    Rough Ride

    So I was taking the trash out tonight which entails using the 2305 to haul the cans down to the end of the driveway and I noticed a persistent rough ride/bumping feeling as if there were flat spots in the rear tires or I was driving over small speed bumps every 20' or so. The driveway is a quarter mile long and paved and the machine did all the way down and back. I checked the machine over and otherwise ran fine. Impossible to have flat spots since it sits for no more than five days a a time. Any thoughts?

    One thought, could a tire be failing. A tire is made of a series of laminations of rubber compounds. As rubber ages these layers can delaminates/separate which can make bulges in tire.

    Flat spot

    I'm not sure about a 2305 but we can get a rough ride on from the fluid in the rear tires sloshing. It will usually eventually get up to speed but you can feel it until then.

    I've had truck tires flat spot over night until they warmed up, especially if they were parked with a load on them. That was really evident with the old bias ply tires but radials will do it as well.

    Raise the rear of the tractor and spin the wheels to find out of round tires. If it's a front tire it will be less noticeable due to the axle pivot. Raise one front at a time and give them a spin. Must be a fairly large deviation for it to feel that bad, but easy to find.

    May be a stupid question but, do you have chains on?

    How's the tire pressure? Perhaps one is going flat.

    Turf tires or R4's?

    The factory tires on my pick-up will do this when it is cold - get flat spots after sitting overnight which will make the truck thump going down the road until the tires warm up.

    Are you sure it is the machine and not the driveway?

    Seeing that the rear tires are a little more than 2' in diameter, a "flat spot" would touch the ground every 6+' not 20. The front tires are even smaller, so they'd be even more noticeable...

    Are you in 4WD?

    Drive shaft issues?

    Thanks for the insight guys. The driveway is very smooth with no dips. I'll jack up the rear end to inspect further. Any other thoughts - I'm all ears
