burnt rims


Recommended Posts

Slightly possible. I have reused some burned rims and equipment before. Had mixed results

Most rims that I have seen the tires burnt off of are deformed from how hot the tire burns and the weight of the tractor. If they aren’t deformed and you’re a super fiscally minded individual (cheapskate), then I’d say they might work. Get a long hose with a clip on tire chuck when you air them up the first time.

Would depend on the severity of the fire.   Looks pretty hot.  
 

but probably no worse then a old rusted, patched, held by primer, ones. I have had  lol.

I’m thinking the same, I’ve no knowledge on tractor life but I’ve seen enough burnt wheels and I would go the fire ring route.

There is a lot more to fix on that tractor before a person would have to think about rims and tires anyway.

What was that tractor? What caused the fire?

Looks like a Ford TW Series.

This was the neighbor's TW 20 last year

Tractor catch the baler or vice versa?

With all the baler fires that seem to happen I think I would want on board fire system on both the baler and tractor.

Pull a lever an foam me.

A quick breakaway hitch wouldn't be a bad idea

Baler caught the tractor on fire. Gehl round baler. 

His teenage daughter was running it. The throat plugged and it stopped feeding. Well, apparently a Bearing was gone and heated up. She stopped and started cleaning it out which let the air in and away the baler went. She panicked and didn't get the tractor unhooked from the baler and when those rubber baler belts caught on fire. You couldn't get near enough to do anything and the tractor caught fire from that.

They had just bought the baler. I had looked at the baler into possibly buying it but didn't pull the trigger. Got lucky on that one.
