2" Bro-tek spacers installed. Ordered thursday, arrived wednesday with monday being a US holiday.

Fitment was great. Only issue I had was one original lock washer spread when I was torqueing the wheels down. I had another one that I replaced it with. We'll see how well they work. Here's a few pics.

Looks like you got that done dirt cheap. My set is supposed to show up today. Hopefully I can talk my son into installing them ;)

DD how did you get the OEM lugbolts out ?
Skeets, with the bro-tek spacers (on my machine) you don't have to remove the two studs. There are 4 lugs and 2 studs that mount to the OEM axle flange. If you look closely at the "zoomed in pic" above with the spacer mounted, you can see the OEM studs in the 6 and 12 O'clock position. The 4 other lugs (supplied by Bro-Tek) are the ones that would use a 3/4" socket.

Brotek sends 4 new lug bolts (per side) to mount the spacer to the flange and you use the two existing OEM studs.

They also send you new lug nuts and lock washers to mount the wheel to the spacer. You only re-use the two flat nuts, all flat washers and the new lock washers.

I think the same arrangement is used for the B'01 series as well. No need to pull out any studs.

I just found the installation PDF...see attached

...i hope that makes sense anyway..

The online instructions were a big help. After a quick glance at them the whole process took about 20 minutes. Great quality, easy install, makes the tractor look more tractory ;) I'd highly recommend the Bro-Tek spacers.

I have looked at wheel spacers for my L3901 and I see that there are aluminum and steel versions. What are the Pros and Cons of each?

I'm no professional wheel spacers guy, so take this with a grain of salt.

I ordered the steel ones from Bora (Stahl) mostly for the strength. The weight helps too, but it's just a couple lbs.

Aluminum one's are painted or anodized in orange.

I'll paint my steelies in Kubota gray or orange when they show up.

I'll have a better opinion once I actually receive them.

From what I understand Motortech-Sport makes Bora which is aluminum. And Stahl which is steel.

I prepped and painted the Bora steel spacers I installed on my previous B2601. They looked great and the quality was fantastic!

Well worth the investment.
