Why do people use beet juice in tractor tires?

The advantages of beet juice are that it is not toxic or corrosive to wheels. It is freeze-resistant to minus 35 F. It weighs about 11.0 pounds per gallon. Like the calcium chloride option, it is better at adding weight to the tractor than many other liquid ballast options.

Always consult the equipment operator's manual and follow the safety instructions before operating or repairing any tractor or equipment, or attempting any task. Adding liquid ballast to your tractor tires can significantly improve performance in many ways. Watch the new Ask Tractor Mike video interview that explores why beet juice may be the best tire ballast.
