    First of all Kelley welcome to the Tractor Forum:party:

    The nices bunch of guys on the web!

    As to your question about dual wheel adapters I have seen several homemade versions of them. I will try to locate pics and post them.

    I am not familiar with that model of Wheelhorse. what size tires are on there now? Are there holes in the wheel to use to bolt the duals onto? Do you need more traction or just going for the macho dual wheel look?

    I have some on my Gravely tractor which are homemade and they work great.

    Kelly--I have seen one or two on e-bay, i think one set went for like $40, maybe....

    Also--I do not know where you are located, but the National Wheelhorse Tractor show is the last weekend in June (23-25) in Arrendtsville , Penn.....That is a little north of gettysburg...
    They have a swap meet and sales/trading going on.....:idea: :idea:

    I know of at least two ways to make them.

    1) Roll a piece of flat stock that fits inside the rim lips and use carriage bolts to keep the wheels together (no welding required).

    2) Make a pair of flanges and weld a tube for proper spacing (see photo).

    Here's a place where you can buy them.

    Sorry its a little late, but

    This is the way I have decided to add duals to the 312 (will work on any tractor with the standard 12" rims). Works good, but I havent had a chance to push it yet, the Ags are on order to replace the turfs (one is flat anyway).

    Shows the parts used, the steel ring (2x1/8'' flat bar) fits inside the first lip of the rim. the threaded rod holds the 2 rims together.

    Shows the holes that the threaded rod goes through, nuts hold it together, 4 per side.

    The scene inside the rim, shows the ring sitting in the rim, and the threaded rod

    Proper job!

    If I had another set of rims and tyres I would put on triples just for laughs
