    Where did you get yours, what kind are they, and how much did they cost?

    I have seen many with 2x4 skids. the ones with tires are lawnmower tires. Depending on how hard the surface is you plan to put your tractor will determine what type of tires are needed. I would suggest dolly/handtruck pneumatic tires. they are designed to be closer to the ground and to hold lots of weight. you could probably find some at the hardware or equipment store, but I'm not sure on the price.

    Pneumatic tires are about 10 dollars each at TSC.

    Quote:[​IMG] man! I'd go find a junk yard then. Might get lucky. I have skids and a 4 wheeler. much cheaper with skids.

    Mine came off an old BBQ we got rid of. The wheels still worked great.
