When I was blowing snow this morning I kind of thought the tractor was leaning on one side,.... I park it and thought nothing about it. I go back to put gas in and See that the tire is completely flat! :wallbanging: I guess a 40+ year old tubeless tire was bound to leak eventually LOL. I was lucky to have a spare stored in the basement that I brought up and installed. The tire just needs a tube and it will be fine. There was just a small crack it was leaking through.

Got the rubber chains and weights off. 16 degree metal sure is fun to handle LOL :poke:

Glad you're back and running. Those chains and weights do complicate the job some!
