    Set up stabilizers for bush hogging

    When bushogging, should I set my telescoping stabilizers so there is no play or should I put it in the notch that allows a little movement. I’ve never had telescoping stabilizers before. My tractor is an l4701 thanks in advance.

    Front tire width set up

    Thanks for the input. there are a couple reasons- one is thatI trailer my tractor a lot and I have the rear tires on the next to widest setting so I was thinking I’d have a little more even line when loading. The second reason is that I understand the conversation over the pivot points and...

    Front tire width set up

    Woth R1 tires Is it safe to swap sides with my front tires so that a wider stance is achieved or will that mess up the front end. I would keep the tread in the right direction by switching sides but the wheel disc would be mounted to get the wider stance.

    Tiller or disc harrow

    Tiller just because I normally plant food plots in late August and ground is hard and dry. The tiller cuts better than the disk in those conditions for me. I still have a 7’ disc and like it fine. Cheaper for sure just not as good under my most usual application

    Rotary mower size

    In follow up the specs say my 4701 has 39.3 hp at the pto(gear drive) An 84” mower should require 35hp at 5hp/ foot. Am I thinking about that right or is that cutting it to close. I sure don’t want to break anything

    R1 tire availability

    They do. All expenses on them. So I’m ok with how it works out except that I don’t have the tires yet lol. I just thought it was odd and didn’t know if it was localized to my dealer or not.

    R1 tire availability

    Fortunately there was no damage. The put R4 on and wrote that when they get r1 in stock I get to swap out at no cost

    R1 tire availability

    The top of the fender is where I understood the issue to be. But the dealer framed it as a Kubota issue. Seems odd.
