Location - Central New Hampshire, side of mountain. Driveway & Class VI road, approx 3/4 mile. Mostly Dirt & fairly level. Equipment - Chevy Silverado 2500HD, Fisher V2SS plow, 1,200 lbs ballast in bed. So, the first 600' +/- of my driveway is paved and STEEP, dropping 0ver 100' in that distance. My last chains of the truck were V-chains, due to the fact that the top part was not originally paved. I needed the grip. Last winter I used the V's on the asphalt, chained up 4x. Worked fine, but I was afraid of the damage I was doing the road surface, & anyway they were worn out after last winter. After much debate, I bought 2 sets of square link alloy (boron) chain. I figure the square link will give me more "bite" than round link, but not be as destructive as the V's were. Short story long, what do folks think about plowing with all 4 tires chained on a hill like that vs just having chains on the rear? My thought is having some rubber surface on the asphalt might help with traction? We've had 2 plowable storms already, I've tried it both ways. The problem with making comparisons is, of course, that every storm gives you a little something different to deal with. Heck, even one pass down the driveway may be quite different that the next one! Interested in the collective plowing brain-trust opinions. Thanks - Got a big storm coming tonight!
