Hi, depends on the size, ply rating, make and what type of work you are doing.

But our 1194 books states:

12.4 - 32 (6 ply) Field work: 12 PSI (8.3 Bar), Road work 24 PSI (16.5 Bar).

Incidentally the books states 1.65 Bar - but is a CASE book and there are so many mistakes and typos' that it is beyond belief. :roll:

8.3 bar will for sure explode the tyre of 6 ply. 0.8 bar on field is closer to good value. I think 1.65 is pretty high for rears but high pressure will cause less wear, so it may be ok on road.

Your rear tyre pressures should be 12psi for field work 16psi for the road. Front pressure 32psi for both field and road and 40psi if fitted with a front loader.

1 Bar = approximately 15 PSI
but these figures are for cross ply tyres and will certainly leave a very hard run on the road
depends what is on the back 12 - 15 will be fine and you can go down to 8 on field work with a radial to leave a shallower foot print
Do not do this if you are ploughing or other heavy draft work as you may get slippage round the rim when the minimum is 12
for spraying and fertiliser spreading with trailed machines I have often been as low as 6 also for power harrowing etc
