    They're some odd dishes in the last picture of the 654 County?

    Not sure what you mean, exactly, coz I don't believe I've ever seen a County 654 in the round, but I presume you mean the wheel centres. Are they set so that the wheels are as far inboard as possible, and if so is this not standard?

    Inspecting the said pic closely, is the left hand cabin door blocked by the front part of the mudguard?

    Ooops, forgot the word "wheel"




    The dishes are unusual having the cutouts and then the edges rolled over like that. Looks like they have the HD rims though with seriously rolled over edges to stop cracking.

    Not surprised you forgot "wheel", when your brain is upside down as it is

    rounded for "bump steering" off trees as it travels in the woods?

    I think extra strength to prevent cracking is the main thing, the curved edge would obviously be an advantage when up against things and it seems to assist with getting tyres on and off on the few instances where that design of rim was present.

    Our old CAT/Claas challenger had the early type rear drive rims less the rolled edge and there were plenty of cracks creeping into the rim from the outer edge- a common fault with high hours especially if working heavy kit with the rear linkage. Our recent MT755C replacement has the later drive rims with the rolled edge as per the style above so that should rule out cracking in the future although our drillman moans about it holding dirt in which scours the paint away
