I fixed up a Cub Cadet 882 to plow with.  Ive been doing the plow day thing for about 3 years now, and Ive never had to remove the rear wheels.  Well I sold the 882, and was able to keep my tires.  When I pulled the right side rear wheel off, I found a little more dirt than I expected.  I usually would wash it after I got home from an event, so this was slightly un-expected.  I guess Im not washing as good as I thought.  Anyways,  I just wanted yall to be aware of the dirt that can get packed in, on the furrow side, of the rim, on the axle and in my case, around the brakes.  That makes sense as to why it wouldnt stay parked on a hill.

nice.....that really got packed in ther.  I would imagine it can happen easily considering the angle your tractor sits when plowing.....

It can definitely happen easy.  Especially when you are at a plow day and there is 1in of water on top of the ground.  Im thinking thats where most of that dirt came from.

It has happened to me also. To bad the buildup doesn't  happen on the high side. More weight where you need it. :poke:

So nice I decided to sell it today.  I already miss it.  But It wasnt getting used anymore and I hate to have something that nice just sitting around doing nothing.  I sold it to a good friend for a good deal and I know he will put it to good use.
