tractor needs new tires - ag on grass?

Postby bandit86 » Tue Aug 24, 2010 6:17 pm

do AG, the chevron type tires really dig up a lawn?

I have a lot of ditch and hilly areas where my turf tires spin, plus AG tires look cool.

WHat about a heavy machine? thinking like a kubota lx25

Unless you are mowing when the ground is very, very, soft/wet/muddy, I found the ag tires do less damage to the lawn than turf tires do, and they do not spin as easy. Ag tires are all I used for mowing until I bought a zero-turn mower, and now I have little divots in the yard from tire spinning.

I have wheel weights on my Cub Cadets. If your tires are still good - suggest picking up a set. I mow Missouri side hills. Weights make a big difference.

I picked up wheel weights at auction for $20- a set. I bought a 2 wheeled garden tractor for $10- with a set of wheel weights.
I have an excuse. CRS.
