You've posted in the Politics Forum, no doubt by mistake, but I'll answer here.
Unless you have a 450+ Lb/Ft torque wrench, you will need to improvise.
I use a 2 1/2" combination wrench (use the box end). I lock both brakes, put the tractor in first gear,, Sherman underdrive and jump up and down on the end of the wrench until it tightens the nut no more. Works for me.
Yes, you could use a pipe or other extension on a large wrench or socket and apply a known force at a known distance from the axle center to be more accurate, but such is not necessary.
