    If you are a little talented and want to save a few bucks make your own. I made one for my Toro WB from a 35#lead weight I got from a plumber. I used a flat bar to mount it to, painted it all Toro red.

    Ive seen a few guys down here in Fla take a piece of pvc pipe and fill it with cement and c-clamp it to the yokes.

    They say that if you dont need it, it only takes a few secs to remove --- and when you do its right there.

    Call Atherton Rd. first, and get a price from them, then call Richfield Iron Works (Richfield Rd.) and get a price on some pieces of flat stock, say around 3" wide, 1/4" thick, by however long they would need to be to overlap a little bit - laying across your caster arms. You could just use some large U bolts and two smaller strips (drill the 2 holes in them for the bolts to go through) to attach them. You would only need around 3 or 4, I would imagine. This would probably be quite a bit cheaper. You would only be looking at about 10-15 bucks.
