I own a 9N with a 8N engine. It has rear wheel weights that are very very heavy. I had to repair a tire a while back and had to use a engine hoist to remove those weights to get to tire. I've never heard of wheel weights for these tractors until I got this one and was wondering if anyone else has.

I too had weights on the rear wheels. It was a good thing i decided to take them off because the carrige bolts holden them on were almost rusted in two. my jack was not working when i removed them so i had to use the old lever system and hope for the best. It worked but these things were 292#'s a piece. Doesnt leave quite as deep of furrows when i cruise across the yard now, but also doesn't hold the ground as good when im blading snow.

If'n you have a "snow blade" on the front of your "N" like mine used to be, then the weights will diffinately help. I hate to put chains on the old "N". Used to plow snow on an airport runway all night long. Just me and the "N".

Never had to put the chains on the airplane, either. :) :)

Various styles of cast iron wheel weights were made for N series tractors. They are not uncommon.

Mike.......yep, wheel weights are heavy. so is the corrosive water inside the leaky innertubes. Rear wheel weight is sometimes desireable for additional traction while PLOWING. You don't need weights for general tractoring, like brushhoggin'. Sometimes you need rear weights to balance the loads in yer front end loader and lighten steering 'cuz less weights on front tires. Used iron wheel weights are generally about $1-lb. TIP: iff'n that tire starts to tip-over, GITT OUTTA THE WAY!!! ......the tippsy Dell
