Dual Wheel Kits

Looking for somewhere to research dual wheel kits for Husqvarna, Bob Cat or Scag walk behinds. I can't seem to find anything on line.

I have never seen a W/B with duals. If you look at Ventrac or Stiener tractors, they have daul kits, so does Kut-Kwick. Either addapt one of these kits of fab up your own to fit your machine.

those machines aren't designed to handle dual wheels, you will likely have axle problems as the additional torque can quickly cause problems. if you need duals, you should look at Ventrac - these are the best slope mowers on the market.

I would use caution using dual wheels on a WB as the motors the wheels are attached to aren't meant to have that much leverage on the spindle. Maybe replace the turf tires with something a little more aggressive.

I how put them on all the mowers due to the increased traction and even cut that they give.
