    Hey guys just trying to grasp what is going to be the best route here, I know manyof you have experience with this.

    Just got a new CAT 262c and rampin up for the winter. Was planning on ordering a 10 ft Kage system for it (I am tossing up between the 9ft & 10 ft, Having trouble deciding).

    Now I imagine with a 10ft blade I would be experiencing alot of slip with the stock tires. Should I get the A set of chains to throw on the stock tires or invest in a set of Snow Wolf winter tires for it? Thanks for your input here.

    I would guess snow tires would be a better choice. Chains can tear up the asphalt, at least I can marks on my driveway from when I used to use my garden tractor.

    Snow tires (wolf paws) & the 10fter. You'll be very happy you did.

    Okay Excellent thank you, I keep tossing up between the 9ft and the 10 ft. One thing I am concerned about with the 10' , How do I effectivly move this thing around. I havent seen how it will work, is there just alot of overhang on both sides?
