My guess is road grader, the part above the plow center of grader.
That's an interesting idea. I can't picture one in my mind, it's been a long time since I was standing that close to a Road Grader. Do you have an image?

Well, i think you are right, i just googled off with "Tractor counter weight" and i got these images they all looks like the thing you posted in here, take a look over it hope i am not wrong again...
That doesn't look like it either. Did you enlarge the last image I posted? It shows it with a tape measure on top.

OoOps, i am sorry, i didn't enlarged that image and if had done that i wouldn't post other pics, well after enlarging i come to know how actually it does look like so obviously i am wrong, well i am still wondering what it is, so when you find it out don't forget to tell everybody over here...

I went looking everywhere I could think of and found nothing that really came close to this, now I'm thinking maybe a spacer behind the water pump on a very large engine.
It would be nice if we could read the foundry markings that are covered with dirt.
Maybe this is the peice the alien ufo's are looking for.

If they find it, I hope they will tell us what it is before blasting off again.

I tried the four numbers on the right side. 8A80 I believe. Didn't come up with anything. Can't read the others. Maybe she can clean them off and tell us what they are.

Your right, if I stare at it long enough and squint it becomes a 23A8 instead of 28A8. But then again...

The trick is to move the picture to my pictures so you can inlarge and rotate it but we need the stuff, I wonder what the other side looks like.

I thinks it is a wheel weight off a tractor...
They sure have enough different types of them and they all look kinda close...

I think you have it Redwood. That's the best resemblance I've seen so far. I don't know who the lady got to lift that up for her, but I agree, turning it over might help a bit.
