How about a review on those rear tires? How do you like them? What are they?

Thanks.

Those are Carlisle Mud Wolfs
AT25 x 11 x 12 (corrected)
Made in USA.

They are not a good alternative to Turf tires for regular lawn care uses.

They are great in a snow (with extra weight) and without the use of chains. I started using them after installing of new asphalt driveway. The are even better (compared to turf tires with chains) on snow covered lawn or on gravel driveway.

They are great in all other uses with an exception of a soggy lawn. As the name says, they do bite.

Their crown is round (like a doughnut in cross-section) and you need to lift your fenders with spacers about 1-1/4” tall to clear.

That’s all I can think of.

Great job on the bucket mount, looks like it works great! How is the winch attached? Is it just bolted to the seat/fender assembly?

The winch is not attached to fender assembly. Too weak to support the forces.
Here is a picture showing winch cradle.
The cradle is attached to tractors frame.
