Is it not the tyres that are important just as much as the size of the tractor. We have a 4t tractor and an 8t tractor. The lowest pressure in the tractor tyres of the 4t one is around 12psi, where as the 8t tractor has its tyres at 8psi. I know the 4t tractor would make the deepest impression in the soil.

at the end of the day snipe axle weigh is what it is 60 ton Bert harvester on 6 800 or 1000 tyres is still 10 ton a tyres. . How far down is the compaction

We now run duals in dryer conditions to help consolidation and remove then in sticky conditions as I now believe the more soil run on is more soil damaged, or a 600 tyre at 8 psi will do more damage than a 400 at 12 psi.

So using that example,
a 14t grain trailer is better on super singles than 560/22s, I know an extrem example.
I think I will stick to my 710/42 vf @ 7psi thanks.
