At 315 lb. the Mud Commander weighs about the same as an 11.2x38 standard tire and wheel assembly.
The Mud Commander ships LTL frieght on a 4x4 pallet.
The Mud Commander's one-piece construction allows for a self-cleaning effect that keeps mud in the pivot track instead of pushing it out and making pivot tracks deeper.
The Mud Commander uses a rounded steel cleat to allow cushioning upon take-off to prevent undue stress on the drive-train. Unlike our competitors wheels that use sharp edged cleats without any cushion allowance which commonly causes premature gearbox failure.
The Mud Commander works on all brands/models of center pivots with an 8 bolt wheel pattern.
Yes, the Mud Commander comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
The Mud Commander is proudly made in the USA.
The increased stress from large diameter center pivot wheels on the wheel hub can be problematic so we added a reinforcing ring to prevent failure.

The Mud Commander is currently being tested on corner machines to determine performance.
The Mud Commander has been tested in sand, sandy loam, and clay soil types with great success.
The Mud Commander is 47-1/2 inches tall. Its diameter is similar to a standard 14.9 x 24" tire and wheel assembly. This is important to remember when calculating sprinkler timing charts.
The Mud Commander wheel will not rot in the sun like rubber tires, never go flat and only need to have the lug nuts torque checked once per year. "Never replace another tire again."
The Mud Commander self-cleaning design with round cleats prevents stress on pivot drive-train while keeping mud from being pushed out of the track. The Mud Commander also has no moving parts to fail.
We recommend you torque to 140 foot pounds. We also recommend checking torque once per year.
