Smarg, I posted this at 3:56, you might have missed it. Yes they may be loaded with liquid.

About 20 psi in the front and 12 to 16 in the rear. Check out this page of the manual. http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/Cub%20 ... age-52.jpg

That's a loaded question! :lol: They may or may not be loaded with liquid. That depends on the previous owner.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Loaded= calcium chloride (salt water), anti-freeze, beet juice, or any other appropriate non freezing liquid.

When I got my Cub, the rear tires were loaded with Calcium Chloride... and it had evidently leaked as my rims were quite rusty from it. I took them down to Les Schwab and they drained them and put in new tubes. I refinished the rims and have been quite satisfied. So far, with everything I've used my tractor for, I haven't missed the loaded tires. I do have a set of rear wheel weights but haven't had a need to bolt them on (yet).

You aren't as "alone" as you think. Take a look at the member map. Cub fans are everywhere! You'll probably find a few pins nearby.
