    Wink John Deere LA115

    I added 4 gallons of windshield washer fluid to ballast the rear tires. It is a little less than 32 pounds per tire with the spillage/bubbling from the tire filling valve to the funnel and garden hose.

    It is a night and day differerence with how it operates with the 2 suitcase weights and my butt in the seat with zero slippage and lots of traction.

    I will probably add the fifth gallon to each tire since I had such great results with the first fill yesterday.

    I am so happy with this work that now its time to order the pneumatic casters, install the front chains, aftermarket snow blower light, and order the slick sheet for the snow blowers crosss auger housing.
