    Default 2011 Kubota B3300SU - Spacers Needed?

    I just purchased a 2011 kubota B3300SU and I intend to put tire chains on it. Does anyone know if the chains will fit without spacers? It appears that the V-Bar 2 Link Ladder style are the way to go if you/I can afford them!!

    15-19.5 Tractor Tire Chains

    Thoughts? Spacers? 4 Link V-bar? I live in NH so we get plenty of snow & ice in the winter.

    Thank you in advance for your feedback!

    Speaking from experience with my B3030, I needed spacers. I went with the kubota ones that gave me an additional 1.5" on each wheel. I would guess that you need a minimum of 2" of space between the wheels and the fenders/frame to run chains. Here's pics of what my spacers did for me.

    Thanks for the feedback. This guy's reviews on eBay are great & he's quite specialized so I feel comfortable that he's engineered his product well but I'll post an update after I get them installed.

    I would want 2" of clearance between the inside of the tire and fender. If you can afford them I would look into getting a set of Tellefsdal Supers. They are imported from Europe, the importer (don't know the name) is in NH and the salesman drops them off at the dealers free of charge. They're probably about $200 to $300 more than the 2 link v bar chains but they are a life time set of chains. Mine are 3 years old and have no wear on them, they have almost no rust yet. They are too aggressive for pavement or cement but they don't slip at all on ice. They also will not fall between tire lugs.

    The first thing I notice with these is that all of the tractor's weight will be carried on the bolts rather than the hub. Personally I'd be sceptical about using them.

    Thank you for the feeback. I was able to cancel my order and I'm going to pursue the Bro-Tek spacers. I truly appreciate you taking the time to help!

    Backhoe stabilizers are nice for taking off wheels and getting them back on (heavy buggers if filled). If you've got scotch, I could come over to supervise.
