Wheel tread width pics

Tue Oct 23, 2012 4:02 pm

Hi all...

I'm sure that many of you have seen the page in the manual that diagrams the different configurations of rear wheel tread width. This pic in the manual quite frankly confuses me as it tries to show all possible combinations in one slide. Has anyone ever considered a pictorial views of the wheel tread width on an actual cub? As a visual learner, it would be really cool to have some pics of an actual tractor with the wheels set at the various widths...

Just wishful thinking.

I had started on something similar a couple years ago, but, like the timeline project, it got put on the back burner. I don't even know where my draft copy is anymore. If somebody were to take this project and run with it I think it would be good for the members.

Ever try swapping tires out on a fast hitch Cub??? There is a reason I leave the loaded ag tires on all year now.... :roll:

Look at the pictures on the page before the drawings (disc in and disc out) and then imagine the 4 positions possible with the rim; inside and outside the disc, lug away from tractor and lug in towards the tractor (both inside and outside the disc). That is a pretty big number of tire changes.

Go for it Mike!

I would be more than willing to compile a listing of pics of various tread widths and post it. As to trying all the configurations on MY cub, if someone would come and help make the swaps, I'd be glad to. It's a LOT of work for one guy to do. Took me 45 minutes at least to do the two on Merlin when I just changed them.

On a serious note... If folks would pm me or email me some pics of their Cub and its wheel configuration, I would be glad to compile... I have two already done with my two cubs...

Please PM me! Thanks!

Sounds like a good CubFest project.
Wedge the front axle, jack up the rear end, and play musical tires/rims.

Throw in the adjustable front axle and you got a good weekends work of various combinations. :lol: It would make a good half days event for a cubfest :mrgreen:

I agree, this would be an excellent Cubfest project!

I also agree swapping wheels is a lot of work for one person. With several sets of hands, it would be a breeze.

Use a Cub with turf tires. Then you only have to change one side.

Agree with Hengy, if a few have different mount tires, and I'm sure they do, send him the pics, and he will compile them.\
(Dang, Eugene, sent me to google again)

I'd be glad to do it! Pics of the tractor, then of the wheel dish and lugs on the rim. If you'd rather email, my address is hengelsber@aol.com. Looking forward to it!

Kirk,

What is between the left wheel disc and wheel spacer?
