They will bolt on, as to weather they fit is in the eye of the beholder

Yes they fit but if your going to run doubles for snow plowing you might what to get the same ones. A friend of mine has the A weights, as I do, on his cub. He mounted standard cub weights on top of the A weights and had a time of it to get the bolts to line up. I told him he just should have mounted 2 cubs on one side and 2 A's on the other side.

I have a set on Merlin, and they do indeed mount as you can see. The bolt holes do not line up perfectly, but there is enough wobble in the bolts that allow them to fit. The A weights are not quite as heavy as Cub weights, as well, I believe.

Good to see you on the forum again, Jim!

Nope, the A weights are definitely heavier. The A weights are a bit over 150 pounds each. The Cub weights are 135 pounds each.

As far as the weight of each, are A weights the same as Super A weights? If so, here are comparisons from the parts manuals. Of course once we get to this much weight, a few pounds won't be a big difference.
