    does anyone know of a replacement tire for the toolcat that would do better in snow than the tires that are on it?

    Which tires do you currently have. A local college was having trouble with the turf type in snow. As far as I know the bar type worked out well for them after they switched.

    I think ya might be the ONLY one!

    Wouldn't a turf tread (more like an all terrain truck tire) tire work better for snow? I would think the standard skid steer type tires would be bad for snow. :confused:

    Is that a boss plow on that.... How about getting the tires on it studded... other than that I think bobcat might be able to help you...

    mud and snow tires are generally different. with mud you want big lugs spaced apart, like superswampers. in the snow you want little lugs, close together, with sipping (sp) if possible.
    with your toolcat i thought it might not weigh enough, but looked up some specs on it and it weighs close to 5000 lbs. adding some balast to the rear should help get more traction though.
