my new tires came in this morning so after i got a few other jobs done i went and mounted them on...  i dont like turf tires and i hate messing with tire chains so i have ag tread on most of my GT's.... the local tire shop wanted 170.00ea tire i got these on ebay for 198.00 for the pair with free shipping and there 4 ply.. it looks so much better and no more tire chains scraching my nice concrette floor :thumbs:

no i havent done that yet because i am going to wait until i restore it... it has not broke anymore then it already was so its ok for now but i will get to it.. now im waiting for my front wheel weights then im going to do some trenching :thumbs:  the tires are called nanco super lugs and they grip i was pushing crushed concrette in my drive way for about an hour.. i love running that tractor. when i first started collecting i wasnt into the (LF) and the HT's but now im head over heals in love with them. i cant wait to get the HT23s home and get the backhoe one and play with that :D

Nice, looks like the 10 ply on the back of the 1886-03 with FEL we have.

 

Who makes 10-ply tires in 26-12-12?  I've found some 8-ply Deestones, but I wouldn't mind a pair of 10-ply tires if I stay at 26-12-12.

Danged nice looking 20D there Sam.  I REALLY need to get the hood decals on mine.  It would sure look better with them.

 

If/when you replace the dash make sure to et one of the metal ones.  The 20D uses the same dash as the other tractors and has even the slot for the choke lever, but the decal just covers that up.

i got a metal dash for it.. when i bought the tractor from form member NJKen he gave me the dash and a new set of decals for the whole tractor... and thanks dave she is a good looking old girl thats all original. when it gets wamer out im going to buff it with wax then she will shine.. i was going to paint the wheels but i didnt want to make it look dumb with 1 shade of white on the fender pan an hood and another on the wheels so. who ever had this tractor really took care of it. i have pit 10 hours on it since i changed the oil and its still clean and you never see that with a diesel engine

They look like they are hooking up good behind the dozer blade.

Nice looking tires on a nice looking GT.

I bet that hydro plow angle is great.

i love the hydos on this tractor it has hi & low and the power angleing blade is nice also. my grounds keeper also hase the power angleing blade and that was the first tractor i bought that had it and now i dont even bother with the 1050 or 1250 when it comes to pushing dirt/snow. they both have hydo lifts but not power angleing blades... i cant beleave they never made one for the 1250's and 1455's they didnt start until the 1886's
