    Default Re: 2011 Kubota B3300SU - Spacers Needed?

    I'd like to hear how the chains and post-spacer setup is working out. I am in the same boat looking for spacers but I have the 2-link, V-bar chains sitting right next to me as I type this very moment. How has it turned out for you?

    Any consensus on the spacer options? I cannot even locate the part number for the kubota part(s).

    On my B3030 I tried to use the same type of chain and quickly found out that they would hit the inside fender of the tractor. I added the kubota wheel spacers and the problem was solved, not to mention the improved stability. I got mine through the dealer.

    I have my spacers on & they've definitely made me feel safer in the woods. I haven't pulled the trigger on chains. My neighbor who knows a lot more than I about tractors feels that with my backhoe & weighted rears I'm likely not going to need them for my purposes.

    I have one thing to say about chains: In the land of snow and ice, the man with chains is king.

    Based on your location, I'd have to assume you use your machine on snow & ice, and if so, there will be times when you'll need chains. Maybe not always, but you will wish you had them on occasion.

    AStanton is right. Chains will make that thing NEARLY unstoppable.

    All true. I plow with my Tacoma & I do have chains for it. At this point my tractor will be for pushing back snow if/when things start to really pile up.
