    Agrison 50hp

    Default Wide track tyre




    Swapped the two front tyres over & changed out the centre hubs on the rear.
    Makes it feel so much more stable.

    - Agrison 50hp?

    - Is that a locally disguised branding for Foton FT504?

    - After the wheel swap, are the front and the rear wheels still in line with each other?

    - Any concerns of a higher stress on the tractor, with the larger spacing between the wheel pairs?

    I think it may be a BOMR make.
    Yes the wheels are still in line.
    No I don't have any concerns of higher stress.Giving it a wider footprint of about 150mm (6 inches) shouldn't be a concern.
    I was more concerned of a roll over before.

    Lots of copies of the Foton's coming out of China trying to cash in on Foton's reputation.
    Companies like BOMR and Luzhong even allow you to order a tractor with a "Foton" bonnet as an option hence you thinking it was a Foton.

    I put the tires wide on my Jinma 284 about 8 years ago and over 750 hours, most of which is FEL work, and no ill effects. I make the tractor much more stable.

    I'm going to go wide on my 304 too when I get a chance. The tractor seems somewhat narrow, and I know spreading the tires will make it solid as a rock.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.

    Foton brand 4WD ute/pickup just went on sale in Aus, same company as the tractors I suppose. Website says that they use Cummins diesel motor
    Foton Australia official website

    Sorry for the off topic remark ...
    Can you get rear duals for your tractor?, all the chinese machines seem to have very skinny tires

    Skinny Tires? mmmmmmmmm
    I just abandoned ship a couple of hours ago when the aforementioned skinny rear tire went airborn while carrying a concrete pipe rigged over the FEL.
    Dropped the load which helped a little but still kept me in the air.Shut the engine down & put her in neutral,gently opened the upside door & jumped.
    I had a large tree just in front of me so I knew there was no danger to anyone else,it hit that then all 4 were on the floor again so I unhooked & came in at a different angle.
    Word of advice; If you have a 4 in 1 bucket,open it up & sling loads in close.
    I've actually lifted rear tires before with loads in the bucket which prompted me to do the tire swap thing for stability.

    Do you have a rear counterweight and fluid in those tires ..
    I have seen pics of chinese DongFeng tractors with rear duals, mite be too much stress on your machine but it may be safest option
    Keep it safe .. I enjoy your posts!
