I recently purchased an HT23 and these weights were included. I've never seen another set so I thought I'd share. I was disapointed to see they didnt match. Still cool though

Those are pretty nice Adam! I bet they'll be purdy all cleaned up and re-painted! It's nice to see what different types were available too! I understand your disappointment that they're not the same, but maybe you'll get lucky and find another mismatched set and then you'll have 2 sets! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Do those fit the fronts? At 10" they seem a little large for an 8" wheel or does a HT23 have larger fronts. I find some front weight would be welcome when plowing heavy snow in slippery conditions.

Nice Find Adam!

You don't come across front weights too often. This is the first time I have seen a FMC front weight

The Bolens one is what we had as an option on a G14 we bought May 1973. ( I don't remember the exact day }

I thought these were small frame rear weights? What tractor do you mount these on Jerome?

Heres mine.

The 10 inch rims used on the large frame.
