Da hoss musta thrown a shoe.

I got into some thorny Mock Orange and I reckon that some got into my tire.  That tire was old anyway so it is getting shod.  $122 + +.  :-X
Put water in both rear tires for ballast.  It won't hurt the tires.  It will definitely help with traction

OR...or use some of the stuff called liquid tube. OTR truckers are known for using it quite often. Its white in color and prevents rust, unlike slime. It works well. Ive even used it in my trail buggy (truck) tires and never had a flat on anything except for the time that I had a very tight obstacle that put 5 large 4+ gashes in the sidewall. Nothing that you could do that time. I have even run it at 60mph without balance weights, and 1gal in each tire. BTW, the tire size, 35x12.50x15. Not cheap, but not the end of the world. I dont play like that anymore. Cant afford it, now that Im married and WE have a house!

And these tires were just over $200 each 15yrs ago. My, how time flies. Like several of my USMC buddies and Dad (was also USMC) said, would never do it again, but wouldnt trade it for anything. 
And I didnt even coax those comments from any of them.

No loaded tires for me.....too many thorns.  Yes it helps with balance, traction, and smooths out the ride, but a flat is a killer.  Been there, done that, and have the T shirt.  :-X

I got serious tractor envy!
I've had a few tractors, none newer than 1954 vintage.
I hope to some day soon have a very modern Kubota myself.

I did it with the Kubota financing plan - 0% down, 0% interest.  Sell off your old tractors and pay down the balance. :)

This tire was old, badly cracked, and had a tube in it.  I will go back tubeless so I can use Strings to make repairs as needed.

I've been using those on my truck and trailer tires for years.  You can repair tires that the tire shops won't touch (fear of liability).  However, on my tractor I use industrial brown goop in the front tires and water for ballast in the rear tires.  Having worked as an ag mechanic for 10 years, we rarely saw any large tire punctures unless the tire was old and cracking.  In Montana they added calcium chloride to the tires to prevent freezing.  It is still easy to repair tires with the strings that have water in them, but you have to rotate the puncture to the top of the tire and allow the air pressure to normalize before repairing.  Use the reamer to open up the tire puncture and help normalize the air pressure before inserting the string.  Works like a charm.

New front tire and we were back at the farm today doing some welding on the broken disc.


 
Lift the disc frame up and off of the disc assembly.


 
Grind and bevel the broken weld.


 
That should hold.



And the disc is back together and ready for this Fall's Food Plot planting. Thank You Kubota FEL.

The spraying that I did Monday looked like 100% success!!  ;D

Oats and Wheat.  I have many volunteer grasses such as Fescue, but the plots give them something special.  I wish that I would have had time yesterday to take a picture of the spraying success.

I know this is not a tractor question. 
Big Bob is my first skid steer.
Can you load tires on them?
Is there a benefit to doing it.
I have had 3 tractor and have had the rear tires loaded in all of them.

Ballast in rear tractor tires is generally to offset the loader and move the CG rearward and allow the rear tires to have more traction.  
Adding ballast to the tires on a skidsteer will put more weight (traction) to the ground and will also compact the ground more.  Usually as small as skidsteer tires are you are not going to get more than 5 to 10 gallons max per tire so at 10 gallons that would be approximately 75 pounds per tire.  
The way skidsteers are configured I am not sure if there is a benefit.  Usually the weight pivot point is the front tires so ballast in them would be neutral.  Skidsteers are generally designed for balanced load and traction.

Da hoss got another workout yesterday along with it's brother John.


 
But first John got outfitted with PAT's quick hitches.  I have a Speeco quick hitch but I believe that this will give me more flexibility.


 
I am/was needing more White Oak for bridge decking so this tree shown in the center would be the donor.


 
27" butt.


 
It gets measured, marked, and trimmed.



The 18' butt log and a 12'.


 
The top logs.


 
John is hooked up.


 
And I am ready to make the mile skid with this 18',  27" butt and 22" top log.


 
Marty and John will skid these two 12' top logs.  We will come back and make the final mile long skid with the other 12' logs.


 
Making the first skid.


 
The logs are skidded, staged, and ready for the sawmill.  It was very hot  smiley_sweat_drop smiley_sun  but it also was a very productive and rewarding afternoon.

Marty added another "Hoss" to his stable.



This is the first purchase of his new "start up" construction company.  Not new but it should serve him well.  It is an F350, e/w a 6.7 Diesel.

Marty added another "Hoss" today to his stable.


 
It is a Kubota U25 for his new "start-up" construction company.


 
And it met my Kubota M4900 for the first time this morning.  "Hi there, nice to meet you".  :)

Tomorrow Marty and Ben are traveling to the Dallas, TX area to pick up his second work truck; a 2013, F250 e/w a 6.7 Diesel.  It will join the F350 pictured in Reply #156 above.
