    Wheel Weights

    Do many of you guys use wheel weights? I have a JD 3320 and have been thinking of adding some. I currently do not have my tires filled but always have a heavy implement on the back. I don't want to fill my tires because sometimes I'm on soft turf and want to be able to take the weight off. Are they easy to put on and take off? How much do they cost and weigh. I can't seem to find much info on them online. Thanks guys!

    I have 2 110 pound weight on each side. With 2 people and an impact wrench they aren't too bad to get on and off....they are just heavy and awkward. The first weight bolts to the rim, and the second weight bolts to the first weight.
    There are 55 pound ones also (I think), but I haven't seen them.
    I think they were about 1.30 per pound.

    I have one each ~70lbs weight on each side, and can attach another set of those if I want. Mine are the turtle style weights and I got them from my dealer for a very good price. He ships stuff almost all over the US. if you want, I PM you the info.

    I also run iron, but mine are mounted on the inside of the rim. They would not be as easy to remove as you have to remove the rim first. I have 220 on each rim.

    Let me weigh in on this. Pun intended. Like everything else there are pros and cons to filling your wheels. It’s a lot easier to take iron wheel weights on and off than to empty and refill the wheels with liquid. Unless it’s done correctly filling your wheels will corrode them. Again, unless it’s done right (filled 75% or so) the tractor will bounce at speed and rock when you stop and change direction. Even if done right there is more of a flywheel effect when starting stopping and changing direction like loader work and worse if not filled correctly. All of that is harder on the brakes and drive line. If you need to service your wheels, change width, or servicing the tractor, it’s a lot easier to remove iron wheel weights, take off, and move around a wheel that is not filled with liquid. Pros to filling the tires are you can add a lot of weight without special weights to fit your wheels and much more weight can be added without tire load rating penalty, and it’s cheap. Since you are concerned about “soft turf” go with the iron wheel weights. I bought two 110lbs wheel weights for the 3720 I just ordered and they list for $277.60 each. These should fit your tractor. JD also has the 50lbs weights for $140.80 each. You will also need attaching hardware. I’ll post pictures of the weights when I get the tractor if you want.

    Hope this helps.

    I bought 4 of the JD 110 lb weights for my 990 looking to put 2 on each wheel. They are expensive!!! List per 110 lb wheel weight part# T19293 was $277.64 and I bought them for $250.57 ($2.28 per lb) with the Green Farm Parts 5% discount for GTT members. They were with free shipping from GFP. You may want to look at Lonestar weights and castings in TX who have weights that will fit as well. This reference is not original from me. Someone else in another thread on GTT posted about this company. The weight would be the LS301 for the 24" wheel. (they do not make any smaller wheel weights at this time) They are 107 lb for each or 214 lb for a pair and they are stack-able just like JD's and they can come in JD yellow as well. You will have shipping unless your located in their free zone and you buy enough weights. When it came to the wheel weights my calculation showed that I would have saved a couple $100 if I would have purchased from them instead of purchasing the JD weights and that included the shipping to NJ from TX. I wish I would have heard about them sooner.

    They have suitcase weights as well but after Kenny did the calculations with the shipping it was 6 and 1 or a half dozen the other in just buying the JD weights but maybe if you are closer to them you can save some money. Below is the link to the company.

    I personally would NOT want to take wheel weights on and off very often. Once a year when I had the GT was enough for me and they were much lighter than what you need.

    I agree on soft turf and have that issue with my SCUT as well so I want something hanging off the back that's easy to remove.

    I run iron instead of filling. Pretty much for the reasons mentioned.
