Never hurts to look good when doing it!

Nice wheels. I hope you can go fast enough to get out of your own mud storm before it falls back down your neck.

Thanks for posting. I now realize how I can write off my new to me rotary ditcher that I just bought from my son. It hung around the old man cave last fall for a few hours while I surgically removed some of its exploded cylinder bits from its sump, so I know it's all good to go. I just have to make twice as many passes as that Can-Am machine of yours. I think maybe I deserve a nice new bag full of safety apparel to run this thing too. You can really move dirt when you run a bunch of them together in the big ruts.

That is quite the warning on the side of those wheels, 10 km speed maximum and wearing a helmet and only for ag use, they certainly covered all the basis !. How does it feel going for a rip down the road or have you yet.

I laughed at that too, 10km, most people can run faster then that. I guess it absolves them of literally everything.
It's quite a bit more rough than regular tires, they weigh about double also., quite cold so only got it up to 40km/hr.
There is a little bit of slop in the bolt holes as they are a little oversize, so I don't see them being great at speeds, but at least the pattern holes are counter sunk so acorn nuts can somewhat centre the rim, but obviously not perfect.
I think they should do the trick.

Quite a bit of a different idea as a ditching rig than mine but if it works!

Now guys, not to be a wet blanket, but you have your permits, right???


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
