Also do the r4 tires ride rougher than the ag tires. what does everyone suggest on tire pressure.

R4s are about the hardest tires there are. You could let most of the air out of them and the stiff sidewalls would still be standing tall.

Personally, I'd be some impressed if you could measure the difference with a dynamometer never mind from just operating the two.

As for the tires, it's a coin toss, the R4's have a broader closer tread pattern, but are harder rubber, the Ag's have wider spread narrower treads, but have softer rubber.

I'd say it would be about a tie either way.

Best of luck.

You have a lot more rubber in the industrial tire. They do weigh more per size over the ag tires and a lot of the extra rubber is in the side walls reducing the flex.

This helps the ag tire to fit the soil conditions better enhancing the traction. On the other side the skinnier bars spaced further apart do help dig in better then the industrial tires.

It is hard to get a traactor with the industrial tires to ride as well as turfs or ag tires. We are currently seeing some swing away from the industrail tires because of the rougher ride.

On the power end, I go along with Murf on the horsepower. They both run the same engine and max out at the same RPM so I'd say it would be tough to compare. Some times we do find a bigger difference with the torque although trying this on our dyno would be hard on this small of an engine.

You might find more power on the 3540 being used just to move it because of the extra weight although it might be hard to see or feel. It probably would not be that noticable with the extra shift on the hydro.
