Too bad!

Scrapper could have parted it and figured the weight was too expensive to ship?

It is cast iron and they may be waiting for the clean cast prices to go back up.

It was in there cast pile most likely got thrown there by the guy who scraped it and tractor has been long gone.  I asked and looked around none of the guys who worked there seen a green one wheel walk behind.

I wonder what the tractor would have looked like... that paint is still pretty good on a cast iron weight. 

 

*Sigh*

Hang onto it you may end up with a tractor that is missing the weight I have seen several that way You had to remove the weight to install the rotor tiller attachment
