I have never thought my 790 was unstable but I finally got around to turning my wheel to the "wide" position, and man is it nice. The tractor is much more sure footed. With the FEL and big loads on rough terrain you can really feel it. Much better.

Now don't ask me how it felt when I dropped the wheel trapping three fingers betwwen the axle flange and the center cutout of the rim! OUUUCCHH!Smile

Ouch! As the doc said, if it hurts when you do that don't do that. Smile

I am very glad I did the wheels, even with the mishap. The worst part was after I smashed and cut my fingers I had a tractor sitting up in they are by the crled FEL with no wheels on so I HAD to go finish.

The problem was I really needed a second set of hands, the axle kept flopping around and the rim kept slipping off that little lip on the flange before I could get a bolt threaded to hold it. Then I got the great idea of spinning the flange a little to get the holes lined up and I slipped .

It's probably a good thing the loader didn't leak down while you were off fixing your hand or you'd likely have much more to say. I believe I would have blocked those axles and used a bottle jack to make small height adjustments. With some luck, a wheel can be leaned against the flange and the flange still can be rotated to get one or more lugs started on top. Then, the axle can be jacked up slightly so the lower part of the wheel will go to the flange. The rest of the lugs line up with little encouragement--probably easier said than done though.

I'm fairly ouchless right now myself. Last night at fire crew training one of the guys couldn't pull start a fire pump because he got his hand mashed between a 6" limb and a log skidder. One of the hardest things in this buz seems to be keeping track or where our hands and feet are. Feet have it easy but I don't imagine steel fingered gloves would work very well for starting bolt threads.

Scott, sorry to hear of your mishap with the mashed fingers. Hope is was not too serious. I have been thinking about doing what you did with my rear tires but the owners manual (if I read it correctly & wouldn't be the first time I didn't) Wink yeah right states that I would gain only about an inch and a half. Not really worth the effort especially in view of the fact that I have loaded rear tires. I am gonna check with the dealer about this and see what they say about how much width I would gain. I know exactly what you mean. That narrow tire width does not inspire alot of confidence on a slope does it? Smile I would love to get another 6" - a foot width. Even 4 or 5 " would be nice.

Ken, what is your take on what the manual says? I believe you have the same tires I have?

Chief, when I read that section of the manual I reached the same conclusion as you did, that you'd only gain an inch or two in width. The inconvenience of having the valve stems on the inside didn't seem worth it for such a small gain. To be clear for those that don't know we're talking about R4's with the non-adjustable rims here. Adjustable rims are another story.

Must be some sort of cosmic cop karma thing. Last year I crushed the "driving finger" on my right hand. Whacked it so hard it split open and needed 6 sutures to close it.

While I'd like to say that I feel your pain, I think I am still feeling mine, so I'll check back later So Sad

F350, do you have fluid in your tires?

Chief I have a 4400 with turfs on the stamped wheels when I reversed mine it seems like 2" each side. I'd have to look it up for sure.

2" does not not sound like much until you operate across a slope. Its a world of difference.

I do not fiddle with tire pressures it is set For a no load operation (except the weights) and left alone. The hoe squats the tires fairly well but it's not on there all day every day.

You guys don't know what pain is :>! Last year I embedded my new German butcher knife into the top of my index finger, only thing that stopped it was the fact that my fingernails are tough. Still no feeling in the end of the finger. I don't brag about that one, I am a stickler for safety but thought a shortcut to save dirtying the cutting board was appropriate at the time.
