How much does it cost to fill tires with beet juice?

It weighs 10.7-11.0 pounds per gallon (about the same as calcium chloride). Since beet juice has the same price and I don't have to take care of the transportation or filling myself, I'm still way ahead of using the Rimguard product, in my humble opinion. You must add air tubes to the tractor wheels with %26 tires, otherwise the steel wheels will corrode quickly. By adding weight to the tires or frame, you can increase the traction of the machine and prevent the wheels from slipping.

Each machine has a slightly different set of weight requirements, and before adding liquid ballast to tires, it's advisable to check the specifications and find the sweet spot between too little and too much. In the meantime, a little strategic thinking is needed to determine where on the tractor chassis they should be placed and, in the end, it becomes clear that the liquid ballast in the tires carries the weight to the lowest point of gravity, where it is most needed. The biggest disadvantage of antifreeze is that if a tire ever breaks, the spilled liquid is very attractive to animals, but it is also very toxic. We have a place that uses a corn-based product, but they charge HUGE labor per hour for ALL the time it takes to fill up the tires.

And while loaded weight plates on the front or rear may offer too much weight, the liquid ballast in tires pushes the weight directly to the lowest point and maintains that center of gravity while in motion. Properly ballasting tires can significantly increase machine efficiency, both in terms of performance and time in the field. Whether you're an agricultural producer, a construction operator, a forester, a utility worker, or an owner with a compact or subcompact tractor to remove snow, Rim Guard's Original Beet Juice tire ballast isn't what your grandfather used, but he probably would have done it if he could have done it. At 10.7 to 11.0 pounds per gallon, Beet Juice Tire Ballast's closest rival is calcium chloride at 10.5-12.0.

I used my 857 to plow snow 2 years ago, it was below zero and if the liquid in my washing machine froze in my tires I didn't notice any difference. Another great advantage is the temperature rating, with the Beet Juice Tire ballast rated at -35 degrees Fahrenheit, water at +32 degrees Fahrenheit, calcium chloride at about -35 degrees Fahrenheit, windshield washer fluid at -25 degrees Fahrenheit and methanol simply flammable.
