Default Dual wheel spacers??

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GRAVELY-DUAL...item2a2073b59e

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

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.

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.

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