Hey guys I need a little info on some JD hubcaps.  When did they first come available ?  Did they come factory installed on just some models ?  Were they just an add on that was purchased by themselves? Is there more than one style ?   Would they be proper on a 64 110 ?   Thanks in advance guys. 

And Troy you are the man !

 

Jack..

I can't answer any of your questions but I would like to have a set for one of my tractors. And no doubt they would look right on your 110.

Just for your information they are called baby moons.

They are the same as Wheelhorse and some other brands I believe

Jack,

The baby moons were available as add options from 1964-1968, and as stated above, were identical to the early Cub Cadet and early Wheel Horse hubcaps. In 1967 John Deere started to personalize theirs, by adding the center ring on the caps. These center rings were trimmed with white paint, and were available for all tractors up through 1991 I believe. In 1992 the same caps were available, but they didn't have the white paint around the ring. The hubcaps are very collectible, and highly sought after pieces.

John Deere hubcpas were available for all lawn and garden tractors, and could even be installed on some attachments such as dump carts, pull behind sprayers, etc.. They are nice accessories, but are very expensive when you find good ones. Most of the ones found on ebay are either very rusty, dented, or both. There are some guys out there, selling NOS sets, but again, be prepared to pay as much as $250.00 for a set.

Standard sizes for the round fender tractors are 8" caps for the fronts, and 12" caps for the rears.

Good Luck to you and Happy Hunting!

Troy

I have set of the later caps to arrive this week.  I paid $115 for all 4 "worker" quality for the 120.  I will take some pics when they arrive.

As Troy said, the later wheel covers look a little different to the first. Here the design from august 1972

I usually install the baby moons on my round fenders and older 80 dump carts, and the newer ones with the rings and white paint, on my flat fender 140's, 120's, 110, newer 80 carts and the 5B sprayer. I have a set of the ringed hubcaps without the white paint, but I don't think they look as nice, so they don't get used much. Maybe this weekend I can find the box, and snap some pictures of the three different kinds, so you can see the difference between them all.

I'm thinking I might try to find a set for my 3114. But they are kind of high.
