im so proud of my murray lol. It started right up on 2 month old gas and ran PERFECT. Then did a little dirt work with it and she loved it. chugalug chugalug right along lol. I even broke the ratchet strap that I had holding the blade up lol. Not bad considering their was no weight on it beside my *** lol. Did have the tire chains on. I need a short peice of chain to keep the blade from swinging down too far. The problem is that the blade will hook on something and then the tractor drives right up over top of it lol.

Good news, got my tire fixed! I put some slime in there and after that didnt fix it, I inspected a little closer and found a small hole. I poked through there with a screwdriver and found out it was quite a bit bigger than I thought, so I found a bolt that fit pretty tight in the hole and put a big washer on the outside and the inside and tightened her up as tight as I could, and........NO LEAKS. At least none that I can see/feel/hear. Ill have to see how it is in the morning, but its been holding for a couple hours now.

yea seems like it does. It leaks some though, so its lighter than it should be........itd do better if it was heavier.

I would leave it too. Too bad it's not in the back tire to give you a little extra grab in the mud LoL.
