    JD 4052R and Turf Tires

    Hello,

    I've ordered a JD 4052R with loaded turf tires. My dealer is questioning my tire selection . . . does anyone see anything wrong in selecting turf tires for the 4052R? I don't think I need more aggressive tires for my property or location. Your thoughts please.

    If you aren't driving on turf, why not use R4. They are thicker, stronger, better traction and generally better in all regards except maybe leaving tracks in soft grass/ground

    R4 will most certainly better all around for traction

    This - I do NOT know the answer, but is there a difference in load capacity for the bucket or other implements between turf and R4?

    Tires

    I've never been a fan of turf tires, at the local JD dealership maybe 5 out of a 100 4 Series are delivered with them. People here on GTT swear by them on snow. Back in the day every tractor I drove anywhere near ice or slush, the tread to tire flat area filled up with slush or snow to form a totally flat surface like a having two bowling balls for tires. Even on flat green grass(like a golf fairway) that was moist you could do donuts with them, that said imho, they do offer low compaction and don't damage the turf, hence "Turf" !

    YMMV

    Turf tires belong on turf.
    Listen to the dealer, and get R4's or R1's. Snow/winter usage vs rest of the year usage, is a 1/4 of the time you'll want the better traction that R4's or R1's provide. You can add chains for winter use if you really need to.

    You have not provided your location so it is difficult to determine what your needs might be. If you are in the sunny south and operate strictly on turf, then turf tires is the best way to go. If you are going to be using for ag purposes, then R1 ag tires are the way to go. Also best for snow. Then we come to R4 tires which are the best combination. I ordered my 1025R with turf tires, but now I live in the country, so when I upgraded to my 4066R, I went with R4 tires as I do pretty much everything you can do with a tractor, including mowing my yard. I might be using my tandem disk. I might be brush hogging a field. Also, the R4 tires are also known as industrial tires, meaning they are heavier duty and less likely to get cut up. To me, turf tires on a 4 series tractor is the last choice I would make. They are mostly for those using a larger tractor puling gang mowers on a golf course or something similar. Basically a large lawn mower.

    Thanks guys,

    I've changed my tire selection to R-4s. I have turf tires on my 4310 and they have served me well for 15 years or so. I guess my application or use of the 4052 will warrant the need for R-4 tires.

    Thanks again for your opinions.

    In the uses you listed, snow removal is the only thing that would be better with turf tires as R4s are pretty slick. A good set of chains will cure that though.
