 Water filled tires for 7610

I just bought a new 7610 with a 60 belly mower. I mow some fairly steep side hills. My old Ferguson tractor had a wide stance and water filled wheels. I felt OK from a roll over standpoint. The new tractor has the wheels as wide as they go. It seems to have a higher center of gravity. Any downside to filling the tires with water? Do you put a tube in the tire , then fill the tube? I've heard of antifreeze mixture or calcium carbonate. Does anyone have an opinion on which is better?

 Water filled tires for 7610

There's lots of discussion in the archives. CACL is heavier than water or antifreeze. A non-corrosive product called Rim Guard also is heavier than water. Yes, most people do use tubes for corrosive fill like CACL.

A lot of the discussion is a comparison between liquid fill and wheel weights. Wheel weights have some advantages but are pricey. There's a recent discussion about homemade weights.

TomG, I really don't know anything about puting antifreeze in tires, but in past years have had lots of experience with the water/calcim chloride mix. It will do the job, and yes you need a tube. The down side is if you ever suspect a leak fix it as soon as you can. Even a small leak will eat up a rim and or have the tube adhered to the inside of the rim so tightly that the only way to get the tube out is by cutting the tube in small pieces and trying to peel it off the rim. Around here when you call a tire shop on a tractor tire their first question is if you have fluid in the tire, I know of some who won't do a service call on a filled tire. It can be a real mess. I agree weights are expensive, but also once you buy them on one tractor you just transfer them to your new tractor. I've made weights from old steel hayrake wheels or anything the right diamater filled with the bag mix concrete and some pieces of pipe thru them to match the holes in your tractor wheel. Keep smiling,Frank.

 Water filled tires for 7610

It wouldn't be seemly to claim to have a problem even if I felt like I did and I don't. I do the same thing. Most every morning I check the weather forecast first thing. Several hours later my wife asks me what the weather's going to do. Half of the time I don't remember details, or which days it's going to happen or give her the forecast from the day before. With this early morning net stuff, I'm not always sure I've quite stopped dreaming. I'm a frequent user of the edit function a few minutes after I've posted.

 Water filled tires for 7610

My tires came loaded with Rim Guard, recommended by the dealer because of the FEL. If I were to do it over, I would use wheel weights so I could remove them for mowing, or other activities where I was concerned about tearing up the ground. It also makes tire repair a pretty expensive endeavor. Water and calcium chloride is a recipe for a problem due to the corrosive nature of the salt. Wheel weight brackets can also be fabricated to extend outside the wheel rim to further stabalize the tractor. My vote is for wheel weights. Easy to make, easy to use, easy to maintain. Good luck.
