    Tire Pressure

    I run 10 lbs on the rear tires, but because of the loader, I run the max pressure in the front tires.

    It is, but I have seen guys talking about doing different things in different situations. Most of the time, the guys here are smarter than the owners manual. Says 30 pounds all the way around. Was wondering if you could go lower on the back tires for better traction.

    I don’t have a 2038 or know what type tires you have or the size, but -

    On my 2520 with R4’s I run 10# in the rears in the summer for mowing. It made a huge difference in the ride. When my chains go on for winter I put them back up to 20-25. I don’t leave them low in the winter because of cold causing loss of tire pressure.

    Fronts I run 25# year round unless I am doing heavy loader work then up them to 30#.

    If I had turf tires I would find different pressures.

    2038R On my turfs I run 15 all the way around, rides much better. If I hang 400 pounds on the front I would need to run 20 at least as they really squat. On it I don’t think I would want to run 10 front. Rears maybe but it seems pretty decent at 15.

    400 turfs 8 rear and 10-12 front

    The dealer I bought my tractor from installed the plow and chains. First use it spun way to easily even with the diff lock. Found they had 30 lbs in the rear tires. Probably to make the chains tight. After lowering the pressure to 10 lbs it turned into a tank. Rode way better to boot.

    I'm a 30# front 10# rear guy too. Rides like a brick as it is, it rides way worse than a brick with more than 10# in the rears.
