Farm manager Armin Schirneker-Reineke, who runs an organic farm at Bad Salzuflen in northern Germany, used to fit conventional dual wheels for field work. However, when he was unable to obtain special permits for over-wide tractors he had to find an alternative solution. On the hunt for an answer, he contacted engineering firm Becklönne (which, among other things, makes a maize silage transfer elevator; see profi Harvest Special 2019) with the task of creating an easy fitting system that would allow the farm to use public roads.
