Easy to install
I just purchased these for winter to help with dozing the snow. I put them on last weekend, along with the dozer blade, and thought I would try it all out before the snow got here. The weights were extremely easy to install, and didn't know this before, but you can actually stack two weights on one wheel if needed. I was very satisfied with the quality, and the amount of weight it added to the mower. I'm glad I got them. The weights should be used in conjunction with the tire chains I believe, as I don't think the weights would be enough with just the traction of the tires alone

Wheel weight is for a GARDEN tractor, not a LAWN tractor
I mistakenly bought this wheel weight for my DYT 4000 Lawn tractor. It will only fit Garden tractors (which have bigger wheels). This is not very clear by the description. The store was no help when I called for assistance (prior to purchasing). I also tried the online chat with a rep...no help either. In the box, it recommends only attaching one weight (to the left side), saying attaching two will cause steering problems. Again, not clear on the website, so I bought two. I'm returning both and buying the smaller version (Quick-Secure). We'll see how it goes.

These Weights add weight, don't obstruct Valve Stem

I would gladly trade ease of installation for performance. There is a lighter-weight version of this tractor wheel weight with easy-install bolts, but they cover the valve stem and come loose over time. Their job is to be heavy! These weights are quite easy to install, if awkward to position due to their weight. I can't imagine someone who relies on their tractor to keep their driveway clear all winter, and doesn't mind blocking the valve stem. I've had tires start leaking during the season, and I didn't want to pull the wheel to have the tire repaired. As long as I inflated the tire before each use, it was fine. Removing and re-installing invites more opportunity for the part to fail somewhere. I would much rather have the weight on the wheel - that's where the traction comes from, so why attach the weight to the body, where the frame and transmission must handle the extra load? Mounting behind the tractor actualy takes load OFF the front tires, which can make it more difficult to steer (without traction, front tires can tend to slide instead of lead). These units come with only qty(2) bolts for installation. For piece of mind, I will probably buy a second set, so each weight is held to the wheel with qty(4) bolts (there are four holes on the weights, and four mating holes on each rim).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice weights, don't fit all tire sizes

I bought these weights because they were cheaper and heavier than the other brand Sears carries. Picked them up and tried to install them. No go on my JD with 24x12x12 tires. They have a lip on them that is larger in diameter than the rim without any clearance for the tire. Probably works fine on skinny 12" tires, but not mine. Had to exchange them for the other ones. They are designed so you can stack them, and even come with the hardware for it. Nice feature!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent for tilling a garden

Needed this for traction when tilling a garden with a pull behind tiller, It worked like a dream. Excellent traction and did not foul up with dirt as it cleaned itself.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 55 Pound Wheel Weight

This wheel weight is listed as being for the Craftsman 26 HP Tight Turn Garden Tractor (2 required, purchased separately).  While it does drop into place and the bolts align with the wheel, the wheel weight is pulled tight against the sidewall of the tire, thus wearing the sidewall every time the wheel turns.  Poor engineering.  The weight should be 4-bolted (not 2 bolted) to the wheel and a small space should exist between the weight and the tire.  I would not recommend this wieght set for this particular garden tractor.

A MUST for plowing with your Craftsman tractor

Bought these two years ago, figured I'd add my review to the masses! The first time I set these up on my tractor, they stayed attachted a total of 2 weeks, then the bolts started loosening and falling out. Solved the problem with LOC-TITE. Have not had them loosen up since, and I can remove them in a matter of minutes. They make a HUGE difference when plowing. Just add these, chains, and a blade and your good to go!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just the ticket.

We purchased this weight set for an '01-vintage Murray garden tractor. They fit well and the mounting holes on the wheels line up exactly. The Murray has super lug, or Ag tires, used to haul small logs and rounds from the woodlot where conditions can get muddy. These weights make a world of difference out there, traction is much better.

A note on Ag tires: The weights fit well, no interference with the sidewalls. If your tractor is fitted with Ag tires, tire chains are not needed.

The advantage is straightforward - you want additional weight on the wheels, not on the axles.

As previous reviews have mentioned, these weights are rather easy to install. Note the "rather". They are heavy at 55# and you've got to support them while mounting. I set an 8x8 timber beside the wheels to support the weights and raised the tractor rear with a garage jack to the correct height. Then it's simply a matter of slipping the bolts through and tightening the nuts.

One kit bag was missing a mounting bolt; somehow it had been substituted with a smaller, shorter bolt that won't do. The weight is mounted with one bolt for now. I'll pick up another later when I'm in town.

Absolutely, this accessory is for garden tractors with 12" wheels. They're not for lawn tractors with smaller wheels. 5 stars for quality construction, appearance and easy to follow instructions.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
