These tires offer excellent traction on harder surfaces, such as construction lots, and are less aggressive on grass than an R1 tire. An R4 tire is more aggressive than an R3 tire, however, it is less aggressive than an R1 tire. The depth of the R4 tread is approximately 70 percent deeper than that of an R1 tire. Compared to R4 tires, R1 tires are very soft and elastic.
The R4 tires, on the other hand, are quite firm. This is very important for security reasons. R4 tires, also known as industrial tires, are wide, durable tires designed primarily for use on hard surfaces such as pavement and gravel. Our third and final test will be with the new R14 tire.
As we said before, the R14 is supposed to be the hybrid between an R4, the aggressiveness in the center of the line, and an R1, the really aggressive tire. It should be somewhere in between, being a little friendlier on the grass, but still giving us that traction. Let's take a look at this and see how it works. It's difficult to calculate overall efficiency individually because they're perfect for different jobs.
A variant of the R1 tire, known as the R1W, is designed for use in especially wet and wet conditions. Always consult the equipment operator's manual and follow the safety instructions before operating or repairing any tractor or equipment, or attempting any task. Because tractors tend to put more weight on the rear tires than on the front tires, the rear tires must be strong. The R4 front tire requires a wider wheel than the R1 tire, so measure the width of the wheel before making your selection.
Because of the difference in tire diameter, the rotation ratio of larger tires can increase by a factor of one. If you have R1 tires on the front and the bucket is empty (not the loader), the tractor will become very unbalanced. R1 tires, also known as agricultural or agricultural tires, are the standard tires for workaholics used on agricultural tractors. This makes R4 tires a great choice when working with a front loader or forklift accessory.
We're going to tear down three of Kubota's B series tractors, one with R4 tires, one with the new R14 and another with this zig-zag hybrid pattern that I've had for a while, connect them to the load cell and measure exactly what the difference in traction is between these tire options. We're going to come back here and reconnect the bar lawn tire here because these results are very different from what I expected.
