Dual wheel spacers??

Never seen ones that look like those. But they appear to be the right color. Were these yet another obcure gravely attachment?

Re: Dual wheel spacers??

I've never seen a set like that before and will venture a guess as third party attachment. See no reason they wouldn't work fine. They may be easier to install than the factory ones actually.

I used to work at a Golf Course, and that type of Dual Wheel Adapter was used on Jacobson Equipment. I had modified the Hubs on a LI that I had and used a set on it for quite a while. But not as easy to install and change over as the Gravely Dual Adapters.

I agree based on the pictures. It would be a pain to install. Deflate the tires completely, remove all the bolts and studs, and then it goes downhill from there.

Re: Dual wheel spacers??

Looking closer, it looks like all of the mount bolt holes have broken bolts in them. I may be wrong as the pictures have a bit to be desired. I'm not 100% sure how they work looking at them either. There is no recess for the three bolts that hold the rim together, just 3 holes for the mount bolts. The spacer wouldn't pull up tight to the hub, it would always be held off some.

Re: Dual wheel spacers??

I've seen those on Jacobsen lawn tractors (4 wheel) for dual rear wheels. I'd say not a Gravely item.
