    Considering they do about 14mph in 2spd in factory trim I bet somewhere around 35-40 if you could get the drive motors to last long enough to keep you going.


    That short of wheel base, unpredictable steering, and no suspension could be quite a ride.

    I figure that might actually hit the 20 MPH you figure your Gehl could hit with bigger snow tires.

    44" tall truck tires on "D" series Deeres will get to 18 mph. Those would likely get to 25 mph. Yes they can be interesting to steer at that speed. Too much tire and not enough weight to plow snow though, if your wheel motors have enough torque.

    That much tire, I'd be worried about bouncing into the headliner, seat belt or not! It is bad azz looking though.

    Max speed for that one is 12mph in 2nd

    I don't think I would want to be in it in 2nd gear
    Should have the power to turn them at 99hp
