I wasnt sure where to post this.

 

Im currently in the process of loading my other ag for my cub with washer fluid since the other is loaded with calcium. An i got to thinking how does everyone fill their tires an what all does everyone use or have you used in the past? My tire size is the 6-12 rear for my cub 70

I used the Slime brand garden hose adapter, with 4 feet of hose, duct taped to a funnel, duct taped to a step ladder.

I put tire on its side and break bead on that side. Put a long skinny flex funnel and just start pouring in 1 gallon at a time. Takes i think around 6-7 gallons. Then fill it with air.

My buddy loads his that way as well..but uses play sand..I figured it would eat the rim up..but he has been doing it for years..

All i can say is the more weight the better and the difference with fluid and then some weights really changes how these garden tractors work

A hand pump garden sprayer works too.

Take the wand off, remove the valve core and use a hose clamp to keep the sprayer hose on the valve stem.

Put the fluid into the sprayer and pump away.

You will have to "burp" the tire because you are pumping fluid and air into the tire.

Worked very well for me.

 

I did buy one of these for the next time...

Here is what we used, just a one gallon pump sprayer with the wand removed and rubber line we had around the garage, we filled 2 26x12x12 tires in less than 20 min.

Pump sprayer for any with tubes, sidewall open for the ones that don't.
We have a hose adapter and have filled bigger tractor tires with it, but hardly worth the effort to set that all up for 14 gal.

BTW, you will want the calcium tire on the left.
That's is the uphill tire (most apt to spin) when plowing and the calcium is significantly heavier than WWF.

I will never put cacl in a tire again after seeing how bad the rims get, but there are a lot out there still.



Playsand... Hmmm. Playsand and a little anti rust agent might be good and heavy.
