    That site no longer exists. This Google search should find related info: tractor tire ballast chart.


    In this chart 75% is described as filled just above the rim with the valve stem at the top, and 40% fill (half the weight of a 75% fill) is with the valve stem at 4:00 o'clock.

    That's a really useful chart, because it goes low enough to include our small tractor's equipped tires. Thanks!

    I used the garden hose adapter from TSC and some fittings to adapt it to a 15 gallon sprayer tank and just dumped the fluid in the tank and every few gallons shut if off and purged the air. I am sure i came out cheaper than that device!!!!

    Simplified version:

    The climate here doesn't need antifreeze so I made this garden hose to tire adapter. I removed the nub in the tire adapter that opens its check valve, since with the Schrader valve removed from the tire there's nothing to push on the nub.

    Caution, your house water pressure is greater than the tire is rated for. A couple of times per tire, rotate the tire stem to the top and 'burp' off the excess air pressure.
