This is a different machine, but with different tires on it, both brand new identical units. I'm curious whether our thicker, cold hydraulic fluid is leading us to have a stronger pull. They’re waiting here for a good snowfall to do the same thing out in the snow. About six months or so ago, we did a video on different tractive properties of tires and testing them with a load cell that we have. Our results from that test are interesting, in high range, we ran out of, basically, transmission pressure right around 1,300 pounds, about the same place where we broke loose with the turf tire. sense because in high range, we were seeing around 900 pounds of pull or so, and it showed before that we were breaking loose at about 1,300 here earlier. It seems that in high range, your tractor tire selection doesn't really matter.

|, We very frequently hear from customers how well turf tires can perform in the snow and something you wouldn't necessarily expect because of them not cleaning out so well. Now, normally, in high range, at either set of tires, the transmission isn't able to overcome the tractive power that you get from either of them, so it'd be interesting here to see how that compares in this icy slush.

Actually, giving some validity to the guys that say that they've had really good success with turf tires in snowy conditions. That seems to be where they are most liable to get chunks missing. Snow wise the R14s worked very well, no traction problems and we had quite a winter here in the PNW...over 100" of snow in Jan, plus lots of rain, and and the resulting ice. As most know, or will soon find out R4 tires are really slippery in the snow, ice and wet clay/mud. R3 tires, also known as turf tires, are designed to minimize turf damage with their shallower tread depth. I was not sure about R4's but went with them and I am not having any problems so far. Just curious as to why one would need new rims for switching tire design? Another great tip on here.

They've been out for almost a year now and not a single reply. I'm using the R3's and so far quite impressed with how they have handled snow and ice. Now, interestingly, if we look back to that prior video that we did, that same test done on dirt netted us right under 2,200 pounds, so a, tractive difference between being on the ice and being on dirt, unsurprisingly. They have a tread depth that’s about halfway between the depth on R1 and R3 tires. You will have to get the RC (rolling circumference) of the tires you have now and compare that to the RC of the new tires. My sense is that the R14's perform better in the snow than Agricultural Tires (R1) or Industrial Tires (R4), some in my area like Turf Tires (R3) for snow. When I bought my first 2520 I got a set of r3 and r4 . You must log in or register to reply here.

While they "look" like they would have great traction, fact is the hard rubber compound and large flat lugs make them super-slicks at times. Have to put r4 turf tires on it. JavaScript is disabled. Welcome.

Each yr or every time you coat the asphalt all is new , see no marks. Due to its large contact area with the ground the R4 tire is easy on the lawn. wheel weights? I have R4s. Very nice work. Finally, R-4 tires are built for durability and are puncture-resistant, making them longer-lasting than most other R series tires. R4 tires provide great traction and being that they are wider than the R1 tire, they gain the advantage of extra contact with the ground. Probably the outside temperature. I did put a set of rubber tire chains on so that may be a help, they are not necessarily made for R4's but I worked with them and have the bands adjusted as good as I can. These tires are often a good choice for compact tractors that will primarily be used for mowing or when working around your lawn or garden. On the KB website, you can factory build a B with R14's but not a BX. we swapped our tractors out now. Or a specialized snow tire with lots of siping. We're going to, some numbers to that here today, take a BX Series tractor, set the thing up, and see what it can do. Kenny, How many blades did you go through for all four tires?

We're going to repeat our same test here, low range, four-wheel drive, with air force tires.

:good2: Maybe even put a groove or 2 on the rears to help from sliding side ways if that is a problem. What's our variable here? B2650 w/loader, BB1260 Blade, LR1660 Rake, FDR1660 mower.


Surprisingly enough, R3 or AKA "Turf Tires" have fabulous traction, one reason being the extra "biting edges" from all the additional sipes/grooves, another is the snow that packs into the small grooves will actually "stick" to the snow on the ground to also provide traction. We've got some slush down here on the ground now, but this is going to be more than enough to get a. surface underneath those tires, so let's see what this thing does. I think no chairs would work fine, depending on how much snow is being pushed and the grade. So we're going to take a BX 2380 right here, we're going to start with turf tires, and give this guy a pull in both high and low range and see exactly what it can pull against that load cell. Established in 2009, we are the largest online community of Kubota tractor and equipment owners. And the previous winter I used rear chains! JavaScript is disabled. Slide her into low range, come up to full revs. So it looks like no size option to put onto a 2650.... That seems odd.... L4740-3 Cab, FEL, Fnt Snow Blower L2185, LP Finish Mower, LP Rotary Mower. Please fill out the form below to share. Then take a razor blade to them and cut them every 1/4" and that tractor will be unstoppable. Swapping the R1 tires and wheels with the R4 tires and wheels would be the same as changing a set of tires and wheels on your pickup or car. For my very first test here, I'm going to do this in low range with turf tires and see what kind of number we come up with. The equipment experts at Papé Machinery Agriculture & Turf have you covered with a breakdown of everything you need to know about flail mowers and brush hogs to help you make the right choice for your property. BX22, BX2750 Blower, BX2763 Blade, BX Power Broom, BX Grass Catcher. The selection between R4 and turf tires, well, R4s are clearly better in dirt applications, our numbers showed about 30%. I grooved and siped my rear Tru-powers and my front R4s - have 0 problems in snow two winters now and we just got a butt load of wet, greasy, heavy snow. These tires are usually made of a more wear-resistant composite that holds up well on asphalt and gravel, making it the ideal choice when you find yourself working between heavier duty and turf projects.
