I have heard that spacer are required for the rear tires on a 2910 in order to install tire chains. I placed mine over the tire today and it looks mighty close to the fender. I have a set that was on a slightly larger tire that will have to be cut down lengthwise, but the extra width seems to put the outside portion further towards the rim, which helps a bit there. Are these spacers redily available through Kubota? Do you run yours without spacers Bird? Thanks.

Cutter, are you asking me? Laughing out loud. I live in Texas; don't play in the snow (don't have any to play in), and don't use chains.

Well Bird, I guess that says it all. Perhaps Art would know. I can't believe there isn't a way to install them. I have heard they are available, unfortunately my dealer is closed today and I had the task at hand, with chains out and torch ready to do a bit of modification. Have to get ready for another Christmas party now. Bye.

Have you had any problem with them hitting the inside of the fender at all? I don't want to wreck the paint job. Thanks for the reply.

Well it is admittedly tight there between the wheel and the fender. I have R4s on my 2910 and I bought the 2 link chains from tirechains.com. The only chain I had hit the fender was the loose links of the chain on the inside past the hook, which I stretched and wired to another link. That had to be done carefully or it would have hit the fender for sure. I plan on cutting the excess chain links so that will solve that problem in the future (is that not advised btw?).

If you really want to be positive you don't scratch your fenders you probably want the spacers. Considering late fall and early winter where I live (MN) there's mud everywhere on the fenders (and elsewhere) that cover my scratches. Wink yeah right

Elkoboy, thank you! I have to call the dealer Monday and see if he knows anything about them. I have my torch ready to cut the chains down anyway, so I will trim as needed to prevent loose ends. Actually, the spacers should give the tractor a bit more stability on hills, so it may be a win/win scenario. This machine has a lower center of gravity than the TC did but it is narrower, negating the effect somewhat.

Watch out as to which chains you are useing as double ring farm style need to be kept tight. We have put on several with truck style which is a smaller link and causes less problems. We still put chains on less than five percent of the tracotors we sell for snow removal.

I have a set of Ladder type from the other machine I was planning on cutting down for the 2910. Do you think that machine will operate effectively without them Art? I have the Curtis loader blade on the front and a three point blade on the rear. Thanks Art.
