I have 2 sets of them.  They appear to have concrete in them.  I paid $100 per set delivered to a Sears near me, free pickup.  I always go by 50% of new.

Can sometimes find cast iron for about a buck a pound + shipping if u look around a little, or CL!

* Will last longer

* Have better resale

* Can be painted to last

* Easier to resell

* Cast iron VS Sand?????

* Anyone can buy MTD Weights...

* Cast iron takes up less side to side space past the rim, pound for pound.

Plastic weights are fine for a using tractor.  Just remember to not scrape them along any object such as retaining wall, fence, rock, or building, ETC.  They bust easily and then look awful.  If they are sand filled your sand will leak out.
