Yes, with the optional eye bolt lifting devices.

Ken, it was parked all the way in the back of the swap area. I talked to the owner for a while (No I wasn't trying to buy it :lol: ) and he said he had no potential buyers but everybody was taking pictures.

I think he should have been trying to sell the weights instead of the tractor. :headbang

I saw that one . My first thought was "Dang , that works" . My next was "Thank You Lord I didn't have to come up with this casting
job" .

The owner is local to Fredericktown (Myers Towing and Automotive) and comes nearly every year. Real nice fella. I talked to him about them, and we were both guessing in the area of 200 pounds per weight. Concrete is not as heavy as cast iron, and these were not as big around as a cub weight, but were approximately twice as thick.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

If they are 200 lbs they would 50 lbs more per weight than the cast cub weights. I have 3 sets of Farmall weights so I an set for awhile :D

Well , nominal concrete weight is what , 145-50 pounds per cubic foot ? Guess it depends on which "expert" you listen to .

Them weights are a useful solution to the need , so job well done .

I agree, and if I didn't have 3 sets I would consider trying to make concrete one's.
