I have a set of what I guess you call pie weights that are on a 851 Ford utility. There are two that are missing. I think they weigh about 30# each. I don't need them and wondered if they are worth anything.

Whats a fair price to ask?

Thanks for any advice you are willing to share.

I got the same set from a farm auction last year. Am missing 2 weights (or is it 4, 2 per side, I forget?) but have both disks & the special mounting lug/studs.

Cost me $12.50.

You're a bandit! That just proves that it takes at least 2 people who want an item for it to sell for a decent price at an auction. If only one guy wants it, he gets it cheap!

Didn't they come in two sizes(or weights). Some had more gerth than others. Would that influence price? I did see a complete set sell at an auction for around $450. Kind of surprised me. I don't recall if they were the thick ones or the lighter.

There is a small set for the spinout rims and a larger for the regular rims. I would think the smaller ones would be a lot more valueable

I've had three different sizes which vary in weight and width and depth of the slices. 30#, 51/2 x 5 1/2 --40# 5 x 7 1/2, and 45# 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 I don't know if the power adjust and the ones for the 24" rims are the same.

Several years ago I was able to get a couple of sets at $500 a complete set. Now I would be glad to get another for $800 as I need another set. I am located in Wisconsin.

This complete set (800Lbs total) brought $850.00 at auction. The auctioneer told me that if I wanted any cash out of the weights that I should remove them from the tractor as they won't make the tractor bring any more when it sells. I promptly removed the weights and was real glad that I did. Dan Robertson

I just purchased a set of pie weights complete with lugs and mounting plates. I paid $425 which I think to be a fair price. I watched the advertisements on this website and found someone who was selling them within driving distance for me. The trick is to find some within driving distance to pick up.....shipping can be expensive. You're probably talking around 1,000 lbs to ship.

Good luck.

i've seen them go for $1 a lb used.. but you can NOT afford to ship them.. if all the weights were there,, you could get $390 a side including the center disc. then the lug adaptors, four requred for each side are about $14 BUCKS apiece at the dealer..

so $800 is not out of line.. not at all

on the other hand, I picked up a set for $200 minus the lug adaptors.. sometimes you run into good deals...

so if you can get from 200 to 800 depending on if you can find the right person... and close by..

good luck.. bill

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
