Pulled the new tires today, using the box scraper......man do they bite and dig!  Leveled off some water line trenches at the farm and spread some gravel behind the new shed.  Ran out of white rock, so blended in some asphalt millings (black "gravel").

Steve - Nice SHOP!  How big of an area is air conditioned?  I've been SO tempted to pull the back window out of my shop and install a window unit air conditioner.  Since I insulated the shop if I keep the big door closed it stays cool enough in summer and I can heat it in winter.  If I keep the big door open a few minutes too long I head for the house.

Dad built a 60x40, whole thing between the house and barn.  whole thing is concrete and insulated, heater and AC.....stays very nice in there and with 3" of foam on the walls and ceiling it is sealed up tight.  Have bathroom roughed in and water in shop, but no fixtures installed yet....winter project!  Heat/AC was a used unit from one of the Chicago land Cub cadet collectors, pulled it out of his house when he went geo.

Anyone ever put rimguard in the back tires of a Garden tractor? Since weights are hard to find and expensive.

 

 

Not Rimguard, but I have Windshield washer fluid in 2 GT's rears.

Tubes I'd imagine. I have zero experience within the new fluids . Just calcium

I use washer fluid....in tubes, 80# per tire on 26x12 tires.  Load them with a home made "tire bong"....

Since the Ag tire shop will sell and mount the wt-300's for $98.00 a side I thought about getting rim guard added.

Bong, loads 2 gal at a time, unscrew top, pour it in, close and pressurize to 10 psi.....burp when necessary.   8-10 gal per tire when filled just below stem.

Wyatt Compton built the first one,  about 1/2 that size.  I copied his and made a few improvements along the way.

I once fluid filled the tires on a van made entirely of marijuana,  but it caught fire and went up in smoke before I could take a pic!!!!! ??

Wyatt tried his Bong out in my shop. He had some WWF and I had just flushed the cooling system on my pickup, had 8 gallons of used antifreeze, so we filled two sets of tires.  Your's is WAY bigger.  But they load fluid in a real hurry!

Converting our Cadets over to BKT  AG  tread as the old turfs are wearing out, have more tread bars then some other brands good plow tires, and work well on turf too.

We keep  26 x 12 - 12              23 x 10.50 - 12                 23 x 8.50 - 12

We prefer the 5 rib steers, better flotation and good looking

BKT  16 x 6.50 - 8                18 x 8.50 - 8
