Well I had to help my inlaws move family relics etc and move furniture out of an old spare room so they could turn it into another tv room. As I am sure most of you know I can think of about 1 million other things I'd rather do, But it did work out in my favor. Father in law was going to throw out his old weight set, so he let me have about 300 lbs worth of weights. They will come in handy for GT implement weight etc!!

Nice score and good idea. I built weight brackets for my wheels and use Cast weight plates on my compact tractor and on my JD317. I bought mine at yard sales mostly and ended up with over 600lbs to weigh down whatever needs it.

When my boy worked at Salvation Army for a while they would get weights and bench, etc. and it does not  sell so got put in a pen in the back.  A few months later I asked if he could get me some and when he went to get them the whole pile of stuff was gone.  Boss sold it all to a scrapper for little or nothing to get it cleaned up.  Haven't been able to find any since.  Bummer.

350$ for 2 plates- Yikes!! I remember getting 2 50 and 2 35lb plates from a guy for 75$ The 50lbers were just the right diameter to go inside the 16.5" rims on my 2320. I think the brand / type was Marcy Grip??

They are too big to go inside a 12" GT wheel but for the 2320 that gave me 85/wheel in one deal. I ended up with about 175/wheel and I still have 200lbs of 25 and 10lbers for the GTs. The wall mart flat grey plates are good because they don't have any rim around the edge and are thin for their weight allowing you to get more weight inside the rim so it doesn't stick out. I don't think they sell them any more but usesd ones are a good score for tractor weight. the 25lb ones will just fit into the outside section of a 12" rim.
