Just seen an image of Dutch tractors using the American triangle sign, so are these dutch requirements
Yes in the Netherlands you need a triangle on the back when driving on public road. We don’t need a licenseplate. In Belgium and Germany you need a licenseplate.

Off topic, but this is one of my favourite roads. Fun in a car, even more so on a motorbike. Not sure I would like it in a truck though, passing places are a little small. Regularly see tractors and farm machinery up there though.

Rasping, is that a Rover 75 in the photo? Is it yours? :)

It looks like it could be, but no it isn’t mine. 😊

Yes these are Dutch requirements. We are obligated to put these on a tractor, but the place where we put it on a tractor isn't specified as far as I know. When it's visible it's ok

Edit: I see it's already answered

Yeah the duals here usually are put on an outside hub and tightened on like a normal wheel. Not the clamp on or whatever they're called idk the proper term, like what i see on the game or YouTube. Ive always wondered why we use what we use amd why other countries use their style. Can you space the clamp ons like the long bar axles? Like 30 inch rows 36 etc. Bear in mind im not a farmer just always been into farming but from what I've seen the only difficulty with the bar axles is lifting the tire and getting the lugnuts lined up amd tightened. Sorry off topic but if anybody can shed some light on it it would be nice
The way we mounted the duel is jack the side you wanted to put the duel on until the tire was off the ground just enough that you can rotate the tire. We would screw in a headless stud into one of the holes for one of the lug bolts. The hub is turned to the 3 o'clock position and roll the duel tire up to the hub. Twisting the duel back and forth you can get it to line up with the headless stud. Then someone will rotate the tire until you can get a lug bolt into the hole next to the stud. Once the bolt is in place you rotate the tire which causes the duel to lift and rotate into place. Once the duel is in place a little wiggling of the duel is all that is needed to install the rest of the lug bolts. Once the lug bolts are in place you replace the headless stud with a lug bolt and tighten them down in a star pattern. We used 28 inch wide tires for the duel and never had fluid in them so one person could usually do it alone. Usually takes 20 minutes per duel.

Taking the duels off was easier. Run the tire up on a piece of rail road tie, replace the 2 o'clock lug bolt with a headless stud, remove the others and twist the back of the duel so it comes off the stud.
