    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

    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.
