Better traction with tracks.

Is it me, or does it look like you would get better traction with the tracks on the yellow snowblower(Haige) than the Honda tracks? Looks like the same exact crawlers too

i think the honda tracks would likely grab a bit better. larger tread are more likely to crawl over snow and slip instead of digging in like the narrow honda treads would.

While my old HS80 treads would spin in heavy, hard snow, that was more due to the smoother augers not chewing into the hardpack. The more serious toothed augers on the HSS1332 keep breaking things up and the treads keep marching forward. On ice, though, I think a couple of tire studs per cleat would make a world of difference:
