Picked up a couple of sets of wheel weights off a parts tractor a guy was selling, got 1 set of the Massey 2pc weights and another set of cast iron 1pc weights, not sure what they were made for. The Massey weights weigh 40lbs a side (2halfs) and the white ones are 26lbs each. The white ones are stack-able on each other and they also stack right on top of the 2pc Massey weights. Both sets can be mounted inside or outside, the hole in the center of the white ones goes right over the hub, about 1/4" clearance.

The white weights are Cub Cadet weights. Same ones I just put on the Bush Hog.

How much did you give for all the weights Doug? If you don't mind me asking. I like the Cub Cadet weights the best out of all of them because of being stack-able. I just took the two piece Massey weights off of the MF12H and put them on the MF12G today because the 12G has the ag tires on it and I may be using it to plow again. I didn't like mounting them weights at all. The other thing I don't like is you have to pull the weights off to remove the wheel. Where with the Cub weights the opening is big enough that you can still get the lug nuts off.

I'd be interested to know what you had to give for them as well. I'm looking for another set like the white ones. I have 2 sets of them already, one for Cub, one for JD, but other than the stamping that says JD (yellow) or IH (white), they are identical.

I saw you had 2 sets on you Bush hog that looked similar, I going to paint the white ones Massey red and mount them to the inside of my narrow AGs that I have.
I paid $190. for both sets of weights, 2 rear tires with rims, 1 seat assembly, 1 good plastic nose ring and some nuts+bolts, clips, basically took all the good parts I wanted off the tractor instead of buying the tractor. Not a bargain but not too much either, around here cast wheel weights are hard to fine and usually $$$.

Also I got the headlights and bracket included.

I think you did pretty good on everything! Around here, you'd have $130 in just the weights (typically $1 a Lb). Not bad at all. Thanks for the reply!

$1 a Lb I've heard that before, seems to be the starting point around my area.

The white cub cadet rear wheel weights were originally/simultaneously used on the IH Farmall Cub regular and Lo-boy as front wheel weights. They will fit any Farmall Cub from the initial production in the late '40's to the end of production in '79. They were painted red initially, then white when the Cubs went to a yellow and white scheme in the '60s and then back to red in the 70's. If you look to sell them, they usually attract a pretty good price from Farmall Cub collectors. IH Cub Cadet people would know better, but I'm pretty sure that IH shared a few other parts including the transmission, between the Farmall Cub Tractor and the earliest Cub Cadet Lawn Tractors in order to lower production costs.

Nice set of weights! Not a bad deal for everything you got. Some pay near that for the extras you got, so you got the weights for free :D
