    I have a 36" WB Bobcat Gear Drive and one of the drive tires has a flat. The owners manuel does not give me much information. Does it have a tube or not? I've looked in two mail order suppliers catalogs and they list different OEM #'s than does my manuel.

    THanks!

    My old hydro was tubeless, if you can't push in the valve stem than it is tubeless.

    If you can't personally tell if it's tube or tubless then do yourself a BIg favor and let your friendly local dealer do everything for you!

    Unless you bought the mower used or something there should be NO tube. Also, you might try putting some tire sealant in the tire and see if that works.

    New tire, or a tube unless the wheel was damaged somehow...

    since I am not the most mechanically inclined person, is it hard to put on?
