Got the 1886 off the trailer Sat. and promptly got stuck in the south yard :blush2::blush2:

It's been real wet here, and it just sat and spun. I guess part of it is that the FEL has unloaded the rear, but the turf tires not having that much traction helped a lot as well.

So, I'm thinking that a pair of Ags would be in order.

In checking around, I found some ATV tires that look like they might be what I'm looking for, i.e. not too costly :smile1:

Heres a link to a vid and an ebay listing.
CST Ancla ATV Tires - YouTube
OE John Deere Gator 26x11-12 CST Ancla ATV TIRE 6ply | eBay

Now, a couple of questions.

In a lot of the descriptions they say a max air pressure of 4 PSI. Think that is too low for a 1886?

Second, the current turfs are 26x12x12. Would I lose anything by going with the 26x11x12 tires in the ebay listing, or would the lugs make up the difference?

Last, what are your thoughts on this tire?

ETA:

This tire DOES come in 26x12x12 as well. Also, note the "Husky Dog" on the side...looks like it was MEANT for a Bolens :D:D:D

To me,those look like good tires,like that tread pattern. With 26x11x12 compared to 26x12x12,it looks like you would be loosing an 1" of width.

I didn't look at the link for the tires, but you may want to check the load rating. You need to make sure they will hold the weight needed to balance the fel.

Good looking tire for mudd, on an atv , not so sure on a tractor, looks to me like they will just make big holes in the turf when it spins. A slow moving tire needs to "break" side to side, this is why they stagger the bars on tractor treads. It cuts way down on the shearing effect.

Have you looked at the Carlisle HD field Trax tires. They come in 26x12/12 They are an excellent compromise between AG and turf IMO. They are very grippy on slippery surfaces and don't tear up the lawn. Heres a link. Carlisle Tire & Wheel Company

I'm not too worried about tearing up the lawn, I have a YARD :D:D:D

This 1886 isn't going to be used for mowing, etc. It will be used more for moving attachments and other stuff around, snow removal, tilling, and some landscaping, where the yard would already be torn up.

Just ordered a pair for 197.50 with free shipping.

I searched the net for a couple of hours and this was the best price I could find. I saw places where they wanted as much as 150.00 apiece.

Thats a good value. Those should do the job for you. There are so many different ATV tires compared to just AG's or turf for tractors.
