Well they normally are working in dirt/mud, does it transport by towing, if so then you need a roadworthy wheel on it. You could try chains when it is off the road that way you can remove for towing.

I think it was originally owned by a Gas Company that uses them mostly in the street...it does get towed on the road...I thought chains also

Are the pads on the extendable arms flat on the bottom? He might also try modifying them to have a more aggressive nature to prevent movement, something like this maybe:

The stabilizers are ok..just when he goes to reposition the unit...he is slipping.....he is using it to dig up fuel tanks....which are usually under a lawn somewhere on the properties so...he makes a mess with loose dirt and the rain...causing loss of traction

Those things usually get moved around the job site by pushing, pulling, and lifting/swinging with the hoe. They only need tires to move longer distances.

Not sure what tire size it is, but you could put an LT rated A/T tire on it if you have fender clearence and can find a good size fit

It actualy is self propelled
So is my SCUT. I still use the hoe to move it around rather than swing the seat around to operate the tractor.

When you're straddling a trench that terminates at a building at either end, there is no choice but to use the hoe to get the tractor moved to one side of the trench.
