    Many tractors have been designed like what you described to enhance the turns.

    Off form what? It's not a car. If you did set it to 0, it would not turn well. And, the front end would tend to washout.

    Tractors have a much tighter turning radius, than a car. The camber is set to allow the tires to carve the turn, like a ski does, rather than skate.

    Keep your tires properly inflated.

    What we need is more idiot control.

    Thanks for the info,We have a 1981 Ford tractor w/loader and that is what I was going by.The Ford camber is at (0") so I just thought that this kubota just need some adjustment.Thanks for all that replys.

    I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with any of these posts...but my camber doesn't appear to be anywhere near what McGyyver describes. Granted, mine is a Deere, his a Kubota.
    I do suggest he pop down to his local Kubota dealer and just see how his compares with other Kubota's of the same size.

    Every make, and model tractor is different.

    If you wanted to do that, you would need to compare it to more than one L2800DT, to really be conclusive.

    Because it's unlikely that both sides are screwed up, and still within a 1/16" of each other, I'm betting it's normal for that model. But, anything is possible.

    I have a Kubota L4200 and it's the same way, about 1" on each wheel.
    (But when the wheel leans outward at the top, it's called positive camber, not negative.)

    My 3400 (same frame and chassis as 2800) has a pretty good lean to the front tires. Does yours have AG tires or industrials? It looks worse with AGs. As far as I know there's no adjustment.

    Take a look at the front wheels some old tricycle front end tractors sometime.
    Now, there's some serious camber...
