    what do u guys prefer tracks or tires on your snowblowers???
    i bought an mtd 9hp with tracks 2 years ago, and man is that think slow as he11. even in high gear it crawls.
    i bought an ariens 9hp with tires and the thing kicks butt, dont get me wrong the mtd has power but.........it just doesnt have the ground speed needed to go fast.
    i found it works better then the tires machine in real high snow only.

    whats your opinions?

    Tracks are way too slow. Don't try moving it if it breaks down either!
