    This December the tires on my new Permagreen froze. The fluid in the tires at about 10-20 degrees seemed to freeze. I could not move the machine by pushing it while it was in neutral. Permagreen is telling the Lesco dealer that couldn't happen and they never had problems. The fluid is suppose to be good to -20. Just curious, did anybody else have their tires freeze. They are OK now.

    Yup, mine did the same thing. I make sure I have the valve steps at the top when I park it now.
    I hadproblems with full strenght RV antifreeze in the tank too. It froze solid when the temps went down in the teens back in Dec.
