 755 Trying to turn over on

I have two tractors that I am trying out before I buy, a 755 4x4 and a B6100 4x4 the deere tries to tip over side ways when you hit a rock, the 6100 just crawls over, there is a big weight diference between the two, but green v/s orange? Hp is another factor I need the most,Now the main question is can you increase the rear width on the 755? It has turf tires now, would R-4 tires do better on hills, The 755 has 517 hrs and price tag of 5500, B6100 has 2100hrs and a tag of 2200 both are clean with no dents or mishaps, 6100 has Belly Deck and no ROPS, 755 has Hyds drive and ROPS and two front weights but nothing else.Most of my chores are on the hill, Safety is my first concern, and quality and value come 2nd. I dont see needing anything bigger in the future, So please give me some opions.Thanks

The rear wheels likely can be swapped to increase the width a bit but a wider stance isn't likely to solve the problem. R4's may provide a bit better traction on many soils (which also is part of safety) but again neither are likely to cure a substantial stability problem. A far better approach with any tractor is to plan work so the tractor can be driven up and down hills. If you work on side hills, a ROPS and seat belts is a definite plus.

You might say a bit more about the work to be done and particularly why HP is important. For many jobs smaller tractors with less HP just take longer to get the work done. Other jobs really need the traction a heavier machine provides and extra HP doesn't do much good if the tries just spin.

It strikes me that maybe neither tractor is great for the application but each are in the low price range. Some maintenance expenses should be anticipated on a 2,100-hour tractor.

Another thing to consider, I think the B6100 has that bass ackwards pto rotation which might make it hard to find/run certain rear implements.

I don't think I would be very comfortable, especially in that environment with a tractor that has no ROPS.

What is your plan? mowing? adding a FEL?

I am thinking the 755 might have a lot more manners with some ballast. My 4100 is a whole different machine with some weight on it.

Well my plans include a FEL, I would also like to add a 60" deck to the 755, but main use will be in the form of removing hundreds of basketball size rocks of the property,
and cleaning up the remains of Dozer work,I have turned the rear wheels out and increased the rear stance, Would a landscape rake, or rock rake work very well with rocks this large, and on a hill? I am able to to move up and down pretty good, but there is one or two areas that make you stop and skip that area, The 6100 is just so small in size, the only reason I tried it, is the low ground clearence, Thanks again for the help.

Sounds to me like the rocks may be a bit large for most rakes, especially if some digging has to be done. I haven't used one but I suspect that a tooth bar on a loader would work pretty well. They are capable of some digging and rocks that size when loose could be curled back into the bucket and carried away. I'd probably try it with my box scraper scarifiers but that would work only for rocks that could be pulled loose.

It sort of takes an experienced operator who knows a tractor to make a decent judgment about what's reasonably safe on hills. In general, slides are maybe more common than tips, and slides can turn into tips. Things are tricky anytime a tractor is on a slope where there's potential of the traction breaking and the tractor sliding. Doing ground engaging work under such conditions is especially tricky. Implements can produce unexpected load changes and weight transfers as well as traction changes. It'd be best to gain some experience on some pretty gentle slopes to see how it feels and seriously avoid working across a hill.

the 755 will be too small of a tractor to remove those size rocks. I had a JD750 that was too small and bought a 4210 which will do the job as soon as I modify a front used bucket I bought. I plan to weld forks on the front bottom edge and cut slots in the bottom of the bucket to allow dirt to sift thru while holding the rocks in the bucket. I've used the box scraper to break the dirt and exposed the rocks (2"-6" diameters), now to find time to modify the front bucket Smile

Maynard, we already have buckets that do that job and they hold up really well. They have a lower part to hold rocks while picking them up so you can really get a good load. They are built with 3/4" rod (up to 11/2"Wink yeah right for the bigger tractors.
