    hey guys in the market for a 4' machine after i sold my 553 a few months ago. i demod the asv rc30 couldnt load my dump trucks. i really like the s100 big improvements they made has alot more power then the 553, but maybe ill try this deere if it can be made into 4'

    According to my 313/315 brochure from John Deere it comes 4'11" wide without a bucket on. With the optional 7x15 tires you can get it down to 4'8". They are already as narrow as you can get them. I pretty sure you can turn the rims and make it wider though.

    Plus the Deere has another problem, lift the loader up and look at it from a side view, the chassis sticks out further than the wheels, with their already low ground clearance, if you even tried to climb over an 8" concrete landscape curb. you'll never get the tires over it, the chassis will just it the curb and do some awful damage.
