While at the show, I went by the scale at the tractor pulls. Asked the guys if I could weigh Alice. 'Sure!' So up on the scales I went. I was surprised and so were they! Alice had the front suitcase weights and 3-point plow on, basic plowing setup. And this is what she weighs in at with me on her...........

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1408 lbs.

 

That's a lot more than I figured!

Kenny, I think that you may have to lose weight. Good Luck, Rick

I'm down below 160, Rick! Much more and I have to stay inside when the wind blows!

First, that 3-point 12" plow is heavy. Got 80 pounds in my two front weights. Back tires are filled with WW fluid and have 80 pounds in wheel weights per side. One tire, wheel, fluid and weights is 200 lbs. My ~160 lbs. The rest is Alice.

I, unfortunately, have 60 pounds too many. I would love to give them away. Good Luck, Rick

It doesn't matter, it's almost Thanksgiving. Then Christmas. We'll work on the weight issue on New Year's. Promise.

I have misplaced my owners manual for the Bolens 1054, but I downloaded one for the 1050 and it says 645 lbs, should be about the same.  I have 40 lbs of RV antifreeze in each rear wheel and 25 lbs of home built weights on each side (130 lbs total).The plow and sleeve hitch combined should be another 200 lbs and I am around 180 lbs. Totals out to 1155 lbs ready to plow. It could use some more weight up front, it does not like to turn. I am actually surprised that Alice is that light ready to plow.

I thought we were talking bare tractor weight. I have 150 lbs of wheel weights, sleeve hitch with electric actuator, front bracket with 80 lbs (not on unless needed). So it can weigh around 1100 plus any implementation.

It surprised me it was so high. Gotta remember this is not a 'stock' tractor, so I guess I added more weight during the build.

I have read your build thread on Alice and she looks to be a very sturdy machine, a lot bigger than my tube frame Bolens. Your total weight including the front suitcase weights is only 253 lbs more than mine and I don't have front weights on it yet .
