After 65inches of snow in a few days, my horse keeps getting stuck with the blower.  I’m wondering if the 12in wheel weights sold by craftsman or other manufacturers are compatible with my standard rear wheels on my c161.  Will the holes line up?  Thanks and Happy New Year!

What am I missing?  Ain’t the holes much closer together than what is required?

I right there with you @Horse's ass

I'm in North East and we have about 8 more inches today with lots more in the forecast!  Just crazy...

As for your question, all I have to offer is that my weighs are off a 2005 husqvarna garden tractor.  Sorry not much help.

Ed's right, we are going to need pictures. You definitely sparked my interest when you said C-161. Is it an automatic or an 8-speed? Briggs twin or kohler single cylinder? I know this doesn't help your wheel weight problem but we love pictures of Wheel Horses here. I would verify the bolt pattern before ordering crapsman weights. Someone here may have a set of the concrete filled plastic weights to sell you for a reasonable price. If you're looking for period correct cast iron weights they do come up for sale occasionally but they usually go for around $200-250! Good luck, oh did I mention pictures?!!

@Horse's ass    Just about any garden tractor wheel weight made for the common 12" rims will work.

You folks in the North East have my sympathy having to deal with all that snow.

 

Oh, and :text-welcomeconfetti: to :rs:

:WRS:      In addition to wheel weights you can fill your rear tires with RV antifreeze. There are threads on here showing ho it is done. the amount you need depends on tire size. Take a look at this chart.

 SIZE                 GALLONS                WEIGHT in POUNDS

  • 16x6.50-8               2.0                            21.4
  • 18x7.00-8               3.0                            32.1 
  • 18x8.50-8               3.4                            36.4 
  • 18x9.50-8               4.0                            42.8

The filled plastic weights will fit your Horse. You can make some wheel weights using brake drums with concrete fill. :handgestures-thumbupright:

      Up for grabs is a super 44" 2 Stage Snowblower, with ALL the hardware to install. I will include Wheel weights, and a nice set of chains too. I believe it was bought new in 1997, the owner was elderly a wee bit older than me..... and unsure of when he got it. The Tractor was a 1990 that it was on.It fits 300-400-500 Series Wheel Horse Models. The numbers on the blower are in the pictures. I enclosed a few pictures, and I have rotated the entire assembly.. Please ask questions, I will be more than happy to assist you. The unit is complete, and is very tight. Last used in 2014 he expressed to me.

      I have a 42" Snow Blower for Sale.  Includes the lift tube and flag.  This was used most recently on a 1979 C-161, but it will work on many other models.  I used it for over 10 years here in Michigan and never had a problem clearing my drive way, even in the worst conditions that we ever had.  The wheel weights were made by Wheel Horse as well and have the company logo on them.  Also included are tire chains and the carriage bolts to attach the weights.
       
      Hopefully somebody in this community has a use for this.  I no longer have the space to store it or a tractor to put it on..
