Tandem Axle Bundle – PTFH

Intended Use

Tandems provide for increased floatation, higher weight carrying capacity, and smoother performance for better header control during harvesting.


  • Only heavy-duty wheel spacers may be used with this bundle.
  • At least one 6” heavy-duty wheel spacer must be used on the RH side of all machines. Machines with Kernel Processors will need to replace the spacer with a 13″ spacer.
  • Tire spacing will be increased by approximately 4” on each side and can be partially corrected with wheel spacers and rim arrangements.
  • This bundle is not compatible with the 2 Row-Narrow Crop Harvesting unit (tires extend past end of outer row) but is compatible with all other John Deere and RCI row unit and hay pickup attachments.

Setup Time

Approximately 5 hour of installation and setup time is required due to additional frame reinforcements that need to be installed.
