I went off to pick up my Bolens EK7 today, and ended up with a 'bonus'.  The guy I got the EK7 from has a number of Deere tractors, and he took a pair of weights off of one that he had recently bought because it wasn't a "Deere" weight.

 

Now these puppies are huge!  They are for 12" wheels, but if they don't weigh in at 100# each they don't weight an oz.

 

Anyway he said that he was going to sell them so I asked how much.  He said $100.00, and they are now in the back of my pickup :D :D :D

 

I took a couple of pics of what is cast in them.  Maybe one of you guys can identify them for me.  The last pic shows one of them laying next to a 50# Bolens rear wheel weight, just to show the size.

I may be wrong, but those are front wheel weights for a farm tractor.

They should weigh 105 each, and most were combine steering wheel weights (small rear wheels), and would fit inside 16" rims.

Guy claimed that they fit into a 12" wheel. Oh well, I'll find out soon enough.

 

If they do, they will go on the HDT1000 for plowing work :D :D

 

If not, I'll toss them in the weight box for the 1886FL

The inner part WILL fit into a 12" rims, but will stick out the thickness of the larger diameter portion.  They look great on GT's.  On the farm implements, the entire weight slips inside the wider/taller rims.

Old Buzzard,

Daniel is right that they are  for the rear or steering wheels on the old combines.  I have two pair one like you have posted and one pair that are 50 lb.  Yes they will fit a 12inch wheel

That's good to know.

 

I figure that with Rim Guard in all 4 tires, a set of 35# each weights on the front tires, and these on the rear, the HDT1000 should hookup REAL good.

 

Now I need something like a 2x10" or 3x8" plow to make that Mitsu diesel snort  :D :D :D

I certainly plan on being there, as long as it doesn't conflict with the big Wellington show in September 20-23.

 

Now that I have my own trailer, going to more shows/plow days will be a lot easier, as I won't be under the gun for getting a rental back on time.
