 Jinma wheel spacing

I found out the hard way when I wnet to
pickup my used JM-180 that my car carrier
trailer ramps were too wide for the tractor
to ride up. I was only able to transfer it to
my trailer by backing up trailers and letting
his ramps go to my deck.
I was able, at home, to reverse the front wheel
to move the front wide enough to get down my
ramps. And I have since reversed the rear rims
to move the rear spacing from 48" C/C to 55" C/C.
My question is:
How wide do you keep you wheels spaced for more stable
operation? Are there advantages to keep it wide or
narrow?
I plan on using a 4' Brush hog, 6' back blade, and
pulling trees from the back of the property.

 Jinma wheel spacing

Hey CorvetteGuy,

On my little 224, I wanted to flip my front wheels around, so that It would have a wider stance, but many told me that it would put too much stress on the front end, so I left them turned in.

On your 180, doesn't it have an adjustable width on the front end? If so, then You will probably be allright in moving your front wheels wider.

However, I do understand, that moveing the wheels wider will make for more stress on the front end, especially if the tractor hits a hole, or if the tractor front end comes up and then slams back down hard.

Have a nice day,
Joe

Joe;
I figured that with no FEL or excess
weight on the front other than weights
that it should do no damage. I did not
want to adjust the axle for just a few
inches, and have to align the JM.
Reversing the rear hubs bought me a CC of
48" to 55 inches. So now the stance is more
like a N type tractor.

 Jinma wheel spacing

The 4wd front end is not designed to handle the additional stress imposed by reversed rims, but it makes no difference to the 2wd. You should be OK up front. If you were not aware, there are four different rear wheel spacings available to you, from a narrow 900cm to a wide 1020cm. It's not very clear in the Jinma manual, but you'll find it under "Adjustment of the Rear Wheel Tread"
