15.5" Wide Drive Wheels

31x1550x15x 8 ply wheels provide maximum traction and stability. This option is recommended when working in very soft or steep ground conditions.  When these are fitted the caster wheel is also raised. The outside width of the tyres do not change.

This option provides the best traction and stability. The engine must be upgraded to 21hp.

 sq15.jpg - large

Hydraulic wheel shift

The drive wheels are hydraulically extended and retracted for transport. Wheels are pushed out and held under pressure as the Squirrel is driven along (approx 10 metres). By switching a hydraulic valve, wheels are retracted in the same manner. This function is fast, safe and foolproof.
