Counterweight Blue
Tractor Tire Ballast Fluid

Home Page

After several years of research and product development the new Counterweight Blue™ fluid was created.  It possesses all of the desired characteristics without the toxic, corrosive and flammable properties typically found in tire fills. We assembled all the necessary equipment so that dealers can do the job themselves. When a system is purchased, all of the required training and support to start up quickly and efficiently is provided. Using Counterweight Blue™ for tires immediately becomes profitable rather than an expense for dealers.

Tire weighting costs are extremely small compared with the amount of savings it provides by extending tire life alone. Counterweight Blue has been used in many off-road environments, and for good reasons.

  • The added weight increases draw-bar pull by putting weight at the lowest point possible.
  • Weighted tires enable the tread to grip the earth more firmly for maximum traction, less slippage and greater friction. Increased tire life is the direct result.
  • Weighted tires also reduce the shock effects of up and down bouncing and of slip-and-grip drive wheel action to reduce total wear on vehicles.

Counterweight Blue also has distinct advantages over alternative products like powdered lead, bolt-on metal weights, calcium salt solutions and methanol.

  • Greater economics, greater convenience. Cast iron weights and powdered lead are more expensive and difficult to install.
  • Better tire profile. Added weight outside the tire tends to flatten and distort the cross-sectional profile of a tire whereas Counterweight Blue liquid does not.
  • Non-hazardous.  Counterweight Blue is a non-toxic, all natural product.  Products like methanol are flammable and toxic.
After you decide to carry Counterweight Blue at your business, we will install, at no cost to you, a tank and pump system needed to quickly and safely fill tires.  We will deliver the system to your business and train your employees how to use the system effecitively. 

Counterweight Blue is manufactured by Carbellus and distributed by Valley Farm and Equipment.
