Can anyone share how much moveable weight they gained by switching to weld on hubs?

lot of pullers go to weld on hubs to loose weight to get into lighter class

Depends which tractor you are talking about - there is a big range in hub weights. The weld on plate would be maybe 15 lbs? Personal preference would be Cap bros light weight hubs.

The primary reason for weld on hubs is the propensity of some brands to break hubs under heavy load. But then it best have been a good welder, as I have seen more welds fail on hubs than cast hubs that have failed.

Oliver 88. Just playing around with some ideas to get more moveable weight. Have 300 pounds in the 4500 right now.

Your factory hub is probably 35-40 lbs ea?

You could also do hollow axles.
