This is mounted to my HT-23 with a Johnson loader. It's a 4" piece of steel pipe, filled with lead ! It's heavy and it really does the trick, along with a set of wheel weights.

It came with a junker HT-23 that I bought about 3 years ago, that also came with a 2 stage snow blower. The guy made the weight rather then using a weight box.

Kinda neat, so I figured I'd share it with you guys.

A new coat of paint is on the list, I'm thinking Deere yellow. Lol NOT.

That's a neat weight. I used up most of my lead making wheel weights, but still have 50-60 lbs. around!

Where did you get your lead from?

I bet that would be handy to have with a draw bar hitch mounted to it ! I wouldn't need to use any down pressure to get the implements to dig in , Al

We do a bit of remodel work. I save the old lead shower pans and the lead drain lines when we replace them with plastic pipe.

That's almost like a rear bumper. A nice idea for a weight and not something I've seen before.
