 4110s and hill sides

Question from a newbee. Just got a used (74 hrs)4110 with 54" belley mower. I have a farm with some 25% and more grades. The 4110 is narrow. Will front and rear weights, along with the belly mower, lower the point of gravity to any worthwhile degree?

I used to do kind of the same thing with a 4410 and rear mount mower and front weights. I think the tread width is a bit wider than yours, but after a couple pretty good scares when a downhill side wheel went in a wash I gave the sidehills back to nature. Be carefull. Frank.

Are the tire center planes offset from the rim plane location (where the rim attached to the wheel hub)? If they are, you should set them at the widest position if not already so, this will lower the CG somewhat.

 4110s and hill sides

This tractor is for my wife. She wanted to help mow some grass at the farm. The wheels are turned out. Unfortunately JD doesn't make axle extenders for this model. I should mention that this is my smaller tractor. The really difficult hills I can tackle with my 5310 with axle extenders. I am just concerned about my wife not being able "read" the topography and wondered if anyone had used rear and front weights on the 4110. The other option is to pump calcium into the tires for more weight. Thanks for the info and the help. Any further suggestions will be very welcome.

From what it sounds like, that would be a good way to get a new wife, but ruin a nice tractor on the way. (that was meant to be a joke) If you like your wife, which I assume you do, let her mow the flat stuff.

I regularly mow shallow ditch banks with up to 45 degree incline. I mow perpendicular to the bank, mow only when dry, use a small lawn tractor with 46" or 54" deck, and sit on the fender that is on high ground. If the tractor were to tip, I can hop off and balance the weight of an 800lb. or less tractor or just let-er go. When off of the seat, the mower deck cuts off. If you try this on a deep ditchbank while drinking beer like my neice's husband did, you find an 800 lb. lawntractor on your chest with the blades turning and the engine running. This is not good!! It did bad things to the hood,grille and hour meter.

Fortunately, he has been fixed and can no longer reproduce!

Thanks for the info yooperpete. I will have to relegate her to the flatter land. In the outer bluegrass region of kentucky, there is not much of that. I will teach her to go up and down and not sideways. 4110s ought to be real easy operate that way. May go for the weights too.

The 5310 with axle extenders and wheels turned out hugs the hillsides like a big grasshopper. Can't beat it in this terrain. Tires are 8' apart.

Yes, going up and down the hill is the way to go. However, sometimes you have to go on a diagonal. We've had discussions about after market tilt meters. Wheel weights will definitely help. If you can attach front and rear ballast and place it real low is also helpful to keep your center of gravity down under.

Not to be critical of women, but they generally can get themselves in trouble. Women fall into (2) categories: afraid to do everything and not afraid when they should be! Men (atleast some) have a pucker factor (as Murf describes) that puts the fear of God in them when things don't seem right.

I've said it before, an' I'm gonna say it again.

The most dangerous part of a tractor is usually the 'loose nut behind the wheel'.

Operated correctly, and in accordance with good safety practises and common sense, these things are relatively safe and will go nearly anywhere.

However, (there's always one of those isn't there) one dumb manoeuvre, or a moment's inattention can be deadly.

Best of luck.

"Not to be critical of women, but they generally can get themselves in trouble. Women fall into (2) categories: afraid to do everything and not afraid when they should be!"

Yooberpete, you know as a female I can't let you get away with saying that without saying something.

The only reason women get into trouble is because they haven't had people show them ("women don't need to know that stuff"Wink yeah right or because every guy around them says "you can't do it!!!" and the woman becomes a nervous wreck.

I operate my FEL and BH confidently, but every time I try to ask a guy for a tip, he dismisses me. So, I just had to teach myself. And yes, women can have a "pucker" sensor, too.

jmiller606, send your wife my way! I'll teach her to love the tractor so much she's driving it to the mall.
