|Calcium chloride, when dissolved and used as a liquid for tire ballast, will provide a number of benefits. It will increase traction, drawbar pull, tire and tractor life, and will also help you conserve fuel.
Your local implement or tire dealer will assist with tire hydraflation. A 28% solution of calcium chloride will give a freezing point of below -35°C.
There are a number of ways you can prepare 100 kg of 28% calcium chloride solution:
- mix 64 litres of cold tap water and 36 kg 77% flakes, or
- mix 70 litres of cold tap water and 30 kg 94% granules, or
- mix 22 litres of cold tap water and 58 litres (77 kg) of 36% solution.
