I have a Cub 1650 with duel 10.50's on it so as we are working on a RJ-58 for my son of course he wanted it dueled up too. I happened to have a set of tires that matched pretty good and a crappy band duel setup that we installed the other day. It will work until I get time to make a nicer se of duel adapters. Now of course my younger some wants to put duels on one of his tractors I think his Bantam would look cool with duels on it. Lets see your Dueled up GT's.

Cub 1450 loader , that had dual 23 X 8.50's , but after 3 broken axles in about 8 years of service ( 8 hard years of service ) its retired now .

 

You might want to have a couple of spare axles in reserve , unless its not going to be a worker .

 

In fairness tho , I used it as a dozer as much as a loader , and with over 400 lbs of added rear weight it was worked well beyond its design ......LOL

Duals tight to each other look much better than the wide spread kind. That wide is gonna be PIA every time you wanna park in garage and when navigating tight spots in a yard

I wonder if that could be a function of how the duals are mounted?

 

The Bolens Dual Wheel Kit used the wheels themselves as opposed to adding an extension/adapter for mounting the 2nd set of wheels/tires.

Some folks like duals for the looks, but I like the duals on the 1250 for the stability that it gives when the cutter bar is hanging off the side of the tractor.

 

Without the duals, it can get a bit 'tippy' with that weight hanging out.

 

Haban recommended that you use a wheel weight on the left side when using the Sickle-Mo for that reason.

 

Here are front views with and without the duals.  You can see how much difference it makes.

Well said Buzzard! We had a 108 CC and found a NOS (never mounted) Haban 402E. After mounting the Sickle Mo and adding weights to the rears it still wanted to slide on a grade. We added the duals then mowed our field, I loved the ride and the stability. But on steeper grades like a dam side of a pond/lake or ditches it still wanted to slide so the weights went back on the rears and I made a counter weight brkt(removable) under the fender pan/foot board and used JD ZTR weights(2 ea...found @ a yard sale...also removable). That did it! Slope mowing with no fear...sure miss that phat daddy,to this day my wife will still mention it. Also we had a 73 w/duals w/matching set of "zig zags" and it pulled a rear grader blade with very good results.

I have nothing against dual wheels , and like previously stated I had them on my loader tractor , and they make a very stable platform for a loader .  Plus it makes it a lot easier to add additional weight when the tires are loaded .

 

If I had not continually worked the 1450 so hard I probably wouldn't have broken so many axles .

 

I've got a cub 100 with a haban sickle mower , and it never entered my mind to add duals , but it makes sense  .

 

I mow around fence rows and a pond and have a lot of weight on the left rear to counterweight the Haban .

 

I may have to rethink the duals on it , especially since the haban doesn't work the rearend as bad as the Johnson loader did .

 

BNK ,

I've haven't noticed the rearend sliding as much as the front end gets light , and wants to slide and the left front tire wants to get airborn sometimes .

I'm thinking of putting a weight bracket on the front of my 100 to keep the front end from sliding .

When I got my first Sickle-Mo, I mounted it on a G10 and I ran into the same thing, even with a weight on the left rear.

 

My 2nd one came mounted on a 1256 that a PO had 'modified' a bit to widen the track.  It also has CaCl filled rears.  It's pretty stable.

 

In this pic, you can see how much wider it is as compared to the 1256 in the background, plus, you can see the G10 with the wheel weight in the background as well.

heres factory duals on my 63 Suburban. note how they used the weight as a cone to mount the outer wheel on. Band type duals are ok also, as that what a lot of the big bother tractors would have used. They also make good row markers.
