I am sure it has been posted before, but I tried and tried to find the post without too much luck

I have a 4016 Ingersoll and use it to mow, plow snow, and also just built a box blade for it.

I have wanted to put a set of ags on it, but the local dealer told me that most of the ag tires available will interfere with the mower deck.

What are you running for ags with a mower deck?

Thanks

svon89,

First, I really like your avatar of the MH Pony. Is that yours? I have a few Ponys myself just over the border from you in Mystic, CT.

I put Carlisle 8-16 R-1 ags on my 446 and while I have not mowed with them on, I know there are others who have used the same tires on their 4000 series Ingersolls without any problems with deck interference. :trink40:

MHing43, Yes I owned that Pony for quite a while. Problem was once I restored it, I lost interest in it, so I ended up trading it off. I enjoy actually working on old tractors, but have the Ingersoll to do the mowing and plowing without worry something will break down.
I went to my local dealer, and he said the 8-16 he could put on would cause problems with the mower deck. I will have to ask what kind he could get.
MHing43, you don't have a Pony in its work cloths do you? I would not mind picking up another and leaving it original. I even have a rear cord wood saw for one.

I have a set of Firestone 9.5-16 lugs on a 4020PS for winter and garden use. I do not use them to mow with so unsure if they would rub on a mower deck. They do have enough fender clearance but I would not be able to put tire chains on due to lack of clearance. I also have the same tires on my dad's 1972 Case 444 and they fit nicely. Both sets of tires are loaded and I keep the wheel weights on the rims year round.

svon89,

I do, in fact, have a few Ponys that I wouldn't mind moving. Please send me a PM and we can discuss!:trink40:

I would also be interested in knowing who the local Ingersoll dealer is that you're talking to. I purchased my first Ingersoll in RI and it may be the same dealer.

Your machine looks nice! Where did you pick up those wheel weights that are mounted on the inside of the rim (the black ones)?

The inside wheel weights came from an ebay auction. The seller stated they came off a Case GT so I took a chance. Happy I did...I was worried the left side would rub on the hydraulic drive motor but I have 1/4 inch of clearance. I do not know the origional purpose / manufacture for these weights but it seems they were made just right for the Case/Ingersoll 400/4000 series.

Back on subject...using Ag lugs while mowing will cause some turf damage even if you are careful.

Jasongeurink, That is a very nice looking tractor. If I can find an extra set of rims at a reasonable price, I would be tempted to buy them and get a set of the 9.5s like yours.

You might find that the treads you have now would be satisfactory with a good set of weights on them. I have adapters that fit your wheels and hold up to 4 25 lb. or 3 50 lb. weight bench weights. They are also easy to take on and off because you add and remove the weights by sliding 25 pound weights at a time on a mounted rod instead of man-handling 50-100 pounds while trying to run bolts thru them.
