I know that several manufacturers offered them as an option back in the 50's and 60's but I have to wonder about the reasoning behind it.

I can see the need for them if you are forced to mow grass cross-slope because they change the center of gravity. But are there other applications where duals would make life better? After all, you have to be conscious of those tires sticking out the sides of the tractor, all the time. From a mechanical aspect, duals put a lot of strain on the axle shaft/flange joint which is usually just welded together.

And once you start adding heavy counterweights to offset front mounted attachments, the strain is increased even more.

The cub cadet IMHO has the strongest transaxle of any in its class.

You have to remember it was originally for a tractor the farmall cub

If you do happen to bust something you can allways install a dodge dart axle. And I just can't see how you would bust that setup -- something for a vehicle weighing several thousand more and 10x + the HP

Dam near indestructible

Duals look cool And get the tractor lugs -- they look better and defiantly have more traction
