And so we picked one up today in IL. Left at 6:30 a.m., yet by 5:00 p.m. there are two yellow tractors in the driveway. Funny how that works!

The Allis was the planned one. The Cub came from a neighbor down the road. Adam has been eyeing it up for a few years now. It has been sitting under pine trees for quite a long time.

Those look like bolens weights to me, I figured that they already had them. Michelle, where the wheel weights something you two already had?

No, believe it or not, the Bolens wheel weights were tucked under the other weights on the rear wheels. We both had no idea until we were pushing the tractor out from under the pine trees. A lot of weight on the rear! 

 

We'll pick up the mowing deck and snowblower for the Cub Cadet in the Spring. Still a lot of snow around here.

You will love the AC. I'm just finishing the repairs on one. They are great tractors with many attachments around. You can download the manuals for it here in the manuals section. To see the sales brouchures go to Simpletractors.com. The John Deere is a great tractor too. Good Luck, Rick

Can anyone identify these weights?
