Hi Alwin,

The position of the spokes is purely incidental. Since there are no roller chains connecting the two axles together (you can see the sprockets by the front wheels), the wheels just wind up where ever they want to.

The holes in the rear wheels would have been for the attachment of some kind of material, or perhaps studs, to increase traction on the logs. My guess is there would have been heavy belting riveted to the wheels at one time.
