Chains with weight added pie and liquid in tires no ? about it, push pull or drag snow and ice.Reason I say this is the more area you spread the weight out the less traction you have. With chains the weight is concentrated in one cross link one at a time. If you don't get hi-centered you can do what you want to do on ice and snow. You wont loose traction but you can kill the power unit, unlike loss of traction and still have a running power unit. Tracts are a neat item but for snow and ice no contest for chains.

You made some good points comparing chains and half tracks.
That is why the method used on my 8N is quite effective. Wrap the tire with the tracks and the traction is concentrated on one spot. As for weight, the tracks weigh a minimum of 200 pounds and there is no need for wheel weights or loaded tires. I have stated in previous posts, half tracks will take the N tractor to task when eliminating the idlers. Mr. T. Minnesota

Hey if it works for you thats what counts and I wish I had a set of tracks just to have. The problem with tracks is there aint enough to go around but chains are abundant.Enjoy.
