    I got along alright with my B2910 with loaded tires. When I got my L4400 I was very paranoid the first couple trips into the timber. But now I realize it was the size difference that made me nervous. It also has loaded tires and my tires are set out to approximately 70" outside measurement on R4s. Like you, I'm used to it now and would say it's very stable.

    I haven't measured mine, but I had them set all the way out before delivery and recommend that to anyone working on hills.

    I agree on size often making one seem more tippy.
