I have come upon this group of weights. Not sure how to use them as yet. They are around 6.75" X 14.5" X 1.75" each and 12~ lbs. each. The 2 smaller black ones are 8~lbs & the red one is 12~ lbs. They have holes thru them that will fit a 1" bar. Close to 200 lbs all together.

For the front of a tractor, you could make an extended bumper with a flat plate with upright round bar or stout pipe.  Just slide on how many you need, eazy peezy.

That is good. Trying to figure out how to attach on the back of the FF for help in the snow! Can't go wide as they are wider than the lift arms. All 13 of them stacked are 22" tall and about 165~ lbs.

You gonna be using a rear blade?  If not, just build an A-frame for the 3 point with the same kind of plate with uprights out past the pins.

You will have no problem figuring out how to set them up on the back of the FF. Will definitely give some needed traction when pushing snow.

Good idea Daniel! I can take the sleeve hitch off this one and use the axle mounts for the bottom. Run something up to hook into the 'center link' hook up. Then build out from there.

Kenny, if you can use the 3 point to lift them then that's less work for you. Some sort of a hook that would pick them up and then a pin or 2 to keep them from moving once they are lifted by the hitch. Let the hitch do the lifting. It would make it super easy to add or take off the weight.

Always fairly easy to fab a weight box for front, rear or both, and drop them in, especially when working with a 3 point hitch.

The challenge is the FF's have one cylinder for all 3 lift points. Not sure I want that to be lifting this weight along with the blade. The 3-point is on the other tractor right now. I'll get something figured out, but I like all the suggestions thus far.

Can you not lift up the 3pt and lock it out with a pin?

I haven't seen anything to allow that. Thinking the situation over right now.

 

What are they made of, Kenny?

Plastic covered cement? i think, Will. They have three 1" holes thru them.

 

Those sure would look good bolted to the front end at a plow day, like a big tractor!!

If I can figure a good way to hang them. It would take 7 of these to equal the window weights I have up there right now.

If the 3pt lifts via a rod that runs to the mid-mount lift cylinder the lift rod should have a slot it in to allow the 3pt to float. If that is the case then you could ways lift the 3pt, pin it (if that is an option) or just chain it up.
