    Predator yay or nay

    I have a Predator 212cc 6.5hp on my dump from seat collection system I purchased used 7 years ago. I was concerned so I bought a backup new with a coupon on sale for $56.00 to keep on the shelf. The original looked tired but I use Mobil 1 and check every time I use it. The Predator has...

    What tires should you get on a new Tractor, R1, R4, or Turf?

    I agree. This comparison is not exactly apples / apples but I went from a Kubota B1700 with R4's NOT loaded to an LX1026 with R14's loaded. For a short time the LX1026 tires were not loaded (3days). In those few days I found the LX1026 to leave more turf damage than the B1700 had with the...

    I have owned my last 2 wheel drive pickup

    I would be comfortable with any of those tread patterns.

    I have owned my last 2 wheel drive pickup

    No we could not find a tread pattern that was simaler to say a Nokia Nordman 7. something close to this tread pattern is what i have always had and would swear by. But if the tread just looks like a summer tire I would decline. I went with them originaly due to there use in rally racing on rear...

    Nokian does have very different tread pattern for heavier vehicles. A heavier one i looked at for a friend did not look like it would be good in the snow. That was for a heavy van about 5 years ago.

    What tires should you get on a new Tractor, R1, R4, or Turf?

    I will give my short amount of experience with R14's. I had a Kubota B1700 for over 20 years with r4's that were not good in the snow, so when I moved into an LX2610 I went with the standard size (not larger) R14's. Now I only have 29 hours on them but I find they are much better in the snow...

    Just bought a B2400–wanna make it right

    The line that is leaking if I remember correctly on my B1700, had issues for many and was replaced with a better made one. The leak is on the metal tube as it enters the larger metal banjo section.

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    Six ply makes me comfortable for loader work and snow removal. I no longer have a backhoe so super heavy weight is not a concern but turf tires were only 4 ply and I am treating myself to a grapple so i wanted at least 6 ply like my last tractor had. Most reviews say the r14's do well in snow...

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    Thank you That is a big load off of my mind. Going from R-4's to R-14's for traction, I did not want to give up durability. Thank you again. Now if the loader ever comes in for the tractor I will be thrilled.

    Waiting on LX2610 Rops

    I'm waiting on an LX2610 Rops with the smaller r14's. I'm trying to clarify how many ply the rear tires are. All the specs I can find say 6 but I would like to varify with someone that has received an LX2610 with the smaller r14's from the dealer. If this has already been stated i have not been...

    Should I say something

    Thank you all for the replies. I will just leave it alone with the hope that the issue was repaired and the tractor run many more years.

    Should I say something

    I do appreciate all the replies. I just hate to see someone get taken IF they are not fully informed. I hope the machine treats them well. I did my part being honest with the person I sold it to. Thank you
