Help me ID these weights.

Recommended Posts


I have two sets just like them. I'm not sure what brand they are. I suspect they could be early Gilson weights. Both were originally painted yellow like the Gilson-built montgomery ward tractors.

you got a great deal. those ebay prices are very creative - umm, kinda. Prices near me are all over the place - some people talk a dollar a pound. Some are $20-50I paid 65 for mine. Guy wanted 100. They're Bolens. 2x50 lbs. Pretty similar appearance. They just don't look like they weigh that much; until you pick'em up; or throw them on a scale. Surprise. What do yours weigh?Found this pix I forgot I had. They are very similar to yours.Rusty olde junk, eh. :DSame guy has the tractor for sale for I think $1500 - not sure, think it's an HT-20 repowered to 25ish - one huge tractor, makes my 716 look like a lil crapsman. 8)

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
