I got these two wheel weights with one of my Bolens Power Ho's. Note that they are similar, but not identical. I have not weighed them to be sure, but I suspect that the one on the left weighs more than the one on the right because it is significantly thicker. The one on the right has a stepped edge on the back side, unlike the one on the left.

 

So, are these actually Power Ho weights? Are either one? (The one on the right seems to nest into the rim nicely.)

I should note that they were not ON the Power Ho when I got it; they were just included (with no comment) in the deal.

Those are for sure not factory bolens Can't really tell but are there four holes that are on the outer part?

Both of the weights have 4 holes in the outer area. Those holes seem to line up with the appropriate holes in the rims.

. Interesting! I'm guessing a different make but who knows I honestly can say I haven't ever seen any like this in any bolens literature or documention

Even so, I am thinking that until I can find the correct weights, I will pretend that they are, and paint them up to match the Power Ho paint scheme
