good moring,
I have a 126, I put 10x12.5 ag tires on back, with 45lbs liquid in each tire,
now every time I try to back up a slight hill, dirt/gravel driveway, it just spins. any ideas?
thank you,

What attachment, if any, do you have on the front?

What did you have for tires before?

Welcome to the forum!
If the weather is like it is around here, you'll have to wait until it quits raining for about a week! LOL!
Seriously, if you could take some pictures of it in action and post them, that would help.

Ag tires are directional, they don't work as well in reverse. Tire pressure should be set to where the full length of the bars make equal contact on a smooth flat surface.

Sounds like a you have a heavy front attachment. OR just really wet grass

Low pressure in front tires won't help either.
That's why I asked what he had on the front, if anything.
New member w/1st post.
Hope we didn't scare him off.
How about it Dave??;)

thank for the input, nothing on front, bare tractor, maybe I will try lowering air pressure,
acts almost like having brakes on front.

Check and service front wheel bearings.
