 GC2300 or GC2310 ag tires and mmm

Has anyone actually used a MF 2300 or 2310 with a mmm and the standard ag tires for mowing. My dealer thinks I should go with the ags (looking at GC2310) and says they are not as aggressive as some ags and won't damage the lawn even in wet areas...but I'm not sure I agree. I understand they help a lot with fel work, but in good conditions I would think turfs would be ok...and tire type should't come into play with bh work at all since the weights of them anyway when you use bh.

tompet, an indirect answer for you: I have the GC2300 w/ turfs and have had no problem. 90% of my work has been on lawn/gravel driveway. FEL work has not sufferred in my opinion. Weight distribution is important, but when I've needed traction & power, I've had plenty of both.

If you try using the search feature, I think you'll find several older posts about the merits of your tire choices. Good luck!

 GC2300 or GC2310 ag tires and mmm

I have a Kubota bx23 with ag tires.
Lawns shouldn't be mowed when wet any way so
Mowing hasn't been a problem with them for me.
If I did find by some chance I just had to mow wet grass I would just use my wards 46 lawn tractor.

It would make a difference, you talk of backhoe work, that when wet or sometimes not so wet the loose soil causes the tires to fill up and become a big slippery ball and give no traction. Ag tires don't do it so quickly and tend to clean out faster so more work can be done. If you have a lot of digging to do, not knowing your soil conditions I'd go with the ag style as we do have people mowing with the ag tires. On the other side of it on the BX's the other set of tires and wheels is only about $300.
