    15" wide tracks. Runs about the same ground pressure as the TL120, but climbs a heck of a lot better on snow piles without sinking.

    Two speed is a huge advantage in the snow. We had about 10" of wet heavy snow fall on frozen ground and it was an animal...pushes snow so hard you could see the snow breaking 15' out in front of the plow.

    Needs the Next Gen tracks for a smooth ride though.

    Just think if you had the VTS attached to a machine that actually had power. That is when it is truely impressive..........:laugh:

    Have you ever run your VTS in snow, or do you take it off in the fall?

    I'm glad to hear they are warranting it AND sent you a replacement. That's good service.

    I leave them on. Work really well as long as the surface isn't solid ice.
