Weights under seat?

Postby sscubs » Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:10 pm

So I have a 64 cub lo boy an while putting the fast hitch on I've noticed four round plates that are mounted on the bottom of the tractor. Are these just extra weight for pushing snow?

They aren't factory installed so it would be hard to determine why a PO would have mounted them.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I've seen lot of Cubs with extra weight in the seat :lol:

I don't have a clue what the "four round plates" you have are. How about some pictures or a more detailed description?

Looks like some type of wheel weights, how wide are they? Any chance of a picture showing the bottom?
If you are not part of the solution,

Isn't that where you keep 'em when you're not using 'em?
