So, I put in a maximum bid of $475 via the Internet on that Eddins wagon I mentioned earlier (scroll down several messages - pics are there) and ended up winning it. Brought it home yesterday and it augers - at least it should - everything turns and the vertical auger isn't worn very much. Surprised me. It has 56x16 airplane tires on it and I'm wondering if there's a tractor or implement tire that would cross to that size. The tires on it are worn slam out and the nylon cords are showing. Left one needs air and the valve stem is nowhere to be found. Not sure where to get used airplane tires or how much they would cost. Also, still can't find out much info on this unit except that it was made in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Any info experience you may have with a wagon like this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Pretty neat old auger wagon. I grew up in Henry County, Illinois, was the "Hog Capitol of the World" back in the 1950'&"60's. Everybody raised hogs and had an auger wagon. Heider auger wagons probably most popular, the Grain-O-Vator was a REAL close 2nd. They made a tandem axle two compartment model with a swing out unloading auger that the large producers favored. Probably held 125 bushel, maybe a bit more. Our Heider held 90 bushel stock but with a foot of sideboards could haul 100 bushel or a bit more. 5500# of ground shellcorn and some supplements was my normal load every other day from the feedmill. The load settled around the auger in the bottom pretty solid on the 5-6 mile trip home, had to really ease the clutch out easy to start unloading. The next to last year Dad farmed he planted 40 acres of soybeans. Hired them combined, the Heider got "grain cart duty", the 4400 Deere had a 90 bushel grain tank, the Heider was a good match. The next year Dad hired the beans and all the corn combined, same guy, same 4400.

check out genscotire.com, I have bought several sets for tractor front and are reasonable on prices.

If they are airplane tires don't worry about cords showing as there are probably 20 or more layers there, may can run without air as they are quite stiff.

Pete - pretty sure the left one has no air in it. It has a small but noticeable bulge at the bottom. Pulled it 25 miles to get it home w/no problems. The sidewall says these are 32 ply tires. Maybe I could get by for a few years yet by just putting a new tube in the low one.
