That's very cool! I don't think I've ever seen one like it! I wonder what that thing is sticking out of the front?

The center weight was used on the rear of a model W Simplicity walking tractor. The outside collar weight is also Simplicity and was also used on the earlier weight that mounted parallel to the axles and went on the front of the frames. Seems to me the 4-wheel tractors may have used them also.

Looks like it would be nice for someone that can restore it.

The weight on the front looks like the ones you see on the back of a Simplicity. Usually used as a counter-balance to make lifting the deck easier.
