Quick question for ya’ll, what is the main advantage of duel wheels for a Cub Original? Been throwing around the idea of going to duel wheels on one of my Originals.
Also, I know this was an option from cub cadet, but how common was it to order a Cub with dual wheels?
Question about loading tires.... does everyone load tires with washer fluid that have tubes or can you safely load them tubeless? Want to add some weight to the back end of 1872, but tires don’t have tubes in them currently. Does the washer fluid eat the rims over time? Was hoping to save some money if I could do so safely.
The bong has a schrader valve on the top to add air pressure. The brass valve is a bleeder. Bong is made out of 4" PVC (~48"), with glue cap on one end and threaded clean-out on the other. Holds about 2.5 gallons.
Always "seat" the tube by filling it with air, deflating, and re-inflating before adding fluid.
1) Hook tube to tire (valve stem removed).
2) Remove 4" threaded cap and add 2 gallons of washer fluid to bong.
3) Close cap and apply 3-5 psig ?(NEVER MORE THAN THAT) to bong to push washer fluid into tire/tube.
4) If tire over inflates, bleed pressure from brass valve and start over with 3-5 psig. Usually takes one bleed per gallon.
5) Repeat process until tire is full to point where fluid is just below valve stem at the 12 o'clock position.
IIRC, 8.50 tires take 5-6 gallons (35-48#), 10.50 take 7-8 gallons (50-65#), and 26x12 take 9-10 gallons (60-80#).
I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use tubes with fluid (and prefer to use them in all my L&G tires).<!-/quote-!><hr size=0></blockquote>
Home made, just took a wheel and cut the center out, use 4 lengths of all thread and run them thru the holes in the rims ,
do they help with traction and flotation..??
I don't know...I built it coz it looks kinda cool...!!
Kind of what I built them after Michael,
Brian, does coating the inside of the thrower with graphite make a big difference, I have my chute sprayed, was wondering about the rest, I have new paint on the inside of mine and the flighting and that seems to help.
