 Turf Tractor Tires vs Industrial R4 ?

What is the true advanatge of a turf tire over an industrial tire? Unless I am on a golf course I see no use for them.

An industrial tire in a residential yard would be fine as long as you take a little extra care in your turns...

Am I missing something on turf vs. industrial?

The turf will give you more traction on ice then an industrial tire, it wil not leave an imprint on turf. For the most part it will give you more traction then an industrial tire.

Depending on the exact turf to industrial the industrials normally are more money and for good reason. The industrial tires normally have far more ply's built in and are a tougher tire. Not only do they carry a load better but they give a rougher ride on hard ground.

I like the compromise of the industrial tires. The two tractors I owned with turf tires were definitely good in the snow, at least until the grooves became impacted with material.

But for all around use with loader, mower, blade and etc it is tough to beat those industrial tires for the homeowner IMHO.

The one tire I liked the best came with my B7100. It was sort of a cross between a turf and a mud tire. Never have seen them on anything since.

The other place a turf excels over an Industrial (R4) tire is on sand or very loose soils.

In very dry conditions an R4 will tear up overly dry browned out turf, where in almost every case a turf tire will leave it untouched.


Best of luck.

Thanks Art, that is what I recall now that you mention the name of them. I wonder why they are offered only on the smaller units.

What is a good price on new turf tires and rims for a NH TC24DA. I've got a line on all 4 and might be driving a couple of hours for them.
