    Best place to buy front weights

    Hey all. I need to buy some front suitcase weights for my rig. Anyone have a good idea on where to buy them? I priced them online then rang up a $400 shipping bill. No dice. Anyone have better options?

    I've had good luck finding them on Craigslist and Facebook market place.

    Heavy Hitch has a variety of suitcase weights at reasonable prices and, as i recall, they have a special shipping arrangement with Fastenal so that buying them online is a good deal. I suggest you contact them for a quote.

    41 or 70 lbs? Where are you located? I just did a freight estimate on heavy hitch. For 4 weights shipped to me I'd be paying almost as much for the shipping as I'd pay for the weights. You may be better off with OEM

    Hello all, I've never priced 42# suitcase weights at the dealer, what do they charge? I've picked up a few off craigslist usually 40.00-50.00 plus where-ever I have to drive. I found Lowe's sells them for 65.00 OEM store pick-up. How does that compare to dealer price?

    They are listed at $59.91 each last time I checked and I received a $6.00 discount off that price from my local dealer, so $53.91 each, no shipping charge if they have done bulking shipping from Deere and it is in a large wooden shipping crate that held 200 of them.

    Often, this time of year, people are taking off the winter equipment and for some reason, thinking they won't need suitcase weights again. I looked at my invoice when I bought my tractor and I paid $53 each for 10 of them.

    I am amazed at what some pay on Craigslist and other online listings. It must be because they don't know what they cost at the dealer.

    Also, dealers often have "used" weights from take off implements, etc. Make sure to ask. A little rattle can paint and they are as good as new.

    I bought mine at the dealer. I scoured Ebay, Craigslist, FBook MarketPlace, local tractor yards... found the best price was the dealer in the end.
