    I imagine those suck up the power but they probably make the skid steer running over rough terrain better.

    I wonder if they make the skid run smoother with more weight on the ground.

    I've never seen those! That 95XT looks like a construction version of the remote control trucks they sell everywhere with the monster tires.:weightlifter: I bet those do wonders for the drivetrain.:)

    Stompers...That brings back a lot of memories :)

    I bet those chew through drivechains.

    I am sure you wont see that option anytime soon on any OEM's large frame skid steer. Interesting idea though. I could see it having some applications in a logging operation. You certainly wouldn't just throw a spare in the back of your pickup. It would certainly have a CDI factor. Not that chics are really into skid steers.

    That doesn't count. You basicly paid for the that "chic to dig it" by buying a JD CTL. That certainly is a "different" kind of incentive program.:cool2:

    She might be after the Harley more. Then again, maybe she has her own bike. If that's the case, it must be that wicked CT332!:weightlifter: :)

    Those are some big tire's......But i just Think a CTL would do better than that and do better on the skid steer.
