Now that the 1886 has"new shoes" on the rear, it's time to take a look at the front.

I was going to do a bit of snow removal with the FEL, but the left front was flat, and wouldn't take air. Evidently the valve was frozen, it was @22 Deg when I tried inflating it, as it took air OK today.

In any event, the fronts are mismatched. The right side is a virtually new Carlisle Turfsaver, and I forget that the other side is, but it has a lot of wear on it.

I'm in a bit of a quandary here. It would be cheaper to just but another Carlisle, but would the turfsavers be good enough to handle FEL work, or would I be better off with a ribbed type tire like the Vredestein V61?

I'll be using the FEL, a Brinly Plow, and, if the frame of the FEL doesn't interfere with the PTO shaft, a 40" tiller. In other words, utility work as opposed to lawn work.

ETA:

The tire size on the tractor now is 20-8.00-10

Hmmm, look for a pair of 4 ply tires at minimum, and I would try to find Snow Hog tread, which in the ATV world are called Holeshot tires.

Turfsaver tires should be good enough. Should be rated for atleast 600lbs each

The 20-8.00-10 Carlisle Turfsavers are rated for 895# at 24PSI tire pressure.

I'm just wondering if I would get better 'turning traction' with ribbed vs turf, and possibly easier turning.

The tires I linked should give you a great turning ability, and steering traction in snow.

Those rascals don't come in 20-8.00-10 though.

Local dealer here had a matching Carlisle Tutf-Saver, so I went with it.

My "want" said V61s, but my wallet said Turf-Saver :D:D

Was kind of fummy when I picked it up. Was a young kid there, looked at it and asked rear tire? Kinda shocked him when I said no...front....on a REAL Garden Tractor :rolling::rolling:

LOL
Yes, it is pretty funny when you always get those puzzled looks when you bring in an old part off a garden tractor.
I've had that happen a few times

i have Carlisle snow hog tires on the front of my h14 and they make a huge difference in the snow and they take the load pretty good you 1886 does not have power steering ? i plan to get a power steering unit from a JD and drop that in my h14 the steering is a bit tough with the blower on it i cant even think with a loader on it.

So guys I need your opinion on tires. I have a 1963 800 and want to know if I should put tri rib on the.front or put the same as the carsiles in the back. Traction will ne alot better with the carsiles. Thanks for your thoughts.
