DC tires?

Has anyone ever tried using 18.4-38 tires on a DC? I bought a 14ft Krause disc this weekend, and don"t have enough tire to pull it. The old gal acts like she has plenty of power just short on traction.

Do you have 3 sets of wheel weights on the tractor now? Dads DC3 always had three sets. It always pulled a 14 foot Case disc in corn stalks. Later on a 730 replaced it, and after that a 1030 got the job of pulling the same disc. The dc became the feed wagon tractor, it could out pull the 1030 in mud.

I like big tires as well. (I have 15.5's on mine with 14" rims.) I don't know what tires you have now but a good set of 13.6x38's with 80% fluid will pull unbelievably. We have always kept Dad's '51 DC(bought new) in good 13.6s and for it's size it is the best pulling tractor on the farm. A 10' disk is PLENTY for a DC, especially in spring plowing.

I have 20.8 X 38's on 2 of mine. It is amazing what they will pull, especially in mud. A lot of the additional traction is due to the higher drawbar. If you go to Tractor Photos and search for (Case DC DKase) you will find a picture of one of them. Kinda a dark picture, but you will get an idea of what it looks like. DK

I have run 18.4 x 38's on a Farmall M. This is about the same power tractor I would think. The case Dc might be a little stonger. I was pulling a 10 foot disk with a 12 foot springtooth behind it. The wider tire helps, but you really need weight. The first time over on sod was murder.
I spun at every rise and fall. Adding about 300 lbs per side helped a lot.

I think your gonna be short on tractor all the way around, but maybe you could try duals? That way if it didn't work out you wouldn't be stuck with the bigger tires and rims. Josh

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
