They were an option. My 44 diesel special, 33 rc and a 44 has them.
In some ways they are nice cause you have the 300 pounds on each axel with out adding tire balast or wheel weights. Is also easier I think to remove just the wheel with out the center to get work done on a tire.

OK I didn't get the pictures the next day. Was a crappy week to get any thing done really.
Here they are tought.

On a 44


This is one of the ones that were mounted on some stamped steel wheels as wheel weights. They weigh in the 300 pound range I was told.

Thanks for posting the pics! Kinda funny though, I was to an auction sale on saturday, and there was a 44 rowcrop there with cast centers. I've got 2 44 rowcrops, both with stamped steel centers
