Default Removing fluid ballast

I'm getting a set of mounted Ags and the tires are fluid ballast filled.

How does one get the stuff OUT...? Is there any way to do this other than breaking the tire down or should I do that anyway in order to clean / dry the inside?

Unless they are large farm tires, you can handle them easily, so no need to remove ballast for transport.
Now if you are talking about demounting the tires off the rims for some reason, you can take the valve core out with it @ the 6 O'clock position and let gravity, and the air pressure push the ballast out into a container of appropriate size.

Hi George, yes, I can wrestle them around, but I just don't want them filled (there's no need).

Talking

You are getting a set of ag's already mounted on rims and they are already filled w/fluid, correct?

May I ask why you do not want the extra weight in a set of ag tires??

If you are going to do any type of ground engaging activity such as plowing, cultivating, grading or even mowing on embankments you may want to reconsider as you will probably need the extra weight for traction. That is, of course, unless you are building a "trailer queen" for shows.

OK, ok, I'll give it a try as is.... I will use it for mowing/hauling on an irregular lawn, so I'll give 'em a go.

Tubes? Who knows? :-) I'll post pix when I get em (monday?)

I'm running loaded ags on an 1811. This is the first year there has ever been a lawnmower with ags, much less loaded ones here on the farm. The places we can go with that machine are amazing. It doesn't ride quite as smooth at "road/travel" speed, but I can live with that.

There have been several threads on this forum about filling tires with liquid ballast. Search around a little and you'll find that some of our members have come up with some pretty slick ways of doing it.

Take em' off, break the bead on one side, and dump in your fluid of choice. Or if you're doing tubes, you'll have to pump it in...
I use windshield washer fluid, in the tire, no tube.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
