 790 tire pressure/flat

Well I git a nail in my R-4s today so i used aplug. SO far so good. So Sad

What tire pressure are you guys running in your R-4s with the FEL being used quite a bit. I don't want to be so low that a full bucket really bulges em' but they seem rock hard from the dealer. Espaecally the rear that thing never budges, might as well be solid Smile

 790 tire pressure/flat

I have basically the same question. I was using the FEL on my JD2210 this weekend, and noticed that even with half a bucket of sugar-clay (fine dust), the front tires were really bulging-out, and looked like they were going flat. So, I check the operators manual which has the front turfs inflated to 22psi (which is the same as the max pressure on the sidewall). But then the operators manual for the 210 FEL says to add an extra 4psi in the fronts, which puts them over the tire manufacturers max pressure, which I did. This seemed to help a little. Would I dare go any higher? Or, do I just need more weight on the back to counter balance the load on the front?

I'm running 45lbs front and 15lbs rear. The tires are 6 ply.

 790 tire pressure/flat

My new tractor came with R-4's. Not my choice.... it was what we could find.

Man, those things are rock hard and have a terrible ride. So I checked the pressure and the rears were at 30 lbs. Way to much for a 4115.

So I tried letting some air out until there was a sidewall bulge. Never got there. The tires are so stiff they have the same profile with no air in them. In fact I got one too low and the bead came off the rim.

Even at that it still would not go flat. And of course, there was no way I was going to get that bead re-seated with my 2 gallon air compressor.

End of story: those R-4's are in the shed and the new rear tire is a mud and snow radial, with some left-over 24/8.50-12 turfs from the old tractor on the front.

I'm hoping it will ride better.

Mark,

Hope you can get some Pix up of your new Ride soon.

I assume you have just one tractor now? If you still have the three a Picture of the Three would be awesome, so we could get a look at the different ones you have tried, small to large.

Hopefully that is not the case and you were able to trade the other two in.

I still have the BX22, but it has to go pretty quick. I traded the 4100 for the 4115. I'll try to post some pics today.

Mark,
With the "Turfs" on the front, what pressure are you at? And, do they bulge much with a load in the bucket?

I run my 790 as , 15 lbs in the rear 25 lbs in the front. when I picked it up from the dealer they were 30 rear and 35 front , decreasing pressure did help the ride some but it still rides like a tractor. go figure! Laughing out loud

No, there is no appreciable bulge. I use a heavy duty Firestone turf tire, not one of those riding mower products. I think I carry 25 lbs in them, which is the max listed on the sidewall.

Magee, I initially had the fronts on the 2210 at 30#. I have backed it doen to 28 #. I have not had any problems from this. The fronts on the 2210 are pretty darn small. Do you have turfs or the combo ag type tires they offer. Currently there are only two tires for the front of the 2210 as they came out with a new tire size for this model. Thanx to some good advice from Mark H I went with the turfs and I am VERY glad I did. Especially in light of the fact that both of the tires offered are only 4 ply. I run 20# in the rear. I trust you have been dinding lots of good use for that FEL ! I find I run out of traction from a lack of weight way before any tire could make much difference, or at least that is my flawed thought process.
