Letter series through 450?

Yes you are correct.     I would like to find some for the standards of that era.    W9-650. The look similar but larger diameter.

#6788 fits super C thru 450

#9042d fits W9 thru 650 wheat lands and high clear tractorsWith the 20” wheels , the smaller weights are easy to find around here , the larger 9042 are much harder to find.

What tractor is that wheel on in the picture?  Looks like a solid wheel.

That’s my 560D. Just leaned it against there for the picture.

They were advertised as Cub Cadet weights. But when I saw them in person  I knew they weren’t . Seller realized it also after someone passed on them. I also knew they were a lot more uncommon than Cub weights so I took them anyway. Don’t fit anything I have. So far.

6788D weights 42.5 lbs & fits 16” rims.  Farmall type tractors are not that common out west I did not know a lot about them.  Had gone to couple rpru's & noticed front wheel weights on them.  Was in southern Ontario on holidays,  found a set of front wheel weights in Buffalo & a set north of Detroit.  Picked set in Buffalo & headed for Detroit.  Hindsight should drove thru Cleveland,  crossing from US to Cdn back to US was bad idea.  US border guards could not believe I was going to ball games & buying old tractor parts.  Image the time travel was their reason for concern as was 4 hr trip from NY via ON to MI.  Car got ripped apart,   mirrors on wheels,  dogs,  etc.  Got to answer the same 7 questions times over a coarse of 2hrs.  It was an eye opening experience for this farm kid from Alberta.  Finally made to north of Detroit & picked up the other set of weights.  Got them sent back home.  Went to put them on the Super W6 with 18" rims & they don't fit.  Started searching the net & learned what these weights are for.

9042D weights 73 lbs & fits 18” & bigger.  Which includes Super W6,  W400 & W450’s.  Saw these weight on Yesterday tractor classifieds for sale.  This time I was prepared with part number,  cardboard cut out the 18" hub with holes punched out.  Also traced out the 16" rim weight so I didn't buy more of the smaller weight.  Drove from Alberta to Iowa to pick them up & made a holiday of it.

I know they are practical, but I never liked the way they made the front wheels look on a letter or hundred series.

Cub Cadet rear wheel weights are the same as Farmall Cub front wheel weights

IHBowden,  how many 9042 do you have?

I’ve had three sets but only have one set right now,  I think I have about 15 sets of the smaller 6788 weights.
