    Default Front end weights

    Recently posted a 3ph pallet fork on "build it yourself"
    To balance the load, I needed front weights. Called into local 2nd hand tractor dealers for some ideas. Showed me out to his rear yard, about 60 complete sets of weights for every "common" tractor make. "Something there should fit"
    Had the measurement of the front weight bracket. These "Ford" weights fit perfectly - a snug fit.
    Once home, cleaned and painted in Iseki blue, et voila!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Goes to show. No need to always look only for "badged" parts. Look around, there are plenty of options available. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    John,

    Weight isn't stamped, and to be honest, I haven't yet weighed them. Too eager to see how they looked once cleaned and painted [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
    I know one thing, carrying two is all you would manage at a time [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
    Price was 100 which I believe is $160 USD at current exchange rates.
    Will let you know when I have the correct weight.

    Saw some IH weights at an auction Saturday. They went for $25 apeice, but you had to buy all 10 of them. Watched the buyer struggle them out 2 at a time [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
