I got two 41 pounders from Redland Hill, 60 bucks delivered and hooked them on to the MF-14s bumper to counter balance the Brinly tandem disc, I may get two more, but these two helped ALOT!

I like that Good Stuff :thumbs:

 

How many of those weights would fit that if you didn't have the hitch on?

Very NICE massey!  How well does the tandem disk work for you?  Do the hydraulics handle the weight ok?  Are those weights for sale to the general public?

Nice, they look pretty sharp up there.
I bet it did help the turn radius, was that $60 each or both?

Those look good on there.

Are they plastic coated? (hard to tell in the pics)

I'm sure it would hold 5 easy.   The frame is 14" wide and I think the weights are around 2 1/2" wide.

The hydraulics raise and lower fine, I just needed the front weight to keep the front end down. that disc can almost plow a field. These discs were sold back in the 1970s and 1980s for big GTs like th eMassey 1855 and Bolens HT20, both of which had three points, they also made a bigger plow, and cultvator. The weights are on ebay from redlandhill which sells LOTS of great stuff for big GTS

Nice Massey 14 they look good in the front. I like that style of ag tires too. I know when i plow with my MF 10 with wheel weights and filled tires the fron end gets a little light.

Looks good on there Mike!! Keeping the front end on the ground makes it a lot easier to concentrate and drive straight.
