Is this a factory weight on the back? I got one identical to it at the scrap yard. It would be very unlikley to have two homemade ones that look the same i would think? If it is factory they must be kinda rare. The only one ive ever saw mounted.

The Simplicity model no. for the rear weight is 990300 and it weighs about 46 lbs. Can also add two #990045 weights (25 lbs. ea.) to it.
