They were on a ST newer Bolens that was upside down I had a cutter cut the bolts for me...

Scaled them and they weighed 101 pounds. So at .20c a pound you do the math. :D

Oh man, what a deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I have 2 sets just like them, un-branded.  One set came off a Cub Cadet, the other I ordered off ebay.  One set was given to me, the other cost me about $75, and I thought $75 was a decent deal.  This was a few years ago.  Today $75 is a steal to your door.

With a number of tractors, more weights in stock is great! Good save!

 

I have in the past made wheel weights using brake drums. :wave:
