I have a 52 JD A and would like a guess on weight.

Narrow front, rollamatic
Powertrol
12.4-38 rears with cast centers (likely to be switched to 14.9)
Lights, generator, air cleaner in place


Nebraska test for 1947 A with no added ballast is 5228 lbs with driver, I didn't know how much more a 52 is going to be. I would like to be 5300 lbs or less without me, to make 5500 lbs for a farm stock class.

my 52 weighs right around 5,550-5,575 with me (200) and all the weight brackets OFF, and that is with 16.9 tires...but everything else is the same as yours. hope that helps you with a close estimate; you should make 5500.
