Interested cuz I have exact same tractor and tire combo! I also searched the manual and on line for pressures with no luck.

The B2601 manual only lists tires by size, not type.

What are inflation pressures for my R14s?
I think the tire sidewall will tell you the acceptable range of tire pressures. If just the max pressure is listed, I would probably start at the mid point.

R14 tires have been referred to as "balloon like" if I remember correctly. I think you will need to pick a pressure and see how it performs for your needs.

20 lbs all around, according to my salesman. This aligned pretty well with the chart in my manual.

Will see what they're at when I finally get around to checking them. Think I'll keep fronts up and maybe put rears at 20 psi for better ride. Saw an R14 post on TBN that showed some going down into the teens in rear pressure on R14s, for ride quality.

If your rears are filled, you run the risk of blowing the tires off of the rims because of lower pressure.
