 New Holland TC24DA Loading Tires for weight

I finally purchased my tractor after many years of investigation and pleading with my finance manager(Wife). It is an 06 TC24DA with 71 hrs on it. My dealer even was able to give me 0% financing for 5yrs. I did find out quickly though that I need to add weight to the rear end. I had 1/2 a bucket of topsoil in it and the rear end got real light. I have R4 tires and am debating between, loading the tires, wheel weights, and a 3pt hitch weight. I intend to mow weekly, and do landscape work around the house for the most part. any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Tc24daman,

You're right about the need to add weight to the rear of the tractor when using the loader.

Additionally, you'll want to be sure to carry your bucket very low (near to the ground) when you have a full load on. This will help prevent your tractor from tipping should you go over some rough ground while transporting a bucketful of sand, dirt, or other heavy material.

In the event that you begin to tip, you should lower your bucket all the way down to the ground immediately. The lower your center of gravity, the more stable your tractor will be.

If you do add additional weight to the rear, make sure that you also carry it as close to the ground as possible.

When traveling over uneven ground, please travel slowly. The TC24 is a small tractor, making it quite difficult to transport a full bucket of heavy material even on level ground.

I hope you enjoy your new tractor as much as I enjoy mine. Be careful and have fun.

Joel

TC24; All the things you need, extra weight on the rear, the ability to remove it easily for mowing and light duty, plus your desire to do landscape work point directly to a three point hitch box blade. Liquid filed tires are to put it politely, A MESS. Factory wheel weights are pricey and hard enough to handle that once you put them on you won't want to take them off to mow. The cost of filling tires or buying rear wheel weights plus a bit more will get you a decent low dallar, (Fleet Store) box blade. Get one that is about 8-10 inches wider than the outside dimension of your tractor, that's big enough. I used mine yestersay and am always amazed at how much soil you can move in a little while. Frank.

You've got conflicting needs. I like loaded tires but if you're mowing all the time you probably don't want them. Weight added to the 3ph can be dropped when you need greater maneuverability.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm kind of leaning more towards the 3pt hitch now. I can get some scrap plate steel from work cheap and make something up that can be dropped quickly.

Tc24daman,

I have a few suggestions that might serve you well.

Maybe you've seen the various drawbars available for the three point hitches. If so, you can use the holes in the drawbar for which to insert longer pieces of threaded rod that you can use to fasten your weights to the underside of the drawbar.

The idea here is to keep your weight as close to the ground as possible........preferrably below your tractor's rear axle....... when lifting heavier loads with your front end loader.

When in transit, you can lift the three point drawbar slightly to avoid obstacles that may be in your path, but this system will allow you keep your weights near to the ground, greatly helping to avoid any top-heavy situation that may arise.

Here's another suggestion...........

Your tractor may or may not have adjustable rear wheels. If so, spread your wheels out as far as possible on the rear axle when using your tractor for loader work. This will increase your tractor's stance, greatly improving your stability.

You should also move the rear wheels out to the last hole on the axle when mowing ditches, or anytime you are going to be working on uneven ground. This is the best way to help prevent a rollover.

Even with the extra rear weights and improved stance, please be careful. Never carry a load in your front end loader any higher than is absolutely necessary. Only raise your bucket when your tractor is stopped, and on level ground, such as when dumping.

During transit, from point A to point B, carry your loaded bucket just inches above the ground.

If you have a belly mower, the additional under-slung weight will also help improve your stability. However, it is very hard to maneuver on rough ground when the belly mower is attached. Damage can occur to both mower and tractor when engaging large bumps or ditches. For this reason the additional weight of the belly mower will help only when you are working in your driveway, or in your lawn.

Safety is the key here. Wear your seatbelt. Be careful.

Joel
