If my truck tires tires go around once they cover about 8 feet. If they spin 10 times, that's 80 feet. 100 times is 800 feet.

I don't know what the distance is on the tractor tires, but I have been plowing the driveway for two days now and if I had an odometer on the tractor, it would say well over 150 miles! I spin about three times to move forward 1 turn, sometimes more. I can't just plow down the length of the driveway because the snow is so deep. I have to take chunks out and put it where there is room. I can't even make it to work today because I can barely make it to the end of the driveway with chains on the tractor!!!!
