8850jd.
What Differentials does the 8850 run? Are they exclusive to J.D. or are they made by another manufacturer. They must have been quite a tough unit.

They were brought over from mining side of Deere, my brother looked it up as he works in Deere..

I want to spread the tires to cover 30 inch rows. Just wondering if I can move the mounting point out a little to make that happen... I know they are big but will be mounting saddle tanks on the front of the tractor, and need to know if it can handle it..
About the same weight of a heavy blade.. Just wondering

I think both If I remember right the blade was like 18 or 20 ft wide it had bolt on extensions on both sides. He took the blade off for field work but still had the big mounting frame hanging under the unit. I would guess weighs 1500lbs or more
