    At least for that price, you get all four.

    They are worth every penny. We would not run a loader without them any more.Thumbs Up

    They really do work well! Major difference from the standard tires especially on the smaller lighter loaders.

    9k. Ouch. Bigger equipment, bigger expenses.

    That 644E is the last of the 7 loaders and 4 tractors to get its new shoes.

    Wow I could never make any money if I had to spend $9,000 on tires I can't even imagine that I stick to my trucks and skidloaders! But I guess you gotta pay to play!

    I bet.

    Takes money to make money.

    I will more than likely be getting some for the front of my 'bota when the OEM tyres are worn out, just like Paul has in the one video of difficult drives.

    How well do they last? I need new tires for one of our loaders.. $9k seems cheap. Radials are usually around that price.. I would think these would be more.

    They're Chinese - say HILO on the sides. New radials, not recaps.

    We bought them from Centre de Pneus D.D. in Terrebonne, Québec - (450) 477-6444. They say they don't sell too many Michelins or Nokians since they're twice the price of these ones.

    Have no idea how long they'll last - let you know in a couple of years. Obviously, our machines are used only on snow.

    The installation was included in the price. The only big piece of equipment the two guys used was the Hiab to get them off their truck. You don't use a "tire-mounting machine" on these ones. There's a retaining ring on the rim which you have to drive off and then the tire "just slides right off", depending on how many years it's been on there. :laughing:

    Like Neige says, let us know where to get them at half this price. I'm sure your supplier would love the extra business. Does he install on machines in Canada?

    Don't pay attention to GV, he's full of it as usual.
