HELP: Need info. on dual wheels

Recommended Posts

I have a B-10 that is a workhorse around the place. After 15 years of ownership I've decided that I want a wider stance to stabilize this thing a little more. Some of these Kentucky hills can get pretty steep. I can't find anything in my literature or manuals that talks about dual wheel setups. I do see a few posts that hint at such, but I haven't been able to get a lot of information from them. Can somebody fill me in on dual wheels? Were such made originally for the B-10. In not, have you made your own, and if so, how? Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks,

Heres some links: http://www.simpletractors.com/attachments/options.htm http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=78105&SearchTerms=dual%2Bwheels http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=81992&SearchTerms=dual%2Bwheel%2Bspacers http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=81836&SearchTerms=dual%2Bwheel%2Bspacers As for factory Duals, good luck finding them, and when you do, be ready to fork out some money!! You can make them a couple of different ways, Like the original style or the square type like above. It seems like there was someone who made some a while back. Hope this helps.

I've been out taking a look to see how I want to make the dual wheel extensions, and I've got a couple of questions that I hope someone can help me with. First, when looking at the extensions that attach on the wheels to the square holes designed for the wheel weights, I'm wondering if the wheels are strong enough at that point to handle the extensions. Just eyeballing it, it looks like the steel on the wheel is no more than 3/32 at that point. What do you think? Second, when looking at the pictures of the extensions that mount to the wheel hub (like the ones available on Ebay), I'm wondering how they clear the nylon bearing adjustment bolts on the right hand hub. Has anyone had experience with them (or with the AC original equipment extensions) to know if they clear and by how much? Thanks again,

Yes they are strong enough. The wheel centers are the same thickness all the way across The originals use an extended stud item A in the diagram above, or you can replace the adjustment bolts with allen head set screws.
