    Default JD 5303 Rear wheel weights

    I bought a 2005 JD 5303 2 wd. with a 512 loader. Problem is it has NO weight in the rear end. Does anybody know where to get reasonably priced weights for it? I don't really want to Juice the tires. Around here the cost is almost the same to Juice or add weights. If I juice the tires and poke one I got to do it all again! Any Ideas?? Thanks AL

    I would look around locally for some weights to save on freight costs but realistically you may have to bite the bullet. Their kind of high in price but I agree about Juice it can be problematic too.

    This might solve your problems.

    It would be easily removable, use what ever slab weights you could find and won't cause problems when a tire goes flat. The Deere wheel weights seem expensive to me but that is a possibility also.

    Thanks for the link, that would solve the weight problem when using the loader. but that won't help when I need to use the 3 pt. hitch. or pulling a piece of equipment. The problem with a John Deere tractor is you can only use their weights! they don't make a fits all kind to fit! So far ,this has been the only problem I've had with this tractor. so my feeling is..if this is my "big" problem I don't have much to complain about!! I'm very happy with the tractor.it's done all I have expected it to do. AL

    I have had the same question for a while myself. Thus far, I've just been making sure I keep something on the 3 point.

    Keep us posted.

    I'm still in search for rear wheel weights. I need weight yet I need to leave the 3 pt. hitch open for equipment. I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and buy the JD Wheel weights. I'm thinking 400 Lbs. each side? anybody got thoughts on how much more or less I should be looking for?

    I would consult the manual to see what the maximum number of weights per wheel is.
    On a 4x20 series it is three per wheel at 110 lbs each. I would go for max wt.
