I have a recently acquired Oliver 770 with loaded tires-- never had a tractor with loaded tires-- this morning, one of them is low. How do I add fluid to this? Ignorant question... Probably not possible to just add some air to it? Thanks

Yes you can air the tire, just make sure the valve stem is on the top side. A fluided tire is usually only 2/3 full of fluid and 1/3 air. If the tire was filled completely with fluid the tires would soon give way as the air absorbs the shock of rough ground and any bouncing that may occur while using the tractor

Yes, you can add air to the tire. Position the tire so the valve stem is on top ( 12 o'clock position ). Add air.

I would find a place you dont want the weeds to grow, put the stem at the bottom and drain that crap out. Then refill with air. I dont like what fluid does to wheels and rims. Just my 2 cents. Jeff

I agree with Jeff. If you need weight,you can add wheel weights.

Thanks for the replies-- The tires on this tractor will probably need to be replaced at some point- I probably will take the fluid out. The tractor seems pretty heavy and has enough weight for my purposes, I think. I put air in the low tire and am back in business for today. Best Regards

If we get a tractor with fluid in the tires we will take it out or else it rusts the rims and rots tires. so we take the loader and put a little pressure on the tires

What are they filled with? The comments below apply only to chloride solutions, AND if you don't WASH IT OFF WITH SOAP if it spills. If it is Rim Guard (beet juice) it is non corrosive. A 13.6x38 tire will have over 600 lbs of liquid ballast, thats a LOT of weights. I would reccomend taking the weight off the tire while inflating to help keep the liquid from leaking.

If the tire is going down it is leaking fluid. They don't just spontaneously go soft/flat for no reason.

With no obvious wetness, the fluid is likely to be trapped outside the tube, against the rim.

If the tire keeps going down you will want to remove it and clean up the fluid ASAP, unless you want to buy a new rim.
