Looks like a nice job. Is it to widen the stance or for more surface area in wet areas or some other reason?

I have to admit that's kind of cool looking. I would like to see how you made the dual adapters. Did it make a big difference in the steering effort ?

I installed whats called "poor mans power steering"- they are called torrington bearings- under the axle on each spindle. The steering is just as easy as before because of the bearings.

 

Garden tractors with duals just look awesome, I just took it a step further. I hope to start taking tractors to shows next year, this will definitely get people talking....

Do you have any pictures as the project progressed?  That would be cool to see how you did it.

I'm trying to post some pics on the build- are the pictures above as big as I can post? On my screen they are only about 1 1/2" square. If I blow them up it says upload skipped?

 

What does it mean when someone thanks you anyways?

 

Its getting close to rifle season, so I may have to put tractors on the back burner for a little bit, but I will get something put together eventually.
