    Tire Pressure

    Anyone know where to find the recommended tire pressure on my tractor tire? It's not marked on the tire. Can't look on the edge of the driver door. ;-) I have heard 8lbs, but that was someone's guess.

    8lbs would be good for a lawn mower. What kind of equipment are we talking about. Does it have a loader? Need more info.

    Depending on what you're doing, you could probably go almost to 20 psi. I think I was running around 12psi on my 40U, but I rarely checked the tire pressure and sometimes it would get down under 10psi before I checked it. It may have been 3 or 5 psi one time. I never noticed any difference in handling when the pressure was over 10 or under 10. The tires were something x 24 I think. I don't recall the size off the top of my head.

    I found a recommendation for 16-20psi. I went with 16 for now.
