 Bar/Turf tires vs. Turf vs. Ind. for a B7500

Has anyone used the Bar/Turf tires. Most of my work will be lawn cutting. However living in NY state, I will be doing snow removal also. Any advice on these tires?

 Bar/Turf tires vs. Turf vs. Ind. for a B7500

Morning DPM You can go either way. I'm also from UP state NY. I used ag tires for over 13 years on all terrain. Lots of finish mowing. My new tractor I opted for turfs. I am impressed with them on every thing but soft soil. The ags work better in field and woods conditions. Turfs are fine on snow and ice. Ags on driveways and packed snow/ice do not work as well as turfs. Turfs do not work as well as ags in deeper field snow. I do use a set of chains on all 4 in muddy or snow conditions. I had to use chains on the ags on ice and snow and in the woods also. So unless I am doing lots of field or woods work, I would opt for turfs again.

I have used turf tires and am in SouthEastern Ontario. They have been excellent in anything but deep mud and deep snow. They tend to ride on the top and then when you lose traction they dig in.
The low clearance of my B7500 means that I have used a shovel a couple of times to get my machine out of the woods.
I wouldn't use anything else for general purpose work if it includes lawn care.

I've experience with three types: ag, R4 and turf. The ags are taller, the R4's are shorter but wider; both shed wet soil very well and give adequate traction for a compact. When I backhoe or do loader work in wet or muddy soli on a client's property, the ag's and R4's shed soil nicely and I don't leave debris on harder surfaces. Ag's and R4's if driven sanely, out of MFWD, on firm turf, really don't tear up the surface. Ag's and R4's do leave an impression on turf if the machine is heavy, though, and this ticks off some folks. The turf tires, while I've never gotten stuck, tend to pack the treads with wet/muddy soil. As soon as I get on the driveway they make a mess and I end up returning several days later when the debris has dried to cleanup.
