Five tire options for 1830 Air Hoe Drills
The correct tires are critical to the overall performance and productivity of an air hoe drill. The John Deere Seeding Group recognizes the wide variance in conditions and tire needs around the world. Five tire options are provided for the 1830 Air Hoe Drill. 
 
To select the appropriate tire, consider the discussions and matrixes below. 
 
Wheels in base equipment on 1830 mainframe are:
  • Dual front caster wheels
  • Dual rear transport wheels 
  Equip the wing sections with duals in the following situations:
  • Maximum flotation is required for wetter soils or conditions
  • No requirement to have openers seeding outboard the outer wing caster tire
  • Rough field conditions that could lead to potentially inconsistent seed depth

The 12.5L-15 tire (code 2210 or 2215) brings load-carrying capacity and puncture resistance.
For additional capabilities in the following situations, consider optioning up to high-flotation, wide-profile knobby tire option (code 2220):
  • Transporting on soft, rural roads
  • Operating in generally wetter, softer field conditions
  • Additional puncture resistance is required

The high-flotation tires (code 2220) provide the best performance in all categories with the exception of tire overlap (pass-to-pass) and replacement tire considerations. The size of the machine will depict whether the mainframe will receive 33x15.5-16.5 or 31x13.5-15 size tires (see matrix below).
Tire selection by base code and option code
 
What tires are included with each base code and option code? This can be a complicated question and present unwarranted confusion. Each machine configuration is equipped with the tire that is meets the minimum load carrying capacities required of the machine size. Below is a chart that describes the tire that accompanies each code.
