Steiger 9170 duals


Recommended Posts

We made spools for the steiger. In my opinion the stock band duals were junk. Cracked wheels causing us to have to use tubes. We used a drop of 36" pipeline pipe and washers for making them. Since making them my cousin got a pipe torch. Clamps around the pipe with a drive chain and you hand crank it around to cut it square. We need two more 16x46" wheels with the steiger bolt pattern (18" 10 bolt iirc) to finish the swap out.

Last pic shows the two unused spools as we still have the 20-42 on the rear and the front is converted to 18-46. We may squeeze 20-46 Michelin tires on the 16" rims as we have two matched sets of four 40-50% tread

Looks good! My old boss had a stieger i thought the way the duels clamped were dumb way to go on but he didnt use much off set disc and a big old spreader that was hydraulic spreader that sat real high didnt haul as much as the knights he had so he didnt use it much when i worked for him!

We finally got the 20-46 on the inners and the spools on. Next we will clean up the other 4 rims and weld bead protectors on the outside bead for getting near the wall in the bunker. Then apply silver paint and mount the last 4 tires . They barely clear the fenders by 3/4" . We will want to make better steps to climb up and add them closer than stock ones.

Am I seeing things or are there duals on the windrower? 

We put a set on the Massey. Helps traction on the hills over the 725-26 that had beet juice in them  I forget the metric size but I think they are 16.9-34

420/85r34?

How do the planetaries hold up? We had to train the operators on the farm to make circles when they turned around because they were spinning on the inside tire and it was eating up the planetary drives, not to mention the rims. We even snapped the wheel studs off a couple times. I remember a few years ago seeing an add in a fastline magazine for a company that made flotation tires for windrowers. The machines the had pictures in the ad looked like they could go through anything.

We haven't had any issues yet with the planetaries . We are leasing the machine. I was told when I asked about different tires as long as it's not taller than the stock ones we could change them. At first I thought the set of 66-43x25 tires I had would work. The one that I measured was low in air and it was too tall once aired up correctly

Looks good. Can I ask a dumb question what are little holes in the middle of big holes for?

No question is a dumb question

They are timed with the inner bolt circle to stick the extension through to torque the inner wheel and spool

what are bead protectors ?  thanks

We weld them to skidloader wheels both sides of the wheel. On these we only do the outside of the dual. On the skidloader wheels it's about 1 1/2" wide by 1/4" or 3/8" plate . In the 42" and 46" wheels we are using 1/2" thick by around 1 1/4" wide plate .

If you rub something with the wheel these generally keep the wheel from bending

That’s what I thought they were for. You can really crank on bolts if extension is supported.

I did something similar to that in a set of skid steer rims when I was at the farm. I had a local fab shop roll some 5/8 rod to match the inside diameter of the rim and then I welded them in place. No more bent rims on that machine after that.

Just waiting for the tire guy to swap the duals to these wheels. I will need to check out that the tires can't hit each other during a sharp turn . This was a back burner project
