/ Tires filled with Beet Juice too heavy for landscaping and field work? #21
I have a 45HP Mahindra with industrial type tires filled with water. Not sure what beet flavoring adds to it. Lower its blood pressure? Anyway, I'd say keep them full and no worries. It all depends on your soil. If completely dry they won't leave a mark. Clayish texture, perfect imprint of the tread. Very muddy or muddy on a slope, don't. I do notice that more and more weight, like my tires, a 4in1 loader, and backhoe, add up to require lower gears when going uphill, so expect that.I recently just purchased a new 48hp HST TYM. About to have it delivered to get started. They did a nice job of getting me talked into beet juice in back tires as it helps with loader work, and i'll be doing a lot of that. Also, I'll be doing a lot of field work (planting, cultivating) AND landscaping around my house. The guys told me last week the extra weight will leave very deep grooves everywhere. Now I'm thinking I should have NOT had the beet juice add instead of a removable ballast or leave box blade on back when loader work. Thoughts or suggestions? I could in theory ask them to pump out the juice, lol.
R4 likely... if you dont want to leave ruts stay off the grass when its soft.Industrial tires
What I plan to do is clear some of the foliage alongside the path right near the opening to the hedgerow. This way I'm basically driving diagonally through the opening and bypassing the vast majority of the pathway and so localizing my damage to the smallest area possible.May be time to upgrade the pathway with some heavy gravel or stone.
