I deal in the compact tractors, and one of my greatest concerns is always hills and overloading the front loader, with my often "novice" tractor buyers. I always recommend my buyers have their tires filled with Antifreeze,,, and I turn the tires around to the widest position to offer stability. But for many of these people in my region, there are many hills, and this is sometimes not enough. But they are only managing 2-15 acres max. And a full size tractor is something they can't won't or don't concider. Nor is is economically feasible. So my queston to any of you out there,,,, is there any way to add 6 inches to each side of a compact tractors axles? For my hill maintaning clients I think it would be very beneficial. Especially in these little Yanmars! THey are only 38 inches wide when freight narrowed. I add 9 inches by turning the wheels, But that still seams awefully narrow! I sell all my little tractors with a tiller on them for counter balance, when using the loader. But I really feel being able to install longer axle shafts, or adding on to the exsisting shafts, (provided that would be strong enough) Would be a keen safety feature.
