    Tires and FEL

    I was installing my FEL and was lubricating it and wanted to make sure I got all of the zerks so I got the manual out for the FEL. In reading the manual it gave tire recommendations it listed R4, and R3 tires but not turfs. My question is I see a lot of tractors with an FEL with turf tires if moving heavy material with turf tires is that a safety issue that could end in a rollover, just thinking.

    R3 designates it as a turf. You would want to run more air in a turf though as it has half the sidewall strength an R4 industrial has.
