In this same grass area the extra weight pushes the tines down another 1/4" to maybe 1/3" over the standard one weight.

Turning balance wise about the same but the extra weight out front yes you can tell to some degree it's there. As for loading on a ramp not a huge difference since it is still fairly well balanced fore and aft. When loading you just have to push up on the bar to transfer the weight down on the front wheels.
I had to use my Plugr on 2 properties last year due to difficult access and steep slopes. Plugr Hydros can go some crazy places. Ground clearance is higher on the new 855. I found smoking deal on a barely used 2nd 850 so no plans on buying a 855.
