Ag or turf tires? This time of year it would be running through some nice yards with the aerator, but at the same time I wonder if turf tires would hold up when Im running it through an overgrown field bush hogging with sticks and rocks and briers? What size engine? What brands? Thoughts?
Consider a hydrostatic transmission. Makes grading in tight places easier and when mowing you can vary your speed with the load.
R4 tread is what I use and seems to give good performance. Can leave damaging imprints in wet soil- something to consider if working on irrigated lawns.
