After having the wheel weigths painted for 6 months and the tractor paint for 2 months now, I decided to put one of the weights on today. Getting closer to you know what, so I have to get started and get all the snow removal tractors ready. So after a lot of struggling and paint scratches, I have one on. Don’t look to bad. But I kinda liked the white wheel. I’ll get use to it. These are 75 lb front wheel farm tractor weights. Fit perfect. And I have chains to put on too, they were on the original turf tires, so I’ll see if they will fit the ag tires.

There now. Chains and other weight on. Not perfect, but ya gotta use what you have. On to the snocaster now. Service and hopefully a quick coat of paint on it, before the “&@)(&¥%|=£€?
Chains a little loose, so will use some inner tubes to tighten them up a bit. But don’t want them to tight.

I don't have personal experience with duals. But years ago this subject came up and others said duals were OK for "parade queens" AKA "COOL factor", but not for working tractors. On rough terrain were the outside dual would be on high ground, you are putting a lot of torque on the axle hub. These guy's speaking from experience had snapped the hubs off of the axle shaft.

On ice you will have double the contact area, but only half of the pounds per square inch, unless you are adding more weights and fluid. But that brings us back to added torque on the hub. In snow the duals have twice the face to push through the snow, with single tires I can tell the difference between 23x8.5-12 and 23x10.50-12 tires, the wider 10.50 will spin easier with or without chains. Think of it this way, farmers use duals or even triples in the spring mostly for floatation in soft wet fields.

OK So just curious, did you set the second set of tire next to the others and measure how wide it will be with the duals on? The duals won't be very helpful if they are wider than the snow caster and running in / fighting the unblown snow.

Duals are for flotation and less compaction only. We REMOVE excess weights on the rear axle when using them. The only extra weight sometimes needed is suitcase weights on the front end to keep some traction to the front axle when the draft or weight of the drawn or mounted implement is great.

OK I measured my 448 the rears are 40" outer side wall to outer side wall. So if your tires are 8" wide and 1" gap that means you are going to be 18" wider than mine and you will be 10" wider than a 48" snow caster at 58". So you are going to need BIG wings on the caster or find a 5 foot snowblower to modify to fit your tractor.
