  • tire loading with cacl/water mixture
  • Anyone see anything wrong with this chart? Anyone know where this chart originated?

  • Exact match to the chart in the Service Training Manual for the 8N.

  • Max recommended FRONT tire weights are way too high. Never get near those numbers with 40 to 80 pounds of ballast added to wheel and tire weight.

  • After looking again. Those weights are "Tire Loads Per Wheel" which should be the total weight of the tractor that is being carried by each wheel.

  • What I was wondering about (and it may be the way it works) is that it looks like they put 33 gallons of water plus 163/15.44=10.5 gallons of cacl into a tire that has a recommended fill volume of 27 gallons. It may very well be that the 10.5 and 33 when mixed together have a resulting volume of ~ 33. Some other charts do look different. Yes,I know, 'go back to sleep & don't worry about it'.
