Upgrade 3016 wheels with 4016 wheels

Postby rfindley » Tue Jun 12, 2012 11:48 am

Does anyone know what parts will I need to replace if I put the higher 4016 wheels on my 3016?

It's a pretty involved project ...

Starts with new 6 lug axle shafts out of a 400/4000 tractor. Rear fenders. Front axle and spindles to lift the front the same amount.

Probably more details and it's not clear to me you can use the fenders with the 3000 foot rests ... you'll end up wiht a high wheel, short wheel base tractor which is also rather more difficult to get on and off, plus operator clearance to the steering wheel will feel more confined due to the closed in fender feel. Further, I suspect the mower deck guide wheels won't have appropriate clearance to the big rear tires.

Thanks, I didn't realize there were so many differences between the two models.
