I need to remove the front & rear wheels from the ST120 & put them on the 120. There are weights on one of them. I've never removed wheels from a tractor before, how do I best do this?

Apologies for such a basic question but I really have no idea and don't want to damage anything.

Thanks!

Gary

I can not believe no one has helped you on this. I'm sure your referring to jack placement. I have no Bolens lord knows there is enough of them on this site. So if your needing jack placement one of members will get with you on it for sure. Swell bunch the bolens guys help you out if they can.

The wheels are simply held on by a snap ring. All you need is a good set of snap ring pliers. The front wheels should slide right off easily. Just remove the dust cover and the snap ring and washer. The rear wheels are usually rusted in place to the axle shaft. Lots of PB blaster or Kroil and patience will likely be needed for the rear wheels. Basically the same as the front, remove the plastic dust cover, the snap ring and washer. The rear wheels are keyed to the axle shaft. The rear wheels can sometimes be difficult to break free.

Thanks for the replies. It looked clear that the covers had to come off but I tried pulling on them and they were loose but sure didn't want to release. Before prying them out with a screwdriver, I thought I'd ask first. If I can't use a hammer to get the rear wheels loose and I can't use heat of course, I'll use the Kroil as I have plenty but I'm wondering if there is any worthwhile trick to getting those rear wheels off?

The ST110 has weights on them and maybe I need to remove them first? It would be much easier to remove them after the wheel is off.

I need to check the brake pucks also, it stops but it glides to a stop, doesn't grip well. Looks like removing the left rear wheel first, would make it easier to access so I need to get this done.

Thanks again for the replies, they help.

the weights have 2 j bolts with nuts at the back of the wheel if you take them off first it will make wheel removal easier
