New to the forum here but longtime Kubota owner. Considering purchasing a B7500 with turf tires for my Christmas tree farm. I understand the 7500 has adjustable wheel spacing. Does anyone know the width at the narrowest setting with turf tires? To fit down my rows I need the tractor to be in the 40-45” range. Also, are there any other models with adjustable tread width I should. E looking at? Much thanks for any help.

If I am not mistaken - the "width" of the stock tractor is right at 42"

as for other models - B5100 - B6100 and B7100 all have a similar set up as well as other models.

My B7500 with turf tires measures between 51 - 52 inches in width. Hard to see as the tires bow out and I cant see both sides at one time. I think the hubs are at the narrowest setting. I am not positive they are at the narrowest but I can not see any other holes for the pins to move then in any more.
The axels look like the hubs would go in farther. If you took the pins out and just relied on the clamps to hold the hubs on you could probably make it 6" less. I guess you could put the pins outboard of the hubs that would keep them from sliding off if the clamp on the hub failed.
To get the 42" in width listed in the owners manual I think you would need to change to R1 ag tires.

Still thinking--- You can turn the hubs around and make the width narrower. You would need to bolt the wheel to the hub then put the hub /wheel assembly on the axel. (lug nuts would be on the inside). That would allow the pins to be through the hole in the hub and the axel like they are supposed to be.
My B2410 has the same adjustable hubs.
Also B1700, B2100, B2400, B7300,B7400. I'm sure there are others.
They also made a B7500 narrow tractor. Not sure if you could find one.
