IH "Slab Cut" Front Weights


Recommended Posts

Think you mean what they call flame cut. My red power 1486 came with 16 of them. They don't weigh 100 lb,  more like 70-75.

Slab weights or flame cut weights, same thing. Just depends on what part of these here United States your standing on as to what they are called. They are not as hard to find as those set of weights that are underneath. I have only ever seen them in dealer pictures, never in real life. The same weights were used on the 4166 with a different base.

Instant finger remover handles on those flame cut weights if you don't stagger the handles!  We used weights similar to those in steel boxes to test elevator installations.  They also had those staggered handles, if you unloaded a box, you wanted to make sure you stacked them back in the box correctly to avoid smashed fingers.

We used to pull a 16 row 955 planter with a 1586. Front end was very light, especially in transport. Tried to find a set of those extra weights that are below the suitcase weights. Agree very rare, never seen them other than my sales literature.

Those weights went on the bottom of the 5X88s as well.  Mostly were used in the early MFD tractors to add more weight including the 12 suitcase weights to equal approx. 2000 lbs.  I have made that bracket, weights and thru bolt.

Amazes me how often we see a few here and there at sales. Often all the handles are the same. Trying to get a complete set with half rear handles and half front isn't the easiest it seems.

That's what I like best about mine, the opposing handles so I don't pinch hand and a little lighter to lift

Grandpa’s 1086 is a 1978 model and I believe they were on it from new.
