What are the advantages or disadvantages to swapping the drive tires on a 9770 so the tread is backwards.

Wondering if it might help backing out of a wet spot.

Thanks

We've always done that to our Gleaners. You'll almost always be able to back out of anything you can drive into.

You are hard pressed to find a combine of any color here that doesn't have the tires turned backwards. As said above, you can back out of wet spots and they also wear far better if you do run them on the road which is common here too.

Yep. Good for backing out of wet spots, but not much good for climbing hills if you have them. Braking ability could also be compromised.

They are backwards on graincarts because they are not a drive wheel and clean out better. I cannot say I have ever in my life seen a combine with the front tires on backwards.
