    Just bored and found this. With all the talk about OTT's and VTS's. Just figured I would throw this up.

    Have a nice day.

    it looks as if their just resting up against the machine for the pic, the outters don't appere to have any studs going through the holes or anything in the center of the hub..... also the outters look brand new and the inners are pritty worn

    look closer the outers are attached you can see 3 studs in each wheel but I imagine there are 4 you just cant see the fourth from the angle the picture is taken.

    Kinda the same concept as clamp-on tractor duals. They'll add a little flotation, but to be effective and durable you'd have to find a way to extend the axle. You'd probably be better off running a set of Hippos. Makes for a neat picture, though.

    ya that is a first. It's interesting, but you guys are right I don't think they are attached.

    It's not a 2-piece rim. If you look closely you can see where it is welded. Also, look at the hay trapped between the wheels. That wouldn't be there if they just set the tires next to one another.

    That's gotta be from the company I saw in England on YouTube, they have a unique silage fork that pushed the material off the forks, they have tried everything under the sun on packing silage piles.
