We followed this tractor for a couple hours on the trails, and it ran great. Ran through some deep stuff, and stuck in some really deep stuff. He was getting on it for some hills.

Hoping that the 20 inch front tires to replace the 22 inch front will help me keep my front end down a little better I still need to get a little more experience under my belt for the hill climbs but I'm getting better I'm no creepy crawler though.

Stretch after watching your mowers for the day I'm going to be building my 11 year old something similar out of one of the craftsman I have in the weeds.

nice! I have the big tire problem, I have 21" on the front of my craftsman gt and even with the twin cyl engine the front likes to go up in the air. great for making trails threw brush, bad for climbing hills. 25" bear claw rears and a heavy foot don't help me lol

Are you running any liquid in your front tires I put two gallons of RV antifreeze in each tire and it helped tremendously.

I found these 20 inch tires brand new on eBay for 1499 with free shipping each so I'm definitely going to try I'm out since I have less than $30 in two brand new tires

I've only ridden mine once with the weight in the tires and I could tell a huge huge difference I could probably put a little bit more in there and not have to change tire sizes but my fronts are almost bald and I got the 20 for so cheap

I plan to. But the ones on the rear work great for all around trail riding. They climb rocks, logs and hard pack way better than the tires on toms. But he destroys me in mud

I want to have 2 sets ready to go based on the trails we are riding

Have a set of 25 inch woolyboogers on 10" 4 lug wheels I am going to be putting on the rear for the all mud days.

Here are the beginnings of the new wheel centers.

These are going on the rear. Not going to effect the turning.

Fronts are already recentered,no turning issues

Oops, i ment that about the new tires on the front.

You also said torch table, as in plasma or oxy torch with a circle guide? Looks near perfect.
