Are those for 8" pipe flanges? Are they to bolt on the pipe flange to close off the pipe?

That's a great idea! I wish I was into GT's when I was at my old company! They threw out tons of these when they closed down. :(

I do believe those were for 8" pipe, and yes they are used to close off the pipe.

That's a great way to recycle! Looks like a couple hundred pounds you've got on there...that should do for plowing.

Great idea Gary! 110 lbs/wheel. That will make a big difference. I use weight lifting plates but they don't have the holes to mount the bolts directly, so I made brackets and slide them on. If you've priced new weights lately they are very pricey. I wonder if my local scrap yard would have any?
