Actually, if your tires are tubelss, The easiest way is to remove the wheels and lay them on their side. Then break the bead loose from the rim on the upper side, then just pour it in.

If you want to do it ON the tractor, there are ballast fill kits available at reasonable prices. Gempler's sells them, I'm sure there are others.

But your question begs one of my own. Where did you get your hands on bulk RimGuard? I thought it was limited to dealer installations only.

I can take drums to dealer and get them filled.

Why do you want them loaded? Do you find it light with the backhoe on?

No, not with the hoe attached, but will help without it, I never use the tractor without some type of counterbalance on the back.

It's your money but normally we try and stay away from loading tires. With normally having rear ballast of some sorts on the tractor I'd wonder that you'd not be making the tractor too heavy and sacrafice everyday performance from loss of proper ballasting and from the tires not being able to flex for the conditions of the ground your driving over.

I agree with Art, there are other options like wheel weights, ballast boxes, attaching a rear blade, etc. that allow for easy removal if desired or for different amounts of weight.

I attach a rear blade to mine or use my pulverizer as a counterweight whenever using my FEL for serious work. When mowing with MMM, etc., I take it off to not compress the lawn.

If you have a dedicated tractor for a certain purpose like with backhoe that is a different story.

There are also other options in addition to Rim Guard. I've heard of people using Sugar Beet Juice as one.

I didn't know that! Learned something new myself.

I use Calcium Chloride in my MF135. It rusted through one rim in about 20 years. That is why most have gone a different route.
