I just signed on a deal today for a TC24DA with 60" MMM-rear discharge and a 12LA loader with R4 tires. Trading in "something orange". Since 80% of my use is finish mowing 5+ acres both hills and flat, and 10% being tilling and brush hogging, should I stay with the turf tires instead? In central Ohio we get a minimum amount of snow, so snow plowing is at a minimum. Not much mud or "dirt" type loader work.

Turf tires are the optimum tire for grass mowing and leaving the least amount of foot print. In your case since you will be doing some brush cutting as well as some other misc. tasks; I think the R-4's would be a good compromise tire for what you want to do. I have R-4's on my 4410 and is leaves a minimal foot print on the lawn and usually only if the ground is soft after a good rain. Your call; you could go either way and I think you would be happy with either. The turf tires are gonna cost ya a few bucks more though.

R-4 also refered to as "industral" is the best bet,,it is passive enough on turf,,but somewhat agressive enough im mud and snow,,these tires cost a bit more,,but are usually worth it,,if you need a BITE tire,,go with the ag tire

I have a JD 4410 have used both turfs and R4s. No comparison on mowing...turfs win hands down. For other things except mud, turfs work well also. I feel they grip in snow better than the R4s also due to more rubber contact...R4s have too many flat spots that make them like "slicks." R4s look nicer and normally have a slightly heavier sidewall for extreme work, but for your situation, I would go with the turfs...without question.

If you're not doing any garden plowing or work in the woods, I'd go with turfs...for the same money.

If the turfs cost very much extra, I'd stick with R4's. You may find that they are close enough in performance that price is the deciding factor.

Good luck,
Bill

DKL,,not to argue,,I still think the R-4 is the best all around tire,,it wont "slick" up as quickly as the turf in mud and snow,,(and it looks GREAT!)

Well as of today, I went for the turfs. Main reason is most of the time I'm finish mowing. Also the rear turf tires are much wider and give a wider stance which is what I need around here because of the hills. Dealer said the turfs are heavier when loaded than R-4's. He also said if I did not like them that I could trade even for R-4's down the road. I need to mow most of the time in 4WD so I figure I'll get less "scuffing" with turfs while turning. Any opinions?

My biggest complaint about the R4's is tearing up the turf when turning, even in 2wd.

Good call, I'd say.

Bill

I think you will do just fine and be satisfied with the turf tires. I have had both and found each type to be more than acceptable for the tasks you are doing.

I have Turf's on my TC33D with 72 inch MMM. I'm pleased with the performance cutting the lawn and just as pleased with the traction provided while plowing deep snow. I'm sure you won't be disappointed in the turf tires for your needs.
