Got these with the Bolens 775 I bought yesterday.  Feel like about 50 lbs each.  Cast iron with the outside and wide edge covered with a plastic coating.  Has a crinkle type finish.  Center is blank or not readable any more.  Fit the Bolens wheel perfectly.  I think they are Bolens weights.  Weights.JPG

Usually those are cast concrete filled plastic. The center cap usually has the brand. They work as well as any other wheelweights. Good Luck, Rick

Look like Craftsman wheel weights. They usually have a sticker in the center that say Craftsman on them. Probably made by some company for any brand that wants them and they put that brand's name on them.

If they are concrete they did a heck of a good job on them.  Look more like cast iron to me.  don't make any difference I guess as they are heavy and will work great when and where I need them.  Might put them on the 1256 when using the plow and tiller.

Bingo, I have a similar set for my 73 WH, mine are a little bit lighter, and have a Wheel Horse logo in the center.
