Maybe if they could get some traction, you would only need 100 or so skids.1olddogtwo;1819657 said:Over 120 skids every season......factory tires hold there own pushing 10's
A good pusher box that cleans good will make the machine perform well and save on salt.
how did the lifemasters work out in the snow?derekslawncare;1819656 said:I searched the same thing on here, (use the search box upper right corner) and found several threads on the subject. Just signed the papers at my bank today for my new to me Case SV250. Should be picking it up next week. What I found with my searches was one of three things: either people recommend the Wolf Paw tires, or what I am looking at which is the Solideal Lifemaster. I got a quote online ($1170.00 for 4 including freight) from Midwest Equipment Sales, LLC (614-233-7368)for the Solideals. These are true skid steer tires with the proper weight rating for the weight of the machine, so you can use them year round without worry of overloading them. The third option which some guys are doing is picking up old 16" truck rims from the salvage yard and fabricating the correct bolt pattern to mount on the skid, then buying 16" truck tires to mount on them. They say doing this allows for more tire options, with cheaper prices and actually increases ground speed as well because the tire diameter is larger. This seems a little to "out there" for me. I'm going to give the Solideals a try. PM me with whatever you decide and I can let you know what I think of the Solideals after I use them if you decide to go with something else. One thing most are adamant about is that the standard skid steer tires that come on the machine SUCK in the snow. Good luck.
Don't know, never got them. I have moved since this thread started onto a ten acre property, and I bought a brush hog deck to mow with. The tires that were on the machine when I bought it a year ago were pretty much junk and I with all the rain this season, I was constantly getting stuck out in the field, so I bought a set of the airless tires from summit supply. They have the standard bar lug tread design. If I don't like them this winter, I still have the old wheels that I can mount some lifemasters on for the winter months.

OTT tracks are steel and are not suitable for plowing on paved surfaces. I am looking at a set for my skid for summer use.subydude;2036023 said:Over the tire tracks? I personally don't own a skid but have heard some good things about these. Also pretty useful in the summer if your trying to "tread lightly"....
I had a set of them airless foam filled would not push worth a dam. I found a guy on line Midwestern. I explained what was going on. He recommended a 16 that pushes well and works good on the construction jobs. I bought a set of rims and tires for under $1500.00 free shipping. I know of 3 guys that seen them and knew the price and bought the same tire. I bought the rims with them so I could change over easy if I had to go where nail etc.were present.Broncslefty7;1819633 said:has anyone had a luck with a good bobcat snow tire?
the wold paws look like they work well.
