X98 - Waging the War on Winter.

I noticed you installed the chains on the rear wheels. Some guys insist they work better on the front. Have you ever tried them on the front? If so, any noticeable difference?

I have not tried them on the front. I think the chains would rub hard on the frame with the wheels turned all the way. When the blade is up there isn't much weight on the rear wheels so they may work better on the front. I'm not sure where the most traction would be with the blade down pushing a big pile of snow???

I am about to install the chains on my 3A and had all the same questions. I ran them on the rear last year and they worked well so I'll probably just do that again. I think even if overall traction improved the rubbing on the frame would be a deal breaker.

And fess up Bob, either you have wooden blocks wedged between the frame and front springs or that plow is made of styrofoam. X98 isn't even beginning to squat down under the weight. Wow!

X98 just has new replacement springs, nothing else. I kinda wish they would flex a bit more.

I come across a set of standard 10 leaf replacement Omix Adda springs on a 3B.
I noticed they will hardly flex at all.
With all the weight shifted toward a single front spring it still clears the axle bumper by 1-1/2 inches.
So it's like why bother having axle bumpers ?
Not impressive at all concerning Omix Adda spring flex.
Maybe they will break in with a Yipao load  Cheesy
