Hey everyone Two weekends ago a Sunday I was a Sam s house we plow his field up. My 74 110 work great half the time. I will fix that problem. I know want the problem is. Where can I find some front weight? I looked around find picture of 140 with front weight that I like. I know I can get a suit case weight from my dealer but no mount bracket. Then I know where I can get the mount bracket for the other weights but I don't know where to get the weights? Picture about last question.

Do you need weight on the front or the back? You could always put wheel weights on the front wheels if you need it up front.

Well the puzzle that gets me is that unless you can find the weight close by shipping would cost more than the weights.

The weights on that 140 look like heavy plate cut to size and drilled for mounting. That you could probably find in a salvage yard and make them to suit you.

Or you could form up and make concrete weights?   Hmm shame your not closer, there are a couple concrete deer yard ornaments out front I have been meaning to haul to the ditch, you could have.

They might look cool on your Deere?

Since I started having Garden raiders, I'm not too fond of deer?

There are regular suitcase weights that various manufacturers produced.  The mount used on the 140 in the pic fit the square fender 100/200/120/140/300 series tractors. They show up on a regular basis.  You could also make one fairly easily if you weld or know a welder.

Hey, I know that tractor. That belongs to deere140, Tom Eller.

 

The weights shown on his tractor weight about 35lbs each, and were factory John Deere weights. I currently have nine of these weights, but I'm not ready to sell them yet. You can find them on ebay every now and then, and they usually sell for between $125.00 - $150.00 each. Shipping for each of them can be run through the US Postal Service for around $10-$12.00. There are other brackets available for mounting these weights to the front and rear of round fender 110's and 112's also. Hapco, one of our site sponsors was reproducing these at one time, but I don't think they are anymore.

As for front wheel weights, they are available too, but these will cost you more in the range of between $150.00 - $200.00 for a set. 

 

Good luck on your search Kevin, and I hope you find what you are looking for.

Thanks everyone I didn't know if the weight on front of the 140 was factory JD. I will be looking around more on ebay. I know alzwelding makes a front bracket for the suit case weight. I'm going to have to email them for a price and for same pictures. The own is not home for winter.

I did not see them on Al's site earlier.

Kevin,

 

Hapco sells a reproduction front weight bracket like I have shown in my pictures above for $119.00. I'm pretty sure you can hang suitcase weights on it if you don't find any of the flat frame weights like on Toms 140. Just a suggestion.

I built this grille guard / weight bracket and used suit case weights as shown.  With the 2 weights at around 80 pounds was all I ever needed for plowing.
