Why do tractors have dual wheels?
Minimising soil compaction – adding dual wheels to a tractor reduces ground pressure which can reduce the risk of soil compaction. Stability – primarily important in hill-country work. Traction – dual wheels can improve traction on different surfaces.
Why are tractor front wheels at an angle?
Why do the front tires on my tractor appear to be off center? The front wheels are intended to have positive camber (toe-in). The positive camber or “toe-in” is generally used in vehicles for off-road use. In such vehicles, the positive camber angle helps to achieve a lower steering effort.
How much does it cost to change a tractor tire?
An implement tire fix would be about $20-40 depending on who we take it to. One of the larger (non-fluided) tractor tires would cost us $300-400 to have someone else come out and fix it.
When should I replace my tractor tires?
Looking at how far dirt is pushed backward by the lugs in a tire track when the tractor is under load can be a useful indicator. “When your slip starts to increase and gets to a point that you know it’s much higher than it used to be, that’s when you need to start looking at changing your tires,” Crouch advises.
How do dual tires work?
A dual wheel vehicle, also commonly called a dually, has four tires on the rear axle instead of only two for increased load capacity and towing capabilty. They do come with some added benefits and some added maintenance, and they require precise installation when it comes to wheels and tires.

Why do tractors have 3 wheels?
Even some modern farming equipment has three wheels only in order to spread the contact patch and minimize soil compaction. Farmall tractors were more versatile, general purpose machinery while older equipment was very specialized and could only be used for very particular tasks.
Why do tractors have weights on the front?
There are several important reasons for using ballast on tractors. Tractors and combines often have to add weight to accommodate horsepower imbalances. Adding weight where required will improve traction and reduce slippage.
Why tractor rear wheels are larger?
The heavy rear wheels provide a proper weight distribution while the tractor pulls any weight. That is why the tractor rear wheel is big. The engine of a tractor is very heavy and powerful, located at the front of a tractor. So, the large wheels at the rear distribute the weight more evenly to counter a heavy front.
