My neighbor has a john deere 336 baler with kicker that he has used for years. I am helping him make hay and he told me that you have to make right hand turns with the baler and kicker wagon. He stated that the wagon will put to much pressure on the left side wheel when turning left and may cause it to break the bold where the wheel mounts. Has anyone experience this or heard of this before. To me this just doesn't seem economical or correct.

Guess I have been doing it wrong all these years.
Probably should make left hand turns going down the road too.

Just sold a 346 (wider pickup) we had bought new in 78.Had an oversize 16" tire on left (heavy )side which has a 4 bolt heavy steel piece to locate wheel further back to compensate for thrower weight. Never had any concerns with these bolts ,but did have to beef up wagon hitch bolts under thrower.

I have repaired several LH axle extensions on 336 balers over the years. They seemed to be a weak point but I don't know as left hand turns had anything to do with it. RH turns are easier on the driveline and can make a tight square turn. 346 had the heavy plate steel extension with no problems.

Never heard of such a thing. I turn ours every which way, never had any issues, though I prefer right turns because I can see things better.

Only ever had an issue once with the left wheel. Broke the spindle off in the field. Cut the weld in the milking machine, pressed in a new spindle, welded it and back at it.

If your neighbor is breaking bolts there something else is wrong. Might be time for better bolts.
