Water-Filled Wheel Weights
You can reduce compaction and tire wear with this new "water weight" system for 4-WD tractors that allows you to increase or decrease wheel weight in minutes as field conditions dictate.
The AddTrac system from Trellco Tire, Cleveland, N. Dak., consists of a water-filled steel tank with self-locking wedges that al-low installation in 10 minutes per wheel. It's custom-designed in sizes to fit all 4-WD tractors with planetary wheel systems. It fits flush with the outer edge of tires and eliminates the need for fluid in tires or suitcase weights.
Simply add or drain water to increase or decrease weight as field conditions and operations call for.
Smallest system, for 24.5 by 32-in. tires, adds a total of 2,100 lbs.; largest, for 850 by 42-in. tires, adds 6,500 lbs.
Sells for $1,600 to $2,400 for set of four.
