Hi everyone. I'm new here and to tractors. I have placed an order for an lx3310 with oversized r14 tires, and have no clue as to how wide the back tires are from left to right. I need that info to match up implements. Can someone please help me with that?

Also, I was hoping someone could explain why the front loader specs 1067lbs at pin, but if the numers 535 are the kg's it can pick up, it's about 100 lbs shy. Anyone care to enlighten me on that? :)

Thanks for any and all replies!

I have the LX 2610 with the oversized R14's. Love them, good choice. 60" implements will cover the tire width just right.

Man, thank you sooo much for the quick response! I just had them switch the 72" box blade to a 60" before it shipped. The dealer said I could swap them out if it was too big, but I would lose time and probably the difference in money. I just hope I don't want spacers on it at some point. :) Can you by any chance tell me how wide it is from rear left to rear right?

Also, how would you rate the stability with the tires on slight slopes, and would you say that they "balloon" up and look abnormal?

LA535 = 535 kg lift capacity at pivot pin full height.

Yes, I understand that. However, Kubota's own spec sheet says that the LA535 loader is able to pick up 1067 lbs. at pivot pin....if you convert 535kg to lbs. it would be 1179.47lbs at pivot pin, not 1067lbs.

I won't be back with my tractor for another week, so hopefully someone else can get you a precise measurement.
Stability is fine. I've worked my tractor hard, commercially, since I bought it with zero issues. I see many reviews mentioning ballooning with the R14's, but I feel it's a non-issue. They do have a rounder profile than an R4. After running the R14's, I would not consider an R4 tire unless most of my work was on pavement.
While I always recommend avoiding side sloping whenever possible, your tractor will hold a slope further than you're comfortable with. Full disclosure, my rear tires are weighted and I've got 20+ years moving dirt with heavy equipment, so my butt-meter is pretty well calibrated.

LOL. I appreciate the disclaimer! :) I am planning on putting rim guard in both rear tires...should add about 310 lbs. to each I believe. Thanks for the input!

No you arent reading the asterick on that spec sheet.

* = With 2 lever quick coupler (ie the SSQA mount). So that spec is at the front of the SSQA mount, NOT actually the pivot pin that the mount attaches to. The actual pivot pin lift is 1179 as I indicated.
