With the rise in precision farming, Stocks straddle-row dual wheels are becoming increasingly popular. The main feature of the straddle-row dual wheel is the increased stability gained whilst straddling the row of crops.
Straddle-row dual wheels are often used on tractors and drills planting maize or sugar beet - with wider row widths, extra-wide spacer bands can be specified and custom-built to the required row spacing to allow the use of dual wheels for inter-row cultivation work.

ROW CROP DUALS
The centre discs of the tractor wheels may need to be reinforced to withstand the additional loading due to the extra width and consequent leverage.
This is more relevant when using row crop wheels due to the larger diameter discs (more leverage) and higher tyre pressures (harder ride).
On forestry and other specific wheels, Stocks can fit a variety of valve guards for optimum valve protection.
All wheels are colour matched if requested and any paint type can be specified.
