The first was the Bolens patch that I thought I bought on eBay awhile back.  The seller had two different ones, and I relied on the pic as opposed to the description, and got one like I already had.

I contacted him, and rather than going to all the trouble of sending it back I told him I would keep it and buy the 'proper' one as well. So, it got here today.

I found a 'goodie' on the Eastern WV CL sometime back. I contacted the seller and asked if he would ship it for the additional shipping cost. He agreed to ship it and sent it out on 9/2 via 2-day priority. It FINALLY arrived today.

 

Seems like the packaging fell apart at some point and USPS took their time getting it here.

 

It looked like this when it arrived.

So, what was in it?  I'll let you guys guess for a bit, but here is a hint :D :D :D

I'm with Daniel on it being a weight, but I can't tell if it's a front end weight or not.

Not a wheel weight I don't think.  Maybe a counterweight for the forklift?

It's the first one I've ever seen as well.

 

I'm thinking that it was for the Iseki/Bolens tractors.

 

I'm thinking that it will work fine on the HDT1000 once a mount is fabbed for it.

If you see them again, please let me know.  I'd like at least 2 more.

 

Oh I forgot to mention, it's in the 35# range.

Alot of the suitcase weights were sold with the Iseki's

I have seen quite a few at shows on other brands of tractors around here.
