IDK but if it slippery enough to need diff lock you probably wont hurt it turning

    If the blade had steel trip it would be good for snow but the way it is it's only good for gravel. Cool looking though.

    Slight turns are ok but our dealer mechanic (which is married to one of our operators) says its hard on the hydo pump to turn really sharp. your better off to lock only the rear tracks and not all tracks unless you are going to be going straight.

    IDK I have to go by what he tells us and what the boss wants.
