Hey, that's great! It even has X-Tracs. So some money was put into it fairly recently.

Someone replaced the engine too! (10,000 series machines had 8hp max from the factory.)
It's a hot rod!

Somebody help me out with my thinking :


I would think that putting on taller tires would shift more of the weight to the engine, and not the bucket. My thinking is that if you carried the logic to the extreme - put on 20" tall tires, just about all of the weight would sit on the tires.On the other hand, if you put on a 3" tire, then all of the weight would go onto the tires also. Without moving the axle, I can't imagine how tire size could move with weight transfer to the bucket.


Like i said, please help/explain !

I guess it is not important enough to me to drive 400 miles and the associated time, and expense. Guess I will have to trust you on this one. Or maybe I'll get out a couple of scales, and first mount my car tires on the snowblower, and then mount some skateboard wheels. LOL


I have noticed that most snowblower manufacturers have changed to using thinner tires, and I can see the reason for that, but I haven't measured their heights. Maybe they are taller, and this moves weight to the bucket without having to move the axle.

Like i said, please help/explain !

Place a rear wheel drive car on flat surface with the front tires pointed straight. Put a jack under the rear axle and start jacking up the rear higher like it's progressively getting bigger tires........
