Sam....slow down, count to 10, and take a DEEP breath. 

 

There are a number of options available for you before you force me to make a road trip :D :D :D .

 

1. As already stated put a front blade, on it.  You could even get by with the hydro angle blade one if you don't hook it up to the outlets.  You will probably want the blade for backfilling anyway.  Shucks, if you have a snowcaster that would work too.

 

2. Put Rim Guard in the front tires.  The standard size front tires will hold very close to 35# each, which just happens to be the same as what the front wheel weights weigh, and will most likely cost less than front weights.  WW fluid would be a less desirable option as it weighs 3# less per gal. 

 

3. Fab up a mount on the front that will allow you to hang a couple of suitcase weights.  I know that there are GT sized ones available from Cub Cadet and John Deere.

Like OB said you could make something work till you find some front wheel weights.

Blade on the tractor is a must... You need something to back fill with......

 

P.S. You cant have my front wheel weights. :D

i am just so mad that the po of the trencher wont sell me his..  all he does with it is move his trailers around with it and he has a weight braked made up on his ht20. i offered him more then i think the weights are worth an he said no. so i might just sell the trencher an be done... might just sell all of what i have. it make me mad that people rather keep thing they dont use or need instead of selling them to someone that needs them i really dont get it.

If I recall correctly the original Bolens front wheel weights were solid center style, meaning you had to remove them to get at the wheel bearings. If it were me I'd fill the tires and make up a custom weight rack or something if you don't want to run a front blade.
On mine, when I need more weight than my washer fluid filled front tires give me, I just scoop up some dirt in the front loader bucket.

I don't have a trencher, but I often load the bucket up when running a tiller just to balance out the machine a bit. The bucket up front lets me have totally adjustable ballast and the ability to dump it when needed.

Sam

The guy who owns it says it's a model 14. That's what he told me a few weeks ago when I talked to him.

If I recall there were a few pics on here of that tractor under another post? The bucket was off and the loader was painted red?

 

If so that looks like a bail spike loader, its a model 12 TC or 14 TC, those had the rams mounted below the bucket for curling strength.

I think the reason is that most rams can push harder than they can pull back, meaning it was made for cutting in and curling upward at a higher load level.

 

I see more of those on JD machines than anything else. The loader will fit anything, the foot print of the loader is the same on all of them, only the mounts vary.


I emailed the seller for pics of the loader and its mounts. If your not interested I'm going to take a shot at it.

For me it don't make much difference how its mounted or attached, even if it had factory mounts I'd most likely remount it my way anyhow. Those factory mounts are hard on the frame rails. If I thought I had clearance, I'd run two supports off the rear axle and mount up the loader that way, as far back as I could. I also want to build my own bucket, I want a full 5" wide bucket with full depth. It'll help speed dealing with mulch and fertilizer here.

 

I was going to stop by there tonight but he was busy by the time I was free from work.

He said he won't be available until Sat or Sun.

 

The way I see it, no matter what the loader is, its still worth every penny of it, either to use or to trade for one I will use. I really could use that tiller, and a few extra tractors around here would never hurt.

 

I found these online:
