Hello, I have recently purchased a Cub Cadet 7274 with 800 hours, and a 417 FEL. I also purchased front and rear chains for it. Front chains were no problem. The rear chains are getting pinched between the inboard rear tire sidewall and the vertical fender ROPS support.

Does anybody know where I can purchase rear wheel spacers for this tractor? Does the 7274 have the same rear wheel setup as any other (maybe more popular) tractor?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

On my Kubota the rear axle has 5 different width settings. Check to see if your axle is similar ....

Is the Cub Cadet 4WD? What tire type do you have Ag, Industrial, Turf.

What is the Traction surface are you needing to operate on (steep incline, mud, snow, asphalt drive).

It is 4wd. I need to use it on inclines in mud, snow, and ice. The tires look like these:

But worn down about halfway.

Do you know if the rear hub flange on this Cub Cadet is the same as any other (hopefully more popular) tractor? I'd really like to get some 2-inch spacers.

Thank you,

Kevin ....

That is a picture of an Industrial tire tread which is a cross or mid point between Ag and Turf. Chains do not help as much as when put on Turfs because the chains get hidden in the side lugs.

Best of luck. ....

Yep, I had the same problem with my CC 7305, also with the industrial tires. I ended up machining 3" spacer blocks and buying new, longer bolts. Fortunately the bolts are standard metric items.

It's unlikely you have adjustable wheels although I see them in some of the manuals.

Hunt the web for 'tractor wheel spacer' and the like. Be prepared for sticker shock, as they're pretty much a made-to-order item. ....

I would like to join in here on this subject of wheel Spacers for a Cub Cadet compact tractor. I own a 2009 Cub Cadet Model 6284. It has the Industrial tires-wheel pattern is 6 lugs. 6" center to center on the bolt pattern, and the extended flange on the axle hub is 4-4/8" dia. I've searched the internet for three years and sent emails to over twenty wheel spacer manufactures and not go results. Kubota is the only one that comes near to the size needed. One company I had many emails with is... who wanted to make me two (2) of 2 inch -6x6x152.4) 6 lug for a price of $299.99 each. WOW: They must be gold in them there spacers.

Surely, someone could take a 2" aluminum wheel spacer and install it on a lathe and cut the hub center to 4-5/8" (117.3mm) hole

Hello all, and thank you for your help.

I recently purchased some 7.5" dia. x 3.25"-plus length D2 Tool Steel discs from eBay. A little over $200.

I also purchased 14 metric bolts of the same dia. & thread, only 3" longer than stock. I'm going to decapitate two of them and slot the ends, then use them to initially mount the spacers and wheels. About $135.

A friend who teaches Metal Shop is making the chunks of steel into 3" wheel spacers for me.

All told, unless I get the spacers plated, they will cost me about $350.

I hope that this helps anybody else who encounters this problem. ....

Check your hubs carefully; mine have a 'bump' that fits into the open center of the wheel. Your machinist friend will at least need to cut a cavity into one side of the spacer to accommodate the bump.
Up to you if you want to replicate the bump on the wheel side of the spacer. I didn't bother. Instead I cut a hole all the way through the spacer to fit the bump, which was relatively easy to do in aluminum. This will cut the weight down significantly as well, from 37 pounds to 24.

Your machinist friend probably has a paint booth if you're worried about rust. ....
