Super wide plate stance

Can someone please give me the reasoning behind using a super wide plate stance? I have been umpiring for many a year, and have never felt the need to use such a stance. I can easily get low enough even using a stance of about 3 feet. I was told by a college assignor to get wider. Is it just a personal preference? I have seen some umpires get so wide that they cannot easily get to an upright position to make a call. Just wondering.
