Kenny why are you using windshield washing fluid? Are there other fluids that will work like for instance RV winterizing antifreeze?

WW fluid is about the cheapest and temps aren't cold enough down here for anti-freeze.

At 4-6 minutes per gallon, you would be back and forth a lot!

About a 6-pack with the chair as you operate!

 

I'd worry the WW fluid would rust the rims over time..  I'd tube them up if it were mine..  JMO

My rims are painted with appliance epoxy paint, so not too worried!

What temperature is the WW fluid good down to?

 

Also, how is the traction with those Goodyear Super Terra Grips let's say compared to Carlisle Tru Powers?

WW is good down to about 20°. I haven't any Tru Powers to compare them to. But we'll see how Alice does with the BKT's on her.

Actually washer fluid has varying freezing points, cheap stuff is rated at -22°f, Prestone is good to -34°f and some top shelf stuff is rated at -45°f. There aren't many places south of Canada that it wouldn't be safe in tractor tires as long as it's 100% fluid and no extra water is added. These ratings are in the reservoir, not at the nozzles, which is what you need to know for tires.  When you spray it and the droplets become small and it's exposed to air it can freeze much sooner as the exposure per droplet is much greater than a gallon of liquid in the jug or tire, and you can get a "super cooling" effect.
