Just took delivery of a 3038E I purchased at auction.
As I was giving it the once over in my garage post delivery, I decided to see if the rear tires were filled. The valve stem was clocked at 3 o'clock so I let some air out. Sure enough, liquid came with it. The liquid appears to be plain water. It is clear and seems to be odorless. I declined to taste it. This tractor appears to have spent it's prior life in Virginia where maybe they don't worry about freezing. Me, it is common for the high temperature to be -5 degrees F for weeks at a time in January.
Is there any simple way to identify whether it is filled with "real" ballast or just plain water? If I had an accurate scale I would know what to do, but I don't...
