Axle Extensions For Deere 4555 MFWD Tractor
Michael, Midland, Tex.: "I recently read in ęBest of FARM SHOW' about the man from Liberal, Mo., who made axle ex-tensions for his Deere 4555 MFWD tractor. The modification was expensive - about $800 per side. There's a much easier, and less expensive, way to accomplish the same thing. A machine shop can build a spacer that bolts between the front hub and wheel. They're similar to the spacers used on rear dual wheels. They can be moved from one tractor to another easily. They also make the tractor turn much sharper. We have a 12-in set of spacers on our 8300 Deere and they work great. There are a number of people in our area who are running spacers like these in sizes ranging from 12 to 20 in. in width with no complaints. The new 8000 series Deere tractors are different from the older models, yet the same spacers will fit, unlike making an axle modification."
