Dennis,

I am leaving shortly for Empire Farm Days. I tried to send you an e-mail but the system seems to be inoperative. I will take some e-pics for the site if you care to use them.

I don't know if anyone else attended this event, but there is quite an array of compact tractors including brands I have not seen before. I didn't see any there I would not like to own. One think that stood out was a Kubota and a NH that had HUGE turf tires on the front and back and included a belly mower. I don't know what you would us these for except a very large, wet lawn. I can't imagine they would get very good traction for other uses with such a light footprint. The Cub Cadets appeared to be a composite body now, much like the NH. They were not a bad looking machine except the tires for the most part looked too small for the tractors. It was great walking around that huge field with Mennonite families, farmers and just decent common folks. Seeing the Amish carrige stuck in the traffic jam at the entrance says it all. These people are what this country is about and what keeps it great, not the loud obnoxious minority special interest groups that are trying to tear us apart. God Bless rural America!

Cutter those large tires are for turf farms and golf coarses. As much as many of the new tractor brands are just copies of some old ones some are totally new to the market.

I believe what you wittnesses are Galaxi Brand Turf Tires. Art Is correct on the profile of the users. They are a brand all of their own, the company purchased the technoligy from BF Goodrich a few years ago.

They do give a large footprint in turf, greens espesially.

They are a little pricey, and are tougher than you may think, but they do have some problems with stability with FEL's and traction on mud.

They are not for the typical compact buyer, but if I was presented with them on a used model, I would not let them scare me.

Golf courses had crossed my mind but I wondered why they would put 40hp tractors with 7'or 8' decks when they all have those huge mowing machines that almost float on water and take a ten or so foot cut besides turning on a dime. Didn't make sense to me.

Cutter, you said it right by almost float on water, I think these will if anything could. Check there tire sizes and you will not normally see anything like what you looked at on the big finish mowers on the golf coarses.
