At work and need to know the dimension of the front tongue of the standard JD 42 lb suitcase weights as indicated in the pic (editing pics on a phone stinks).
Or 1/2” after a grinder shine! 😎Mark, I've read other posts about 42# weights not fitting on 1/2" plate. I think (??) the older weights with an Rxxxx parts number will fit, but those with a BMXXXX don't!
I DO know that the front weight bracket for a 318 uses a 7/16" plate to mount the weights. Bob
You can get heavy hitch weights. Pickup yourself for free or shipped by fastenal for a fee or shipped directly to home but probably cost more than deere weights after shipping.While we’re on the subject of the suitcase weights, is there a lower cost alternative to the JD 40 lb ones. They’re stinking expensive. But then maybe that’s just the cost of the material being high?
I just bought a heavy hitch setup with 16 of their weights. Good quality and reasonable price. Fastenal shipping was excellent, and WAY less costly then UPS to my door.You can get heavy hitch weights.

Well, being honest here, nothing happened today. Tomorrow may be a different story.This sounds like a true "Government Project", being done at work, during work hours, with their machinery and some "borrowed steel".
