Calm down clmsonfor. Here it is. Tractor Wheel Weight Adapters - Lugghandles - Put A Little Weight On!
Thanks for the link. i had been thinking on making some of these awhile back.
I was not going to click on any link from a new poster, in a thread about wheel weights, that the item is called "lug handles" you see my concern I guess? Got a virus at work awhile back and could not do anything for over a week!! House computer has had several and been down for days each time. NO I did not get them from TBN but I sure am hesitant.
Hi: Just wanted to put my two cents in. I'm the owner of lugghandles.com. I promise it's a safe site. It's only a month old so there's not a lot out there about it yet. Been posting them on ebay for a couple years now as "Universal" Wheel Weight Adapters and coming up with new models all the time - Amazing how many different ways manufacturers can thwart your attempts to standardize anything so you have to buy their brand LOL. I have 27 (I think) Farm tractors, Compact tractors, Garden Tractors, and a Husqvarna Zero Turn - and my weight adapters on most of them. Hope this helps. Mike G.
(I assume you are asking about the rear wheels? Mine work best for Garden and compact tractors. If your rear wheels have 3 or 4 holes for attaching weights, I have a set that will fit. I have heard of people hanging 4-50 pound weights on each side of them, but I haven't found their breaking point yet. It is a 1" thick solid steel rod though. The other alternative is the rod-through-the-3-point-hitch solution. Hang a row of 25s or 50's on a steel rod across the 3 point lift arms. For sure, put a chain through the center and hook it to your top link mount so you're not carrying all that weight on your lift cylinders. Fastest way I know to damage a 3 point lift is to carry a thousand pound implement around on the hydraulic components forever. I use a cable on each end of mine for support to minimize the left-right swinging action too. It's got several advantages: 1: You can lift it above your drawbar and continue to pull your trailer with it. 2: You can dismount it simply by lowering it to the ground and it will roll around easily - no lifting! 3: It's several feet shorter than a grader blade or bush hog - the two most common things I see being used for rear end ballast. 4:Go on Craigslist I'll be you can get the weights cheap or even free. Can't say the same for a used mower. 5: Well, you can get a weight bench and get some excercise in between uses LOL!
