My recently purchased 21 hp Shibaura is very tippy, especially when i have some thing in the front loader. One any kind of side hill on of the rear wheels really wants to pick up easy.
I was wondering what others have done to get some weight in the back to help balance things out a bit. Maybe a 400# box blade would be in order? Would that help things get balanced?
I also noticed that it would be really nice to widen the stance of the rear wheels a bit to help gain some stability. What has anyone done to accomplish this. It seems to me i would have to get some sort of concentric hub, with the same bolt pattern as the wheels, machined that would extend the wheels away from the centerline of the tractor.
Bottom line i need to help lower the center of gravity and widen the stance. Any suggestions? Please help because right now this tractor has some serious pucker factor.
