 Mowing In 4WD

I mow 7 hilly acres. Mowing much easier in 4WD. Less spinning with not as much tire damage. Does it hurt to run tractor in 4WD most of the time?

 Mowing In 4WD

David, When I had a B7100, I used the 4WD nearly all the time mowing my pasture for the same reasons you mentioned. Before I bought it, I talked to a dealer than rents a lot of equipment and he said they left the rental units in 4WD all the time. Now that I have a B2710, I don't need to use the 4WD, and don't, mowing my pasture. However, it's my opinion that you have nothing to worry about unless you're using the 4WD on a dry, hard surface like paved roads.

 Mowing In 4WD

David,
Bird pretty much sums it up. Unless you have a clutched transfer case, like the ones found on an AWD vehicle, 4WD in any vehicle should always be used on a surface that will allow tire slippage while turning, such as grass, dirt, snow, etc...Under these conditions, I doubt you will ever be faced with problems. Using 4wd on Concrete, pavement however puts incredible stress on the drivetrain and will wear tires much quicker. Although the tire issue will almost seem minor after a bill for the eventual gear replacements. Sounds like your doing everything right Dave. 4WD is safer on hills anyway, because the drivetrain ties the rear brakes to the front as well.. Remember to wear your seatbelt Smile
