suitcase weights

okay where is a good place to buy. and whats a good price per pound. i was told .30 cents per # is good. but new could cost a buck per pound. im thinkin i would prefer a skinny style weight so i can hang more to one side. any particular brand.

i have tried to buy used but most are all different styles weight etc and never enough of them . im lookin at gettin around 600 to 800#'s

also i know there are ways of hanging weight with the plow frame, frt mount winch bracket etc. is there a bracket specific for hanging weight for pick ups?

thanx

If I was lookin for weights I would try your local tractor dealership. The good ole IH suitcase weights are a favorite around here, fairly easy to make a bracket for them to hook on and most dealers have a few laying around.

It would be hit or miss as to wether or not the dealer would have enough or the same ones. You may have to go to several places until you get enough.

Another place would be a tractor boneyard if you could find one around.

Not sure on how to hang them to the plow frame though.

your best bet is to talk to a local farmmer that you are good friends with and just barrow weights for the weekend pull. otherwise you will be spending 100 bucks per weigh. also the easiest weights to hang are ih weights. i am not sure on your style of snowplow mount but i am sure it can be done.

White weights are super easy to make a rack for. Just use a piece of 1/2" or 5/8" steel plate by about 5" tall and your done.
