Dual Wheel Hauler for Tractor, CombineEuropean farmers operate much of the same big equipment found in North America but they have to deal with much narrower roads. A German manufacturer's new trail-behind dual carrier transports duals to the field where they can then be quick-attached to the tractor or combine.
The dual carrier consists of an axle with a hub on either end fitted which quick-tach clamps. Once duals are attached, it pulls down the road like a 2-wheeled trailer and its long tongue can be hooked to the back of a combine, tractor, or field implement.
To dismount the duals when you reach the field, you just back up and the duals lift up onto a built-in stand that holds them just above the ground. The stand can also be used to store duals.
The rig handles wheels from 26 to 40-in. dia. and is fitted with road lights. Sells for about $1,400. The company also makes quick-tach dual clamps.
