Yes i had over size tires, i forget what size they were though.
No i didn't have tracks.
The problem with most water is, that if there's a small lip, or even the smallest bank that you have to climb out onto, the wheel splashes water up, and they just won't grip well enough to pull you out. I all so used another brand 6 wheel drive, and it did have tracks. I would rate it the same in climbing out of ponds. Tracks do help some in mud, and snow though.
They will pull a pretty good load, but you won't be pulling any bigger logs with it. It will work with a log arch, but so will my 4wd 4wheeler. My 4wheeler gets into the woods better because it's a lot narrower, and i don't bust up the new growth trees as bad!
The pull behind mowers have the problem of takeing a huge amount of room to get them turned around. Other garden tools can be replaced with a tractor and quality Rotovator (tiller) like the one Howard Rotovator co. sells.
I like a tractor for logging, and a 4wd 4wheeler for the rest. There's just NOTHING made that does it all!!! I even had a Cushman Trackster for a few years. It's by far the best of the non-4wheelers, but it had it's own set of problems!!
