Was pretty mild weather today, so I loaded the HDT on the trailer and took it off to have the new tires put on it.

 

I had already had the V61 fronts installed.  This time I had the rears replaced.  Sure was a lot nicer being able to take the tractor to them instead of taking off one tire, taking it down to get remounted, coming back, taking the other one off, taking it down....this time it was just one trip each way :D :D :D

 

Putting Rim Guard in would be even worse as I'll be loading all four tires this time.  I did stop at the 'Rim Guard' place but they said it would be better to wait until it warmed up more, as the Rim Guard pumps REAL slow in cold weather, so that will have to wait until another day.

 

Neat thing about the ANCLA tires is that they use a Husky Dog as a logo, so they sorta 'fit' the Bolens :D :D :D

 

Anyway, here are the pics of the almost new V61s and the new ANCLAs.  Of course I promptly got them muddy while moving the trailer around to the side yard.

You folks can argue rear tire choices all ya want, but V61's are 'it' as far as I'm concerned.

I forgot to mention that when I went to start the HDT to move the trailer, and then load it up, the battery died  :(    I tried jumping it with the HT20D, but even then it wouldn't crank over. I checked the date on the battery and saw that it was sold in July 06, so I guess it was due for replacement.  I went off to Wally World and got a 600 CCA battery, and it spins over REAL well now :D :D

 

This is going to be my 'Plow tractor' and besides the Rim Guard in all four tires, I'll be putting 35# weights on each front wheel, and 105# combine wheel weights on each rear wheel.  I should have PLENTY of traction with that setup :D :D :D

Yeah, in fact, I'm going to modify the 1886FL with axles from an HT on it so I can use the same size V61s on it as well.

 

The 6-ply V61s have a very high load rating, and that's going to be important for the forklift.

This is where I got the Ancla tires.

http://www.discountu...ST-ANCLA-TIRES/

 

The ANCLAs may not come small enough for the H16 though.  The smallest ones I can find are 25-8-12 and 25-10-12.  I guess they MIGHT work if you have enough clearance to the fender.

 

I went with the 26-11-12 tires instead of the 'standard' 26-12-12 tires mostly because of the price.  ANCLA 26-12-12 tires generally go in the 100+ ea. range.  Plus I doubt that being 1" narrower will make all that much difference in traction/flotation.

That's just the standard 18086 3-pt for the HTs with a Ballard Fabrications 'A' frame that has a sleeve hitch adapter on one side and a tow tab on the other.  I do have the stop block for the hitch, but it's on the HT20D right now.  I'll get it moved to the HDT when the weather gets warmer and drier.

The 1886FL is an 1886-01 with the small tires.  I'm going to put the HT axle assemblies on it so I can use the larger bolt on wheels.

I've been happy with the ANCLAs that I put on my 1886, so I'm sure that they will work well on the HDT as well.

 

Yeah they are ATV/UTV tires, and the 'purists' might have a problems with them, but some other folks that have used them on GTs seem to have liked them as well.

 

They seem to be really good in mud as they tend to shed it rather than get all caked up with a resulting loss in traction.

25-11-12's Will fit under a h16 How ever ! they Should be on 10x12 rims ! i have mine mounted on 7x12 rims and there is Not much ground contact i want to put them on my 1256D and i have rims that sit Close to the Tool box so they don't stick out far I  :love: Tires LOL
