I was going to keep my 51 VAC with the original 11.2-10 x 34 rears after both mine blew up but the cost of new rubber is a killer. I found 2 sources one for $674.00 plus the cost of tube and shipping. The low price was for Titans at local tire dealer for $615.00 each plus tube cost. I finally decided to just find some 28 inch hubs and rims somewhere, put some good used tires on it,then spend the difference on refurbishing this great little tractor.

Barry I do not know where you are at but I have some 28" hubs wheels and even some used rubber I would sell. Located in western Wisconsin.

I'm in southwest Missouri, sort of between Joplin and Springfield. I'd probably be interested but would have to have them freighted.

I changed mine over years ago. I've a 6 ft Woods belly finish mower under it and first gear was just to tall for much of anything. You were always working just off idle. Like was said earlier it WILL make a quite a difference in your gearing..... .....for my purpose it worked great

I'm sure you and mj are right. I really like the way the tractor looks with the 34's but that tall tire robs a lot of low end power.

I'll more than likely sand and paint the wheels and hubs and save them till I can afford 34 inch rubber, sorry.

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 ...
