Weight of this 1456?


Recommended Posts

anyone know around how much this weights? Has the heavy 508i wheel castings, big hubs rock box belly tank. Theres a tractor pull coming up and they have 13k out of field and 16500 with duals and was wondering how close this would be for them classes20200421_194234.thumb.jpg.761888dd76006127392c3f6bb968f216.jpg20200301_160754.thumb.jpg.28a00718ebf4d27fc4f954e35e92ecc7.jpg

the duals are the heavy style 18" wide, they were silver before. And the rice and canes are ridiculously heavy, i can usually flip an 18.4 38 dual on the ground up easy but not these

We weighed mine back in the day............... '06 widefront, 4 deere weights(close to 100's), modified massey weight bracket, JD tool box with tools, fenders, no duals, no hubs, klinger sway limiters, 20.8 Firestone deeptreads full of fluid, was almost right on 14k on the scale with a tank of fuel.

Years ago my dad had his 1566 down to 12,000 but no fluid, no hubs, low on fuel, no extra weights, and had fenders, no cab.  My guess with the heavy cast centers, belly tank, duals, and cab, you’ll be somewhere in the 14-15,000 area?!

Beautiful 1456!  Seems like dad's 1256 with cab, duals, 4 sets of rear weights, inner tires loaded with calcium and 700 pounds of front end weights was 14,000 or so pounds but that was many years ago.  We had a set of  scales at the farm because we sold fertilizer and at one time I knew what each tractor we had weighed.

Fill the rock box with helium balloons....then it'll be light enough! B)    Then you can pull the cord after the last pull and let them all float away.....

11k and some change is as light as I've seen our 1456.     20.8's no cab and none of them other goodies. . I would just fill her up with fuel and rocks and go for the 16k class. Our "heavy grudge match" class was always 16k, always a good time. Good Luck

This one weighed right around 11,200 as you see it here, 10 ply radial 18.4-38 rear tires.  I still think you're in that 13,500-14,000 lb range as it sits

That really surprises me, thought for sure it'd be heavier than that.

I'd go Low 3rd, let it lug way down, to 1000-1100 RPM, then pull the T/A back & watch it come back to life.
