    Default Air Pressure Question

    I have spent the last hour looking for a post I remember seeing which included a suggestion for R4 tire pressure when mowing. The subject had to do with mowing and leaving the least amount of trails or impressions in the ground. I was unable to find that post.

    Thanks

    I did search for "mowing" AND "tire pressure"
    and found the following:

    Hope this is the way to pass it on.

    I remember the post and am waiting to try it also as I have R4's. I think in a nut shell you are to run your tires on the lower range of what your manufacture tells you to.

    I did some experimenting last Summer, and went as low as 7#. This was OK for mowing, but when I was bush-hogging in some rough stuff and got the mower hung up, I spun a rear tire on the rim and leaked some fluid. I run more air in the fronts when using the FEL, due to the weight. It looks like something around 10-12# may be the lower limit on my B7500 for general use. The tires are rated for much more than that as a maximum inflation, but the R4's tend to feel like solid steel tires when you really blow them up..................chim

    I haven't check the pressure in my R4's yet but they are hard as a rock so I am assuming they are at the maximum. I will let them down to 12 this summer for mowing.
