fluid filling the tires with an anti-freeze solution (NOT NaCl) would be alot easier and cheaper. This is unless you have some unusual reason why you need weights and no fluid.

Plots, I think this is a great product. I plan on buying a set for my 4100. It is the same idea I used but much stronger.

Cheif..... any idea what a fluid filled tire for Plots 790 would weigh? My 4100 tires go well over 200# when filled and are a backbreaker to change.

I have the R-4 tires and each tire took about 55 gallons on my 4410. That comes to around 445 per tire. The 790 tires are not that much smaller. I would guess somewhere around 325 - 375 per tire. You are right about being a back breaker. I would not want to change one. The tires on my old Cub 154 Loboy were fluid filled and were the original tires. They lasted over 30 years. Knock on wood! Wink yeah right

The merits of weights vs tire-fill sure has been discussed a lot. If I had to choose I'd use weights but I wouldn't like the price at all. The main advantage of weights is that they do come off, which may be important for people who finish mow but need more traction for other work. They also don't make a mess if there's ever a leak or corrode the wheels.

There also are a few fine points in favour of weights. A tractor handles better at road speeds without filled tires. The tread is less deformed and traction may be a bit better. There's less wear and tear on the tractor if weight isn't carried when it's not needed. As I say, mostly fine points, and the cost of weights really does put me off.

Plots - Forget the wheel weights. The picture of those truck brake drums made me think that with a bit of welding and another set of tires and rims, you could have the first JD790 with duals on the block. Now THAT would be one mean looking little tractor!
