Trailer Dilema

I wish there was another option. I have a John Deere A and a 520. The regular trailers are 82 inches between the fenders. My tractors are wider. I know they are adjustable if you have time and patience. The other choice is a deck-over trailer at twice the money. Have I missed an option? Do you all adjust the wheels or get a bigger trailer? Will the tractors look right set at close enough to fit between 82 inches? They are at 84 now. I am looking at 10,000 GVWR, 5200# axels, 82 between the fenders.

I've run them up on a set of blocks that match the height of my fenders before. Fenders are about 8 inches tall. I've seen JD haul a lot of new combines with the axles setting on wood blocks so figured if it works for them I would try it. So far no problems but not a daily thing to do.

I ran into the same problem. My trailer has very heavy duty homemade fenders that my MF 165 fits between just fine. Trouble came when I went WILD and got a JD 60! I beefed up the fenders a little bit more and added 6" to the sides. A removeable 6x6 sloped to match the fenders makes it possible to drive OVER the fenders. The "60" is way too fast in reverse and the govenors always open up at the wrong time. My friend's Farmall "M" backs on over the fenders much better. Having the tractor traveling on the highway 8-10" closer to the road is a nice option. Loading the "60" is a challenge. I have chains on all four corners now and took the rig 746 miles to Mackinac Bridge ride in 2012 with no problems. I was fortunate to have a very heavy built trailer that made adding the options possible.
