    I am already at the max of 30 psi. The problem is John Deere (as well as the other brands I looked at) install wimpy 4 ply tires with a rating of only 1320 lbs. each for a tractor that that weights 4500 lbs. and a loader that can lift over 2500 lbs. The math doesn't add up. They could use the 10 ply version of the same tire that is rated at 2200 lbs. each. But that is still short of the 6 ply R4 rated at 3500 lbs. each. I had both R4 and Turfs for my last tractor and liked having the load capacity of the R4 when doing heavy loader work, but they were worthless on the lawn and in the snow compared to the turfs. There seems to be very little available that can do both heavy work and have good traction in the snow or on grass.

    They are most likely Nokian TRI 2. I posted a link to them a few weeks ago:

    Would like something like the TRI 2 in a 10.5R20 for my Unimog. That would be a perfect tire for me.

    Thanks for the info, Marcus. I will check into them for my tractor. I just want to make sure they have the loader capability neccessary for my applications.

    Here is a picture of my BX2350 clearing the road in front of my house from a snow storm we had a couple of years ago. Some of the drifts were over 3 feet deep, and the rear blade was pretty useless, the end loader did all the work.

    This is my current setup. Tried the bucket with the first snow fall and ended up using the blower instead. A buddy gave me an 7.5' arctic blade that had been hacked up some. Ended up cutting 6" of each side and rebuilt the lower half of the blade. Built the quick attach and have been waiting for the snow ever since. The blower is 60" wide.

    I've never seen a Razor with a plow. I bet that's fun. Does the RZR have locking rear diff? Those two machines together make a nice combo.

    I didn't know they made plows for RZR's either until the guy I bought it from said it went with it. It works well. I'm pretty sure the RZR has no rear diff, it's all locked up in the back. Not sure about the front, normally they are on-demand 4 wheel drive but a switch on the dash allows the front drive to be locked in full-time.

    The blower works well as long as you don't rush it. It needs some wings to make it as wide as the tractor.

    That looks like fun, if not too cold, etc.

    The industrial tires(rear) on my Mahindra 2516 are rated for 2870lbs and are 6 ply. The fronts are rated for 1000 and are 4 plys.
    The loader is rated for 1050?? That does seem odd doesn't it!

    525 lbs per tire, two 1000lb capacity tires gives you a 2000 lb capacity.
