    Default How to Jack up A tractor?

    Hi. I've got a B2150 and need to remove my Front and Rear wheels to take them to have new tires mounted.

    Where is it safe to put a jack under the rear to jack it up to remove the wheels ?

    I have a FEL and firgure I can use it to lift the front while I remove the front wheel and then lower the front onto some blocks with lumber.

    But the rear concerns me a lot more as it is larger and heavier and I don't know where the proper lifting/jacking point is on the axle.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks, Tim

    Only thing that bothers me here is that an "old" SOLID tractor with a lot of cast iron in the rear axle was used as a demo. What are the concerns with those tractors with a lot of cast aluminum housings for the rear axle? And none to thick aluminum I would bet at that. I am always a little nervous about where to best support when jacking or blocking.

    Agreed. Words to live by.

    Thanks for the caution... I'll take my time and think each step through.

    I would only jack from steel frame members.

    MAKE sure you put jack stands under. DO NOT depend only on the jack.

    Parking brake on,if gear tranny use low,block rear tires,lift tires just enough of the ground to slide tire off...great advice given by others.

    Good advice indeed.

    It's a scary proposition to jack something up this heavy... even changing a car tire makes me feel uneasy.

    As I jack it up, I'll be sure to place Blocks/Lumber under the axle and lift only as high as necessary to get the wheel off.

    I put floor jack under part where the drawbar is attached and jack up whole rear end. Tractor will be free to rotate around attachment point of front axle once both rear wheels are off the ground, so don't depend on this to hold it up safely. Jacking from the center makes it easy to block both sides and lower it down on the blocks. If you jack out by each wheel, there's no room to put the blocks in. I leave the jack snugged up under the drawbar with a little force on it, just in case one of the blocks fails you've got another line of defense to help hold it up long enough for you to run.
