Have a lot of uneven areas in my 11 acres and my tractor wants to tip all the time up on 2 and 3 wheels,gets a bit scarry at times, is there a way to extend the rear wheels out?Just purchased it in December and don't really want to trade it in just yet.

If you don't already have them, wheel weights will help.

If memory serves, those wheel wells are packed pretty tight and there may not be much room to push the tires outward. If you could there would be additional leverage on the axle and its internal components.

If your BX feels tippy, you probably would have real trouble with something bigger... the BX is very low to the ground and about as stable as a small tractor can get.

Do you have a loader on it? If you do keep it low cause in the raised position it will tip easier. What is you prmary use for the tractor?

His profile shows a BX2230 w/loader and snow blower. Keep you bucket low and go so. Also filling the rear tires makes a big difference. I almost flipped my B7500 on the 1st day i had it. (I haven driven many tractors so it wasn't do to a lack of experience.) I got the rear tires filled 3 days later. (It was christmas when I got it) I haven't had a problem since.

Adjust your driving technique...

Never take a side slope with a loaded bucket or rear implement. Ease into a side slope slowly in any other circumstances, avoiding them if possible. Be especially careful if the ground is wet. Get a tilt-meter.

continued...

SLOW DOWN!

Back directly up hills in-line with the slope using 4WD. The 4WD will act like a brake.

Do not change direction while on a slope.

If you start to tip, steer and drive into the direction of the tip.

WEAR YOUR SEATBELT WITH THE ROPS UP!

Take the loader off to mow. You will find improved handling. Filled rear tires will help, rear wheel weights if you prefer. Both will lower the center of gravity some. Best suggestion is to alter the mowing pattern to avoid side slope mowing. The center of gravity of Sub-CUTs and CUTs doesn't allow for much stability on side slopes.
