I have a question regarding a wc my son is interested in purchasing. The tractor is of tricycle type front end and was wondering if it could be converted to a wide front end.

Just to clarify the other two posts. You can convert using the WD or WD-45 adjustable wide front as per Johns post or with a WC fixed width wide front which is the one Eldon spoke of. A WC wide front is a very desireable item for collectors, hard to find and very expensive.

C Castelli; Yes they can be converted to a wide front. You can find them in tractor salvage yards.You will need the complete front axle and mounts and the steering gear box, as you're steering gear works the opposite of the one for a wide front. The complete front end with the steering gear and all mounts could cost between $750 to $1500 depending on who has it and how proud they are of it. Something to keep in mind, is that, Row crop tractors are in fact perfectly safe if operated as intended and at proper ground speeds for the ground on which they are operated. I own several narrow fronts and have never flipped one. Common sense must prevail with any tractor, regardless of configuration. You can roll a wide front just as easily as a narrow if you arent careful. hope this helps.

Yes, for a price! One guy had one for sale for $2000 this summer.
