How to Use Wheel Spacers to Stabilize Your Tractor

We want to help you understand how to stabilize your tractor with wheel spacers.

And as a quick aside --- we are here to help you purchase a new tractor when the time is right.

Let’s get to the details.

What are Wheel Spacers?

In previous articles, we have covered many of the various ballasting methods.

All these methods can improve your tractor’s balance, stability, traction, and productivity.

Now we are going to add one more option in your tractor balancing and configuration toolbox.

That option is the use of “Wheel Spacers.”

Wheel spacers move your wheels further from the centerline of the tractor --- making the tractor’s wheelbase wider.

How Do They Work?

Now let’s talk about how they work.

Wheel spacers set your tractor to a wider wheelbase.

This typically increases the side-to-side stability of a tractor in many operating conditions. Giving your tractor a wider tire footprint is another way to make your tractor more balanced and productive.

You can add wheel spacers to almost any combination of tire type and tire-&-wheel configuration. Of course, check with your local dealer or mechanic.

When Should You Use Them?

Wheel spacers are perfect for a tractor that operates on a hilly terrain.

They may be needed to make your tractor a better fit for uses such as planting bed and crop row spacings --- or other tractor operating requirements.

You can now purchase and install wheel spacers for several tractor brands of tractors with varied tire and wheel configurations. Check with your local tractor dealer or mechanic.

Wheel spacers are great for adding stability and increasing your tractor balance. They will improve your tractor’s overall performance in a wide range of terrain and applications.

Again --- your tractor dealer or mechanic can help you determine if wheel spacers are the right choice for your situation.

Hopefully, this brief article has helped you understand how to use wheel spacers to improve your tractor’s stability and performance.
