Setting up the int154 for snowplowing

Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:51 pm

I'm starting to set up my int154 cub for snowplowing. I'm making the tire chains up right now. And i ordered new 2" tire spacers so the chains will fit the 13.6x16 tires and clear the rear fenders. They i'll load the rear tires up to 317lbs each. I don't think i'll need any more weight thats should do it. What do you think? Do i need a box weight on the rear?(3pt)

Its funny this tractor pushed dirt with just 1 set of rear wheel weights with the 8,3 tires with tire chains. But i had a hard time pushing snow. I'm going to also set up two of my cub cadets too for plowing snow. One with the blade(70) and the 100 with the snowblower as backup just incase the way my luck has been lately. My jeep will be fixed too. I also have a plow for my fcub if i get that far before the weather changes or gets worse. I'd like to compare and try them all out this year.

I would say you have plenty of weight, I would be hesitant to put anymore on it for fear of overloading the drive system.

I believe these machines can push our snow that we get here with the right combination of rear weight,(wheel weights/tires loaded) and tire chains. Its just figuring out the correct balance. I know i need one set of front wheel weights for steering.
