Probably explains why I nearly buried my car driving on the tracks the excavator left while he was digging my well. The car weighs a lot less than the excavator, but has a contact patch many times smaller.

    Wide is the only possible tool to get area when there is a limit on diameter. Small dia tires cannot have a long contact patch unless they are flat. Larger dia tires can, and this gives a better ability to roll over an obstacle. In either case, wide or narrow, greater or lesser dia, the machine weight is spread over an equal area governed by inflation pressure and carcass stiffness. The soft carcass turf with inherent non disturbing tread carrying light load and run at low inflation to increase area fits everything needed on a golf course. Even tho pressure per unit area on the ground may be identical, any added width will limit rutting as described previously.

But then again, my front tires are as large as many CUT rear tires and with a 3500 pound lift capacity, it will lift most CUTs off the ground.
    Do you have 12.4x24 front? I have 11.2x24 on the 7520. I have no squat problem at max 28psi with full bucket but thats considerably less than the lift capacity. I go up to 35 psi if Im carrying really heavy stuff.

    So why do farmers run duals to reduce soil compaction when they could mearly get by with lowering the psi

    There comes a limit due to tire squirm and sidewall buckling. A verry long patch is fine sitting still, but half flattened tires dont roll so well ... nor last. Duals let you half the inflation and still run with good tire stance.

    I was wondering how bad is your tractor on your lawn with the R4's?
