I got a present in the mail today.  A beautiful set of tires for my 149.  I will mount these on my 9.5 x 12 rims and have them filled with rim guard.  I will also have the Sears 9.5 tires filled with rim guard.  I should have them on the tractor by this weekend. :dancingbanana:

Took my new tires to the tire shop and had them mounted and filled with Bio Ballast( Beet Juice).  I also had the Sear tires fill at the same time.  It cost me a total of $40 with tax to have the tires mounted and filled with ballast.  I brought them back home and weighed all four.  Each weighted 86.5 lbs.  This gives me a total of 173 lbs. of ballast per side with the dually kit installed.    I know some people don't like putting dual's  on their GT's but I've weighed my options and decided this is how I wanted to go. Here is what she looks like.

I put her to work to see to see how she felt.  She worked flawlessly!  This was the heaviest load that I've had on her so far.

I still need to get the decals on her.

Should help with the stability for the loader. That looks just like my saw. I love that thing.

I got the band saw at a yard sale for $40. I thought that was a steal.
It just needs to be cleaned up really good and have a new blade put on it.

Ace hardware has the blades here. That is a Central Machinery saw, right? I have a manual if so.

 

The Band Saw is equipped with a 64-1/2″
diameter, 0.025″ thick, 1/2″ wide, 14 teeth per inch
Saw Blade.
