 Tire Heights for B7500, B2410 and B2710

Just when you think it is done, it starts up again.
I go Kiwis (the fruit). My vineyard is planted and trellised with a pergola system that has wires running horizontally through the field at about 6 feet off the ground. These wires are very, very strong and have very little give.

In chosing a tractor, it is important both the tractor and the driver, me, fit under these wires. The tractors I have tried all had foldable ROPS.

I had the Kubota dealer deliver a B7500 with R-4 industrial tires for demonstration and both it and I fit under the wires just fine, but it turned out the B7500 did not have the features I need, so I moved up to a B2410. Since the dealer did not have any instock, I roughly calculated the clearance of the ROPS and me and think we both will fit under the wires.

So, I decided to order the B2410. Now I am wondering since it's industrial tire size appears to be the same tire as the B2710 (per my dealer's spec book), if the B2410 and I will fit under the wires. And these tires are a lot taller than the B7500's tires.

Now for the twist, Well, the dealer has a B2710 that comes off flooring and is willing to sell it to me for the same price as the B2410. It appears to be just an inch or two too tall for me to fit under the wires and it appears from measurements that the tractor will clear the wires by a few inches. This unit has R-4 industrial tires also. I am having it delivered next week for testing.

I can also use R-1 Agricultural tires as my application is purely agricultural. I almost never will be off dirt.

My question is to you guys or gals who own a B2410 or a B2710, could you measure from the ground to the top of the cleat and tell me how tall your rear R-1 Agricultural tires are? Then I can compare to the R-4 tires and determine if a switch in tires will give me the clearance I need. The dealer said the R-1 Agricultural tire is an inch or two shorter than the R-4 Industrial tires, but we did not have any to measure

Thanks for the help

If they are an inch or two shorter, then the B2710 will probably work.
