 B6200 w/ Loader

I am picking up a Kubota B6200 w/Kubota loader and a rear mower. I feel that the price is right, (after reviewing how you have priced things out for others on this site). my real questing is in the tires. I thought that the turf tires that are on it would not be rough enough for my plans. (hauling through the woods, removing the crown from the driveway. etc) It is a 4X4 unit whith hydro trans.
Is it worth the effort and money to replace the tires with a Ag type?
Is it costly to switch the tires seasonally?
Would I have to replace the wheels to fit the Ag tire?
Could you point me in the direction to buy these tires in the new england area. Connecticut

 B6200 w/ Loader

Brian -

I have turfs on all my Kubotas, and never experienced any problems with them as far as traction goes.(B5200's, etc, same size as B6200, merely lower HP engine)

Yes, you would need to purchase different wheels if you wanted to take the turfs off and replace them with ags. Or, you could find a comprimise tire tread from a light truck style that would fit on your existing wheels, and have the best of both worlds. Not sure what type of terrain you've got, but if you are gonna be cutting grass, why would you want ags. They'll have a tendency to cut up your yard, forget the grass.

There is a place outside Schenectady NY, www.macfaddens.com
that has , from what I hear a good selection of stuff at considerable savings. For this size tractor, a set of wheels and tires usually runs about $1000.00 from an orange dealer. If you're considering changing, contemplate the R4 tires, like what you would find on a skidsteer. The rears, staying with Kubota products, is a direct match up to the fronts of a Kubota L4310, 6 on 6 bolt pattern. Did it, done that, works great; size is 16.5 x10.00.
With this tire tread, it won't tear the lawn anywhere near as much as the ags will, and for woodsy travel, or mucking, the tire's treads won't fill up as a tight turf tire tread would.

Again, I never had any problems with my aggressive tread turfs, even logging / skidding 40'hardwoods with them. I merely made a set of chains for all four. Alot cheaper, quicker, and space saving than another set of wheels & tires. Then when finished, release, and driveaway to mow your lawn. Keep in mind that the ags are narrower and slightly taller than the turfs. Even though you have adjustability on the rear axle for width and stabilizing, the unit may be easier to roll, as you change the dynamics of the center of gravity...just be mindful of that.

Pretty much falls on the type of ground cover your gonna travel on.

Willie H.

 B6200 w/ Loader

Orange dealers might charge you $1000 but when I got new wheels for the rear of my B6200 at www.macfaddens.com they only charged me $50 each for the rims (brand new ones!!!) and $100 each for ag tires (brand new ones!!) that's $300 total for the rear. I'm sure the front would be cheaper.

Orange dealers charge so much for tires because people think wow, these are tractor tires. Woo hoo! But the rear tires of B6200 are only 16 inch tires, that's the same size as some car tires. No reason they should cost any more than car tires.
