Hi guys,

 

My TA22 wheel weight spacers, studs and nuts I ordered from Dandy Sales just arrived! I've always wanted a dual set-up, and now I can! Here are the pictures. This box made it from Massachusetts to Illinois travelling1200+- miles and this is how the box shows up at my door. Jim sure know how to pack an item for safe delivery! He built a wooden box inside the cardboard box for safe shipping! You don't even want to know how much these set me back!

The next thing to do is paint them and put them on one. Were they originally white or turquoise? I forgot to ask Jim.

He said I ordered the last. They reproduced about 50 sets 7 or 8 years ago. He said no one wanted to pay the shipping. He said they will probably not make any more of these. He said it took too long to sell them. They weigh about 35-40 pounds each. The box was about 90 pounds between the weights, studs, nuts, box and crate he had built. I bet the UPS guy was pissed about that one! Oh well.

I wish I would have known about them, that would be an awesome setup to have on a panzer. At least they will get put to good use on your tractor. Let us know how they work out for you. I might see if a few people I know might be interested in buying a set or more for their tractors and see if he would be willing to make some more. Would you mind if I used a few of your pictures that you put on here to show them what they look like?

Bet unwrapping the box, it was hard to be restrained.

Looks like they will do a fine job.

I was pretty excited. I have been looking for a set of these for quite some time. I have always wanted duals, a loader and a snow blower. Who am I kidding? I want all of the attachments! One down, two to go.

Does anyone know what the original color of the TA22 wheel weight spacers should be? I want to put them on for use and take them to a show in Indiana in a few months.

 

Thanks!

I haven't seen a lot of them but the ones I have seen still had some turquoise paint left on them.

Jim Haynes is one hell of a great guy.  You dealt with the best.  That compliment goes for Ellen too.
