    My dealer carries and services stihl so I have never eally gotten much else, as I prefer to do all of my business at the same place. So far I have been really pleased with the br600.

    As an update, I purchased a BR600 Magnum last week, and I really like this blower.

    Also, I was investigating purchasing the Eliminator blades, and I found out they no longer sell them...

    They said they did not have enough orders to keep the manufacturer busy.

    The bolt pattern is 5 @ 4-1/2" centers. I am not sure I know what you mean by zero offset??

    Zero offset means that the wheels center is "centered" :confused: Anyways I contacted brutt tires and ordered a set of 10x6 with 0 offset and 20x10x10 turfmasters. What PSI are ya'll running in that tire? Hopefully this tire will cut down on tearing up yards.

    This is exactly what I ordered from Brutt, rims and tires. I run ~15 psi. I think a clear difference runs 12-15 psi.

    I used my mower twice after I bought it in February, and noticed 'ruts' from the back tires. That's when I came to this site and started reading of how to fix this. These new tires leave no 'ruts'. One thing you may want to do is remove the stock spacers to give mimimum distance between the back tires.

    As another bit of info, I ordered another set of tires and had them mounted on the stock rims which are 5-1/2" wide [just to have another set]. To make these work without rubbing, I ordered a set of 7/16" spacers from Summit Racing..

    http://www.summitracing.com/search/...ct-Line/Mr-Gasket-Wheel-Spacers/?autoview=SKU

    This all works with clearance of about 1/16" to 1/8" between the tires and the frame, and the distance between the back tires in this configuration is right at 36".

    You will love these tires, and it really enhances the ride and look of the mower. Please post pictures once you get it all together.

    lukespappa, the tires that are on the Gravely (not the ones on the trailer gate) look real good. Are they the same tires as the ones on the trailer gate? What brand and where did u get them. Awesome looking machine. Thanks for all the good info.

    They are Carlisle TurfMaster 20x10x10. Like I said in the other thread, I have a set of these on the stock rims with spacers [please see other thread]
