 BX22 Duals

Ok guys this may sound a little crazy but, here goes. I was wondering if anyone has tried running duals on a BX22. It used to be common practice in the turf industry - for machines working on a slope. Anyhow, I'm in the market for a compact tractor and for my application, it will be working on a slope the majority of the time. The BX seems like it should work for what I need....I was just looking for a little more stability. Advice?

 BX22 Duals

Those are really deep set rims. I think it would be kinda tricky getting things to hook up. Maybe some sort of thick spacer block???

Anyway it might be a problem if you ran over a rock or something with just the outside wheel in terms of stressing the axle and associated parts. It would be six feet wide!

I have turfs and factory wheel weights on mine. Couldn't ask
for a more stable tractor. Maybe you could take a test drive around your property with one so equipped to see how it handles. Some folks use calcium fill for even more weight, but the owners manual recommends against fluid filled tires and using the backhoe.

Just an off the wall thought. Why not check out Power Trac? They have a model that is designed for 40 - 45 degree slopes. Not only does it have duals on all four corners, but the seat tilts to keep the operator upright. Very unconventional unit, but the guys that have them love them.

More rubber with the same weight doesn't necessarily give more traction but a wider stance does improve stability. I think more accidents on slopes happen due to run away slides that result from traction failure than from upsets although the two problems are related.

Flotation tires are huge specialty tires that put a lot of rubber on the ground--maybe even more than duels. They don't have lugs and there isn't a lot of traction. Putting lugs on them wouldn't help if there's not enough weight to sink the lugs into the ground.

Some years ago there was a newspaper pic of a tractor overturned in a pond. I noticed that the tractor had flotation tires. It slid down a grassy embankment into a golf course pond. The operator had operated the tractor on that slope before but it was wet that day.

Unverferth is a good company that specializes in making custom dual wheels. Contact them and try to get some clamp-ons.

Thanks for the input:

1. Mechanical stress is what I was concerned about. That would be alot of lever on the bearing surface.

2. Thanks for the Power-Trac recommendation! That may be the ticket...I am sending for more information.

3. I've got a good idea on how to mount the duals on the BX if that is what I end up doing - I've done it before on a GRASSHOPPER lawn tractor.

4. I've got three friends with BXs. I've had them on the property and ....well, they are just a little short on stability.

Thanks again for the help! Anyone else got an idea?
