Looks fun. Knobbies aren't all that great in the mud, but great for banging around on dry days. They're kinda bouncy.

oh i don't know about that, if it's the really thick peanut butter mud then yes they pack up pretty quick, but , and this is only my experience, with the thinner sloppier mud they seem to do decent, i'm actually surprised at the fact it looks like it's sitting perfectly level with the 22son back and the stock 13s up front

Well, from my experience, I can tell you nothing.

Those are actually 15's on the front.

Did you roll it on that quick romp or something? The grille looks offset quite a bit.

Stock brakes work with fresh pads and enough leverage. You tend to have to replace brake pads often if you get them working well, extra force makes them wear quickly.

Now hydro brakes, unless something is broken, they always work good. The only hydro I had a problem with was the Craps-man and it had a broken spring and a stuck cotter pin.

You must be using stock brakes on your 820. I've never had a tractor with an 820 that hadn't already had the brakes stolen, so I don't know they might alright. But the MM went drowned because of the crappy MST stock brakes. Those pads were brand new too. And, they worked right before the time they went under. So now, I haven't used my brakes in a month and I'll probably just remove them and put them on something they work on. The MM has had no brakes since it snowed. I just downshift to stop. Whatever isn't capable of locking up the wheels at full speed, well I consider that crappy.

Agreed. I just got my first 633a mower and the brakes worked perfect even after it sat for like 10 years.

Man that poor cylinder wall is pretty rough. Does that have one of those Nikki carbs with the cast aluminum bowl held on with two machine screws? I'm not a fan of those, the seals in them can be a pain. At least they have been for me, haha.
