When I bought my 318 loader tractor it came with a poorly made weight bracket that wobbled all over the place and basically looked like crap. I took it off and it and the weights for it have been sitting in the corner of my shop for over a year now.

The weights themselves look fine. They are 3/4 inch plate and a gang of 4 of them tip the scale at 61 pounds. The problem is that I either need to get more of them to put on a better weight bracket or just get rid of these altogether and go a different route.

Does anyone recognize them?

Agree, look to be homemade to me. I know some pullers use weights like these to get the perfect weight they want to pull with. Depending on where you are and price i might be interested if you decide to go a different route.

I'd somewhat assumed homemade but these are obviously CNC cut either a really nice plasma or a waterjet. I've seen the garden tractor puller versions and those are usually not this heavy. I was hoping maybe somebody somewhere was offering them up.

I have seen them when I was looking at weights but I don't remember where I find them. I'll have to google that again.

Maybe see why the weight bracket wobbles. Honest weights are weights. If you don't like them wobbling you could go fluid filled rear tires.

The weight bracket is based on a poorly made 2 inch receiver and then raised up high and wide I'm assuming to avoid the accessibility of the hitch. It's been replaced with a much better designed one.
