    Does everyone/anyone use tire chains when they plow? Here in Colorado even little old ladies drive with chains on...do you want them on when you're plowing or not? and what kind of chains? Thanks..

    I have a couple of sets. Bought some really nice welded V bar chains last year. Plowing is so easy with them on, especially with a half loaded v-box. More like running a piece of heavy equipment. If I had a tight route, I would run them more often. But my spread is about 10 miles in three directions. I have three or four real tough ones that I wil chain up for.

    It's a good idea to keep a set handy if they are legal. I don't have the cam locks, but wish I did.
