    New wheel spacers installed

    Just installed new 3” wheel spacers from Bro-Tek. Was going to the 2” as listed on the website, but he also makes 3”.
    Will give an update later as to the difference they made.

    You'll love them I added spacers to one of my tractors and an absolute world of difference. Tractor used to be kind of sketchy moving round bales. It's not an issue anymore.

    Used the tractor yesterday after installing them, what a difference! When driving on rough ground and a rear wheel drops into a hole, tractor doesn’t throw you around as bad, and much more stable with a loaded bucket!

    So does that mean 3" per wheel or 3" total? Any worries about axle strain? Thinking about doing this myself.

    3” per side. Not too worried about axle strain as most of my use is loader work.

    I love the idea of the stability, but don't want to be running over unblown snow. The rear tires on my 3046R are almost exactly the width of the 59" blower.

    That works. How big a wrestling match is it to wrangle those wheels?
