    Ours is on pavement(albeit sometimes snowy) 98% of the time, just a tad over 300 hours on tires that were new with the machine. I'd say they have 40% left. So they'll probably be done around 500 hours or so. I bet they would wear faster if we used the machine year around where it would see more dry pavement/dirt use.

    Our skid hardly sees dirt. We just put on Mongo's before the snow flew in December, its what the city has been running for the leaf pick up's on their skids. The Mongo's are retread's with a 2 year warrenty, nice deep lugs that add about 2inches in height, bead locking. We also filled the tires to aid in traction, as the machine gets more use in the winter than the summer.

    Found a link but their price seems goofy, but has picture of the tread pattern.

    Edit: If I can remember off the top of my head it was only $750 for 4 tires including mounting and filling.

    Thanks for the reply Pro-Turf. Wow all the way out to California for your new HydroSeeder. I cannot wait to see you post pictures of it. Hydroseeding has something I have always wanted to get into doing, seems like to much fun not to do!

    Here are a few pics of our new hydroseeder.

    It is a Bowie 1500 (only has 80 hours on it), mounted on an International 4400.

    This is exactly what we were looking for, unfortunately it is located in California...couldn't be further from where we are in New Hampshire! Can't wait to get this back home & letter it up & do a few other small things we have in mind & then most importantly...PUT IT TO WORK!!

    I don't think you got a inheritance but I do think your growing dope and selling it by the truck load. That's why you guys put the sides on the fords, so you can haul it without the DEA seeing it. Most people measure their truck bodies in yards but you measure them in ounces.

    Nice stuff, looks like it will make you some money. DID you sell the old unit? how much were you selling that for again?
