I'm getting my mind right on several issues thanks to you good and knowledgeable folks. On a different thread you had me consider the average type of usage to help select a tractor model, but now I'm wondering if the turf tires would make more sense over the industrials. 75% mowing-25% chores. The chores would include 200' gravel driveway maintenance (snow plowing as well). My current machine has turfs and the one before that did also. Always used weights and chains though but never has 4x4. Only ever 2x with traction lock on both. I take that back. My 1978 JD316 did not have traction lock. It had turning brakes. Anyhow.....can I live out my days with turf tires on a 1025R ?? Are the R4s that rough on grass ? I'll bet lots of you do a lot of mowing with R4s.
