Default 112"-120" wide rear optional tractor axle's

I have seen several existing tractors and pictures in brochures with these real wide rear axles 112"-120" width. Lately I have been wondering what exactly these were needed as an option for? There has been several references to them being vegetable tractors. Does anybody out there have experience with this option and possibly some of the equipment used with these odd tractors?

120" or 3 metre track settings are widely used down under here in Australia and is commonly called tram tracking, this is used in conjunction with accurate guidance and the tractor, coltivators, sprayers, seeders, and combines always drive on these tracks with the crops sown in between either in beds or direct into the ground inbetween the 9 metre tracks,
