Was having traction problems in my yard while mowing. My yard has some mild banks and is not very level. Once I added the weights to the wheels the traction greatly improved. Adding the weights was very easy. The wheels on my Craftsman mower came with holes for the mounting shafts. Took me about twenty minutes to install the shafts. Once the shafts are installed the weight mount over the shafts and screw into the shaft. The screw part has a toggle end that makes it easy to screw in and once it is tight the toggle flips over onto the weight. Done deal and ready to use!! Recommend to anyone who is having traction problems. Also lowers the center of gravity and makes it less likely to turn over.
Needed to add weight to lawn tractor for better traction on slopes. I've only had them for about a week but so far they do make a difference. Were fairly easy to install and seem to be on nice and tight. I wish the tire valve stem was not blocked. The air pressure gauge that came with it is a piece of junk, does not work. Threw it in the trash.
These weights solve the problem of bad center of gravity when you have a front-loaded snow blower. You still need chains anyway. Even with weights and chains, you will get stuck in the snow until you get used to driving under various conditions. Installation was pretty easy, even on the ground; but I recommend you use ramps if you have them. Ramps aren't cost-effective unless you do lots of tractor maintenance. Once you get the quick-connect bolts on, the levers work fine and just screw in (two per wheel) to secure the weights. Be careful and observant while operating the tractor to check the quick-connects and tighten them, because you will lose them in the snow. Use protective oil coating after the winter to keep the bolts rust-free. Store the quick-connects with the weights, unless you want to lose them in the grass in the summer.
I went two years without weights on the tires just chains. I figured that since I weighed 275 lbs that I didn?t need any more weight. I was sure wrong, I put on these weights and there?s no comparison to the traction I have now. They are well worth the money and wish I?d done it two years ago.

The weights look GREAT , But you have to remove them to air up the tires and the Cam Locks are USELESS and the weights come loose.. BUT and again Its a BUT if you are at all handy with tools yoy Can deflate and break down the insde of the tire and drill ahole in the rim and INSTALL another Tire Valve . I used the bolt on type that uses the smaller hole for less drilling. ALSO I replace the useless cam bolts with regular bolts and leave the weights in place now that i can add air from the insade of the tire. Be sure you get the correct wights for your wheel size and you will love them
Good instructions. Instillation was easy enough for a novice to do. The weights worked great giving the tractor the extra traction it needed for our steep hill side.
This seems like a good product but be more careful than I was when ordering. I have a GT5000 tractor and after receiving these weights found that the item I need was a different item number. These are 24445 and for my tractor I needed 24446 - 1 digit makes all the difference in fit.
Had them installed in 10 minute and that included getting and putting away the tools. For the folks that had or are having issues installing the nuts in the back of the wheel, roll the tractor forward or backward to bring the holes to the bottom of the wheel. As far a shearing bolts, don't use a tool on installing the retaining studs. If they are too tight, once you get on the tractor, the tires will spread wider (your added weight) and the strain on the studs along with going over bumps can strip or shear the studs. They are only meant to hold the weight on, not support the tire pressure.
