permagreen question

This is my first winter storing my permagreen. this morning i went out to just start it up and let it run a few minutes and noticed the tires were soft. no leaks. however the manual i got off their website ( don't have an original, was never given one) does not tell you how much air to put in the tires. whats the deal?

Aren't the fronts liquid filled? Of course there's still room for air in a liquid filled tire... But I was told they were. cold weather certianly takes its toll on rubber tires and their ability to hold air. I'd go with what's on the tire, or 5 under.

Yeah, there filled with antifreeze and water. Just wasn't sure about the recomended PSI.

they are going to lose pressure throught the cold weather...they always do. the strange thing, is that they don't re-inflate themslves when the weather warms back up.

You might want to call PG to verify, but I believe the PSI is supposed to be 15 on all tires. It is not written anywhere in the manual that I can find.

Not necessary to add antifreeze, just add a few pounds of air. Probably a good idea to check your PSI once each month, as lower pressure affects your ground speed and application rate.
