    when you run ag tractors do you need the duals or do you run them because it is easier than taking them off

    You definatley don't need duals on an AG tactor, it's just a PITA to take them off if they are axle duals. Snap-on style are pretty easy and come off in 20 mins. You can, however, position the inner and outer rears as narrow as possible. This way you can run larger blade without having to take them off.

    Axle duals are easy to take off also, but with the a 16 ft blade on the front of our big Case, we have lots of room with the duals on. We also leave the duals on our one loader because if we have to load snow, it makes the tractor basically impossible to flip over. The narrower your tractor is, the easier it is to plow though.
