According to some parts books I looked at a Hi Floation Kit is referred to for the LBH, but with different Part #s.
C-22307 644/46
C-26907 648


Could any one tell me what it consists of and what is the differences?

As I understand, the standard loader tractor came with 15" rear rubber in the 8:00 size. Apparently, the loader/backhoe could be had this way too but..I've never seen one.

The "flotation kit" referred to putting wide 12" rims in place of the 15" rims along with some very fat bar tread tires. In order to use that tire/rim combo, special axle shafts were created that moved the flange several inches out from the normal flanges. This put added strain on the housing so extra gussets were added to the casting. These housings were used only on the LBH models at that time.

They may have increased the front tires as well to provide added flotation in soft ground conditions.

If my front tires are wider for the flotation kit, the regular units must be on bike tires...

Just regular loader front tires on my LBH. The reals are 26-12x12 bar tread. Real grippy in snow, and they do a good job of not sinking too bad on grass if its fairly dry...
