TG,Spacers on the front... any of you guys run them there yet? I know they will help in the back. On the front they wont do anything till your front ends suspension hits the stops.
alleviate the clearance problem for the chains
Bob Sherwood sent me this pm:I just sent Bob Sherwood a pm asking about the fit with the 54" deck.
tripletap,Why would you pay +$300.00 for a gain of an inch on width - If you really think that inch is going to make any difference at all in how your tractor will handle stability wise I think you may be sadly mistaken ... If your slopes are that bad an inch of width isn't going to "make a hill of beans" pun intended...:ROF
You have to find the right person who has them (who will be frank) about the performance and not embarrassed to admit they made a $300.00 mistake - I'm sorry but I just can't see it making any difference.
Besides that - what is the manufacturing intention of the spacers anyway (it's original purpose as stated by JD why are they made) to provide stability or some other reason ...? I don't believe JD states these spacers will make any difference in the stability of your tractor do they? Put more ballast in your box and save your money - (unless this is just about the "Cool factor") "my tractor is wider than yours", whatever ...
tripletap,Nobody is accusing anybody of anything - I am merely looking for a professional opinion: not someone who just thinks they work -
You however, are acting like an - and calling people names outwardly on this forum is not a good idea (CHEAP) -
I wouldn't consider myself cheap - I want to spend my hard earned money on something that will actually make a difference, not just (I think they work)
These spacers aren't even made for nor are they supposed to be installed on this model 2305. There will probably be a warranty issue if you install them and something happens with your PTO, Tranny, rear end - JD loves to look for ways to run from their warranty obligations why give them any reasons to -
Just saw you are a moderator - shame on you !!!
Bill, only if you mow straight up and down. I like to vary my patterns. Here's an example:He also looked at JDFans pictures and told me that a 15 to 20 degree slope is nothing for the 2305.
Well Sir, I'm not about to pay out $150 a set x 2 - $300.00, to find out they don't, not unless the dealer states he'll take them back.Never say never and never say it won't work unless you try it
JDFanatic, how do you mow to create a cool pattern like that......is each 'stripe' simply mown in the opposite direction? Do you need to use a roller afterwards or anything like that? I was inspired by your pic to try, but I can't get anything that looks anywhere near as cool as yours.Bill, only if you mow straight up and down. I like to vary my patterns. Here's an example:
