The recent wild temp swing made it easy to see the level of SC in my loaded tractor tires.  All the best, Rob.

When they filled the tires on my new Mahindra they used used antifreeze.  Told me most dealers where going to it because of the corrosion problem.

My Kubota came with Rim-Gaurd (beet juice) in the tires, they add it when you buy it with a FEL. Supposed to be good down to -35. Park your wheels with valve stem on top to check air pressure, (so it doesn't leak out).

Unfortunately a rubber boot repair will never bond if you have run glycol.

Beat juice and NaCl, I thought they used that to salt the roads.  ;D

I laughed when the tire guy told me that beet juice was $4 a gallon!!!!   For some garbage juice that Western Family wont even buy.

For $4 a gallon I could fill them with Martinellis! 

Got ahold of my oldboss at the quarry and got a barrel of old antifreeze.  $Free.99

Done.

With how easy the back of my tractor comes off the ground I was doubting they loaded mine. Then I saw the line. Yup they are loaded. Did you also feel the temperature difference?
I knew what I thought I meant.
