    4 wheel steering on the ace! Hydraulic drives?

    Hey polaris, what about 4 wheel steering on the ace! Low range only? Old news for kobota ,john deere,honda etc., lawn tractors all have had it for years.
    Hydraulic drive cvt? Differentials ? , hydraulic drives at the wheels? No cvt, no clutch, no belt just thinking outside the box

    with the weight, heat, complexity, and cost I don't think hydraulics are a viable option for this kind of machine, at least if you want to have any speed. If you want a low speed heavy towing workhorse then heck yeah, but as you stated, its already been done.
    With the torque of hydraulic motors they are great for low speed applications but have some real issues at high speed and when the speed needs to vary a lot and often.
    I do love hydraulics myself though. I have a 1974 wheelhorse D160 that is hydrostatic drive and has hydraulics for the 3-point and mower deck (or front blade etc). My zero turn Exmark mower is of course hydrostat drive. I also have a 80's vintage Liftall offroad 8k forklift with a triple stage mast that goes 30' high and uses the same hydraulic system for the steering.

    Wheel Horse?????? I got a Horse myself, a 73 16 Auto. Its my small snow removal machine with a plow and blower. If all works out with the first Ace next season the second Ace is going to take its place for snow removal with blade, blower, and cab.

    yeah the wheel horse stuff is great...back when they used good thick metal to build things...will the Ace (or anything else) still be usable in 40 years?

    Hi all you ACE people, Im a new Ace 570 owner and im looking for some advise to up grade my tires. i want to go a little wider and a size taller. im looking for a little more stability on the corners. i don't really go fast i just like to cruse around, but i don't feel comfortable going around corners. so with that being said can somebody give me a couple idea's on wider and or one size taller or / maybe spacers ???
    ive been looking at the Maxxis Bighorn's if you all think that might be a good way to go, if so then what size would you all suggest ???,
    i don't want to flip over. i already lost an arm in a motorcycle accident, i only have one left.so PLEASE help.
    Thank you all VERY much.

    Woody ,
    get some new rims
    I like 14 inch with 4+3 offset in front and 4+4 offset rears (7inch + 8 inch)
    the radial clones like pro comps or others are as good as the bighorns without the inflated price
    go with 9 inch fronts and 11 inch rears get the 26 inch tires ,no rubbing ,perfect fit with new rims

    you will end up just a tad over 50 inch width but I havent found a gate yet that I can't fit through
