Adding weight to tractor wheels is often important, particularly when operating non-powered soil-working attachments. Better traction improves performance and safety.
Wheel Weights are required to operate the Moldboard (Bottom) Plows, Root Digger, and other applications in which the tractor weight is insufficient to perform the intended application of the attachment.
There are three Wheel Weight options based on wheel size:
- Add 48 pounds (24 per wheel) to 8" wheels (standard wheel size for models 620, 710, 718)
- Add 66 pounds (33 per wheel) to 10'' wheels (standard wheel size for models 722, 732, 739)
- Add 150 pounds (75 per wheel) to 12'' wheels (standard wheel size for models 852/853, 749, 750, 770)
150-pound Wheel Weights (75 lbs each) and 12'' wheels are recommended to operate the Moldboard Plows.
Wheel Extensions are recommended along with with Wheel Weights.
BCS also offers a more economical alternative to Wheel Weights: Wheel Weight Barbell Hangers.
For additional weight to improve traction, also consider Foam-Filled Tires.
