    These are what we use on 2 of our walk behinds. They are an Ag tread and they work great. Now before everyone goes "OH my gosh, you cant use that", yes you can if you know how to use a walk behind. We have sandmounds in the backyards of 95% of our clients and they are a bear to mow, these have worked out best for us.


    Here is an easy yard.

    Do you have any problems tearing turf? I wonder if anybody makes a knobby or R4 type tire that small. That definitely looks really cool!

    Most of us "older" contractors 'found" these tires years and years ago....they are not new.....

    Didn't say they were new, or that I "found" them, just that they work good.
