 I need some weight up front using my box blade.  I have been looking for front wheel weights for my PK2414 tractor.  They seem hard to find.  What are you using?

 

I was wondering if the little John Deere suitcase weights they sell at Home Depot for the garden tractors would fit on the front of a PK tractor?

I run wheel weights on the inside and outside of the front wheels.

 

The factory bumper/weight rack is a nice heavy built unit,  but its mounts are NOT designed to carry much weight.

First, that bumper out front is NOT a weight bracket and is only held on by two 3/8" bolts, one each side. Weights were put in wheels. The front wheels should be 12" and are same as on an IH Cub, not Cadet, but the bigger Cub. SO, weights for those are what most guys are using on the PK's. Two bolts holds them on easy. Not sure weight on those. Putting two on, not sure if room, but if others have done so, guess will work. The rears are also Cub wheels and can put same brand on there, OR, even the bigger ones off an A model will still bolt to those wheels.

Here you go a bit spendy but the only ones on ebay, you could ballast the front tires with windsheild washer fluid.

Hi front wheel wts are never cheap I don't know what they sell for because  at what there priced I just never stop and look or deal. One thing to take in consideration on that deal is it includes free shipping which would be a good chuck of change

That's probably why they are that expensive. Shipping could be nearly half that!

Another option is to build a weight bracket that mounts to the frame mounts. Here is mine. The bottom pic is after I modified it to mount a snow blade on it.

Do these look like the right wheel weights for the front?
