BEFORE YOU COMMENT ON FLIPPING TRACTORS AND WEIGHTS AND SUCH, YOU SHOULD REALLY LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT THEM FIRST. Being the grandson of a fourth generation farmer and farming all my life, I will tell you weight on tractors is for traction, not to keep them from flipping over. cloride in the tires and front weights on a front wheel assist tractor are for traction. In my experience with 6x6 driving I could have used alot more psi on the trails and places I ride, slippery clay surfaces and such. Not to say psi wont sink you in some stuff, but more most of the time would help me out. I put 100 lb. bags (2) of sand in the back of my bigfoot to plow snow, and it helps considerably, we just recieved about 15 inches and I have been plowing for 2 days straight. Maybe the terrain is different in montana, but in michigan and indiana psi helps more than it hurts, from my experience. some people who haven't owned and rode many hours on both max and argo should really keep their opinions to themselves, you cannot judge a machine from a brochure, and so called expert opinons are coming from mouths that have not owned and rode both. abviously doug has or has the common sense to know each machine is different and each will be better/different than the other depending on the use.
