 Wheel weights

The dealer told me to let him fill the rear tires 3/4 full with water/antifreeze to weight them down instead of using wheel weights as ballast. Will I need ballast to use the loader on a TZ25? Thoughts? Options?

Confused city boy...thanks!

I'm a big believer in following the ballasting requirements in the owners manual. What does it recommend? Many dealers always want to fill the tires when a loader is used, just to be sure you won't get in trouble. Sometimes the manufacturer agrees, or even requires this - other times they don't.

A more accurate question would be:

Do I "need" ballast for doing light duty work with a 25HP tractor? I'll be using a loader, box scraper and 60" finishing mower.

What kind of tires do you plan on getting? You say finishing mower? Are you planning on using this to cut your lawn all the time? If so was thinking (and only in this case) maybe you should explore other options for ballast. Keep that box blade on and add a couple of weights for the loader work, take everything off for your mowing. I would think if she was a bit damp that the added ballast would not be helpful while mowing a YARD and may limit when you could mow.

With the TZ tractors you want the tires filled with the loader and some sort of 3pt ballast. Weather you are using it as a primary mower or not. With out it you will be limited to about 150lbs in the loader.

Using water and antifreeze doesn't offer the same weight gain as calcium cloride (according the Service Manual calcium cloride is the only tire fill fluid recommended). That said, moisture from water is going to lead to eventual rust problems on the rim itself (which are rarely totally painted anyway) and could lead to rust forming between the bead which will lead to constant air leakage. The TC33D Service Manual says to only fill the tires 75% full which is indicated when the tire stem is in the 12 o'clock position and fluid comes out the stem. If it were me, I wouldn't use the wheel weights or filling the tires and only use the implement such as a box scraper with weights which will give you much more weight in the form of leverage hanging off the back, plus the scraper is handy for spreading the dirt. So you kill two birds at one time. And when you are mowing you aren't carrying all that extra water weight.

Thanks...all good suggestions...I assume Land Pride or others make weights to go with their box scrapers. Still learning...thanks!

Calcium is NOT the way to go,,I would say ONLY use methanol/water mix(mixture depends on your climet)and you almost have to have it for the use of a loader,,if you e mail me your tire size,,I have a chart to tell you how mush weight it will add,,(just my opinion)

Calcium NOT the way to go---says who? According to New Holland it is. From a strict liability and warranty standpoint they have a lot to lose by NOT recommending the right stuff.

Why would you use Methanol, which is a flammable liquid, in tires? errrr?

Or maybe when the tires explode the water puts out the flames (te-he-he)

Seriously though, tell more about the methanol trick.
