I just ordered a B2601 and asked dealer about getting rear wheel spacers as I have a slopping 6 acre field to mow. The tractor has a mid mount 60" deck and they told me that spacers do not work with this deck but I see others here have spacers on thier tractors with this deck. Any advice for this newbie here would be appreciated.

I've installed 1.5 inch rear wheel spacers in both my wife and my B2601 tractors with the 60 inch mid mount mowers. We agree on improved side hill stability and peace of mind. No clearance issues with thr R14 tires.
Bro-tec spacers painted Kubota grey looks like they should have been there from the factory.

Pretty sure you can only go with 1.5" spacers with the MMM. I put 3" spacers on my 2620 and am very pleased - it was pretty scary stock. But I won't every use a MMM, will eventually get a rear finish mower possibly.

I had 3" spacers put on mine but I don't have a mid-mount mower to worry about. I have only ever used mine with spacers and it has not felt tippy. Rear tires also loaded and I carry a rear implement or a Heavy Hitch with 650 lbs. If your slopes are steep I might use front weights too. Actually I would now except I always have the loader on.

Is there room between the outside of your back tires and the inside of gauge wheels on the deck, or whatever comes closest to the tires? If so, you have that much room, minus a little for some clearance, for spacers.

If you haven't mounted the deck yet, the safest and surest way to determine spacers is to mount it and see.
