I guess they must have an overstock ?? Still glad you made me think about this today ,Thanks everybody gotta go warm up the truck !

    Now you're talking!!! .83 per lb. Not bad at all for new weights that are the specific dimensions and weight that you want!!!

    Maybe listed that way because they only sell lawn tractors ? I want this style because I can hang them in front or off the box blade .

    was either over the past weekend or earlier this week I seen some on CL for sale here in Ga, it had to be either Athens or Atlanta as they are the only 2 places I look at, Might be worth looking them up if still available, I suppose the drive to get them might be cheaper than the cost to ship them,
    if you still need them I'll try looking back for them,

    Oh they are closer than I remembered 5 miles up the road,

    I got 240 lbs of weights that had been on a tractor with a larger bumper, and made a shim from a 4x6 faced with steel plate to match up the mounting dimensions. Everything fits snug and is secured with bolts. Here's a photo from a couple of years ago.

    I subsequently found and adapted iron weights for the rear wheels too. Thread with photos - adapting the rear wheel weights to fit.

    Then my neighbor gave me 200 lbs of weights from scrapped exercise equipment. Each is the size of a paperback novel and weighs 10 lbs. I used two of them to fill the cavity on the front of my front weights. If you stand back far enough - it doesn't look too bad.

    Total iron ballast 410 lbs for $120. Plus filled tires. Finally I have enough traction to haul my watering trailer (weighs more than the tractor) uphill.
