  2. MTD Tractor Forum
    I have a 2015 Troy Bilt Super Bronco that I use to mow about 1+ acre. The area has many trees, garden/flower beds,etc. The steering, especially at slow speeds, is difficult to turn. Has anyone developed a poor man's power steering or lower drag for turning? I once read about using roller...

    Looking at gathering parts for the 77 PK 1614 resto/mod. It's got what appears to be original Goodyear tires front/rear. But the rears are 7.50-16. Wondering what everyone is running? I've looked at the Carlisle rears (8.00-16 R1), and the Deestone D401 F2 3 rib front. I want to stay as...

    I have a Gravely 816S which I purchased new in 1976. I am attempting to find new front tires for it. The owners manual says the tire size is 16 X 5:50-5. That tire size appears to be completely unavailable today. My measurements of the original tires and wheel are: Wheel Diameter - 9"; Tire...

    I couldn't resist picking these up. I had been watching these on ePay for quite some time, but when I first encountered them the seller had a very high shipping price on them. Then, while perusing my watch list on Wednesday, I noticed that the shipping was now free, plus the tire price was...

  9. Compact Utility and Farm Tractor Forum
    I have a near new set of "Rice tires" and they are really cutting up the yard. The main reason I bought a compact size tractor was because the standard 8n size tractor is so heavy and hard on yards. The Shibaura 14 I bought just happened to have a almost new set of the Rice Tires... I wondered...
  10. John Deere Tractor Forum
    About a year ago I moved to a new house w/an acre lot. Picked up an '83 John Deere 212 (brand new engine) to help w/the chores. The only issue I've had with it is traction- slips a bit on wet grass, but most problems in snow going up any incline. I plowed the driveway without much issue, but...

    I'd like to replace some old cracked and dryrotting Goodyear tires on my MF12. Most of the time I will be using the tractor to cut grass, but certainly plan to garden, and perhaps push the occasional snow. My property does have some steep banks that the turfs tend to slip a bit on unless...
