 4100 tire scuff

I would like to know if any one has had any experience with the 4100 scuffing grass when making tight turns. IE triming around trees. I run a 60 deck with the tri-cycle mulcher and love it for mowing but need to watch tight turns. I seem to remember problems a year or two ago on larger (4200+) 4000 tractors. I have owened this one for about a year. Thanks.

 4100 tire scuff

FJ45, I have a 4100 with R4 tires and get a little scuffing. It is usually when I have the forward speed a little high or the ground is a little moist. I have found that if you take it slow you'll reduce the chance of scuffing. Also, do you have your 4 wheel drive engaged? That will increase your chances of scuffing also. Good luck.

 4100 tire scuff

I agree that the 4wd on a 4100 will increase scuffing on grass and soil. The dealers book on this model says that the tires and gears are set up so that the front wheels turn faster than the rears. And when you make a tight turn the situation is even worse because the wheel on the inside of the turn is running at the same speed as the outside tire.

Mark, when I read that it sounds like you are implying that the inner and outer tire on the same axle have to turn at the same speed. But I believe that they can turn at different speeds because of the differential gear set between the tires. Maybe it was just the wording that threw me.

 4100 tire scuff

The tire scuff is in 2X4 and at low speeds. I have talked to a dealer who said the early 4100 had a slight problem. He thought my dealer could send in a request for a replacement (new style) frt axle. If any one has experiance about having a non recall fix done please give me your thoughts. Is this more of the squeaky wheel getting the attention?

Yes right. Maybe you can offer another explaination for the twin ruts my front wheels leave in soft soils every time I turn the wheels.

 4100 tire scuff

I mow with my 4100 (54" deck) and have not found a problem as long as I am in 2wd and am not too aggressive (i.e., too fast)
