How Do I Remove and Install My Tractor’s Front Wheels?

We want to help you remove and install your tractor’s front wheels.



If you do not feel that you understand these steps, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic. Also always consult your tractor owner’s manual for model-specific information.


Time to get started.



Reason:

  • To remove and install your tractor’s front wheels.



1. Park the tractor safely and securely.

2. Shut off the engine.


Place chocks (A, Fig. 1) on each driving direction of the front and rear wheels.


A - Chock (8 pieces)













NOTE:

  • Make sure that the parking brake is securely engaged.

  • Make sure to lower any implements to the ground.


3. Loosen the front wheel bolts.

  • Half turn the wheel bolts (A, Fig. 2) from the front wheel (B, Fig. 2).

  • Do the preceding procedure to all the front wheel bolts.

  • Do the preceding procedure to the other front wheel.

B - Front wheel



Note:

  • Do not remove the two front wheels at the same time unless it is necessary.





4. Remove the front wheels.

  • Lift the front wheels (A, Fig. 3).







- Place suitable lifting equipment (B, Fig. 3) underneath the front axle (C, Fig.3).

- Raise the lifting equipment until both front wheels are above the ground.

- Place suitable jack stands (D, Fig. 3) underneath the left and right portion of the front axle.

- Slowly lower the lifting equipment to settle the front axle onto the jack stands.


  • Remove the front wheels.

- Remove the wheel bolts (E, Fig. 4).

Warning:

  • The front wheel is heavy.

  • Have another person assist you during the removal of the front wheel.

Note:

  • Raise the lifting equipment just high enough to slide the jack stands underneath the front axle.

  • Make sure that the left and right front wheels are slightly above the ground when lowered to the jack stands.

  • Do not use the lifting equipment to support the tractor.



5. Install the Front Wheels



IMPORTANT: Avoid damage!

  • Before assembly, ensure that all the component parts are clean and in good condition.

  • Install the front wheels.


- The installation of the front wheels on the tractor is the reverse of the removal procedure.
