I"m thinking about changing my planter tractor from my 4430 to the 4455. quicker hydraulics,better seat,PS over QR. Anyway my Black Machine planter is light on the hitch. I have 5 Z-weights on each side of the 4430 and would like to know if they will fit the '55. I pulled the planter with the'55 a year ago to finish up and it needed some weight. Thank you to all who reply

Yup, they should bolt right up. You'll need to take them all off to get the longer bolts that hold on the first weight. Best part is I doubt you'll need all 5 as the 4455 should be considerably heavier right out the gate.

I'd come over and help you, but I have a thing going on this afternoon... Smile

The Z weights will not fit because of the different style rear wheels. My 4255 doesn't have rack & pinion rear wheels and the Z weights I had wouldn't fit and I'm fairly confident 4455 rear wheels are the same.

I'll accede to TX Jim's comment and retract mine. He's more likely to be right than I am.

Tex were the Z weights changed when the 4440's came out to a bigger center? I was told once that the 4440 and bigger tractors needed the latter weights with the bigger centers. Our one 3020 has a set of the bigger center weights on it.

It's been many years since I installed weights on a tractor but I think I installed Z weights on 4440's at the JD dealership where I worked. I know for a fact that the 4240 that I traded in on the 4255 had Z weights on it. Those are the weights I tried to install on my 4255.

I looked in 4440 parts catalog but it showed different weights than the Z weights.

As Jim stated, they won't fit. But not because you may or may not have rack and pinion rear wheels, but because Deere changed the castings for the rear wheels, to make them heavier. Rack and pinion was available on all 55 series tractors...

There was an option or serial number break for R&P rear wheels on 55 series tractors.
