    Default suitcase weights

    I have been looking high and low for some new or used suitcase weights. I found a lot of them but the shipping cost was was very high. I finally found some at the Home Depot with FREE shipping! They are 42lb John Deere weights and fit perfectly on the front of my YM2000. I don't know how long free shipping will last, so you might want to jump on it.Rear Suitcase Weight-BG20029 at The Home Depot

    I have been looking everywhere for these new or used , I'm going to order 12 about 500 lbs and would never have thought Home Depot would carry them and with free shipping it's a no brainer . I found 3 on ebay but the seller would not ship them ,Thanks lancem you just made my day ! P.S. The ups man is going to hate me !

    OUCH,,, $1.40 per lb. Best place to find weights is at farm sales. Most can be bought for .50 per lb or less.

    Maybe this isn't possible, but have you guys checked at a dealership?? I can't imagine that your local JD dealer would charge more than $1.40 per lb. Seems the going rate for new weights is $1.00 per lb.

    I tried to buy them at a few local auctions and the price always ended up over $75.00 each rusted , you have to remember they have that nice little Deere on them !

    I've bought a lot of weights as farm sales. These are White suitcase weights, 105lb each, paid .30 per lb. There are deals out there, just gotta be patient.

    Now you got me thinking and I called the local JD dealership they priced me at $90.00 each back in December and had to order them , That's why I started looking else where Now 5 minutes ago they priced me at $35.00 each and had 9 in stock ?? I guess they must have an overstock ?? Still glad you made me think about this today ,Thanks everybody gotta go warm up the truck !

    My local JD dealership wanted $92 for the exact same weights. My local kubota dealership just looked at me like i had two heads.
