It's a self-propelled machine, so No. With one drive wheel it would want to go in circles.The Meal wrote: ↑Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:09 amCan you rig up a ski/skid of some sort (I'm thinking plastic milk bottle at the foot of a piece of wood) to replace the troublesome wheel? Just enough to get by once or twice until you can get the tire replaced? It wouldn't be great (especially if you only have one wheel acting as the locomotion for the machine), but still better than shoveling.
That's not a bad idea. I might even have a can in my car, in lieu of a spare tire. I should look.
I put the leaky wheel back on the machine this morning so that I could move it out of the way and get my garage back. It looks like it will hold enough air to be functional for another day or two. In the unlikely event that I need to blow tonight's snow, I think I can cripple it through. But we're only expecting 1-3" of the usual slop, followed by warming temperatures, so I doubt that I'll even need to shovel. The new tires should be here before we get any more snow.
Here's a moot question: tubeless or tubed tires? I bought tubeless because that's what was on there before, and they're cheaper. But it seems like a tubed tire would be more durable. Which would you have bought?
