 B-Series Tires and Stability

One last time on my 2710 vs. 7500 decision: My key issue was stability on hills. Wanted the 7500 for price, bought felt the 2710 would be more stable-and maybe even the only one that could handle mine.Found a neighbor who has a 15 year old B7200, and hills considerably more severe than mine. He says he has no problem over the years traversing any of them in any direction! 2 key questions:- He uses a 5' Woods rear mower, and I need a belly mower (trees). Would that make a difference in performance on hills?? He said it actually more stable without the mower in his opinion-would guess a belly mower would be even better (weight concentrated in the center, and low). Appreciate thoughts and experiences here.- His tires seem much wider: 31 x 13.5 x 15 on the rear, vs. the brochures 'standard' of 9.5 - 16 on the B7500 (not exactly sure what the turf tires are). Fronts are 20.5 x 8 x 10, whereas the 'standard' on the B7500 are 6 - 12. Need a decoder ring here. The only dimensions that measured out accurately on his are the 13.5, and 8 which were widths (rear and front). Rims appear the same. Thoughts on effect of tires between these appreciated, as well as width of the rear turf tires on a B7500.Th tractor did the road I'll be doing for 10 years, again w/o problems-both grading and snow. Has a 6 foot Woods r. blade.Again, would prefer the B7500 if it will do it for me ($4600 save). Found a great local dealer that is price competitive with ANY place I've checked-and he's willing to bring one over. Visited him last week, and feel very comfortable dealing with him-honest and willing to spend the time with a rookie. Was set to call to say bring the 2710, but now think the 7500 will do just fine. Again, thoughts appreciated!Thanks again to all, will let you know which I get (Saturday hopefully-if the one that he brings handles the hills, it will stay!)

The belly mower will definitly lower the center of graity IF YOU CARRY IT ON THE TRACTOR with the gauge wheels only barely touching the ground. If the mowing height is determined by gauge wheels, the weight of the deck is on them and not the tractor. I would regard the next most important factor as which tractor can have its wheels set the widest. For hills you want the maximum width possible. Tire sizes: The 31x13.5-15 rear is a turf size with the outside diameter of 31" width (at the top bulge) of 13.5 inches and mounted on a 15 inch diameter rim. The front 20.5x8-10 turf is 20.5 inches in diameter, 8 inches wide and on a 10 inch rim. The other tractor has bar tires (ag tires) The rear 9.5-16 is approximately 33.5 inches in diameter, 9.5 inches wide and on a 16 inch rim. The front 6-12 is approximaterly 22 inches in diameter, 6 inches wide and on a 12 inch rim.
