Kyne Steel Spike Wheels: an oldy, but a goody

They say there’s no point in trying to re-invent the wheel, but over the years some useful attachments have made them more functional.

Kyne Steel Spike Wheels are designed and manufactured primarily for fencing contractors and farmers, which gives the ability to work in wet and slippery conditions or operate in steeper country with reduced risk.

Available for front or rear wheel fitment, the design sees a mounting disc clamped to the original tractor wheel just like a dual wheel assembly.

The spikes or spades can be fully extended for the worst conditions or terrain, partially extended for just a little help, or fully retracted to allow moves between jobs without removing the entire assembly. 

Adjustment is made quickly via a pin and spring clip attachment.

While these will help improve traction, the spike wheels also allow operators to work longer in wet conditions.

When used on the front axle, they also provide excellent braking and holding ability, a particular advantage for fencing contractors establishing fence lines on steep slopes.
