Without chains the deuce can't make it > up the slightest incline in six
inches of snow and downhill it becomes the proverbial sled.

I drove deuces and 5 ton tractors for three years in Korea, including going
up to the DMZ to tow back an M543A2 with part of its block laying on the
ground/ice.. the deuce handles snow ( on roads at least ) just fine. It
wouldn't have been much use to us if it didn't. And in the motor pool we
did not have any chains for the trucks ( between us and our sister company
there were probably 150 vehicles or so ).

We didn't do much off road driving in winter, or tried like heck not to, so
this was paved roads only. But they did well when asked to. Far better
than most of us did trying to walk to or from the trucks. <g>
