Not exactly a 'tractor item' but something that I have been thinking about ever since I got the forklift.

I always thought it would be nice to weigh things like the tillers, snowcasters, etc. and this will do it :D :D :D

 

One reason I 'pulled the trigger' on it is that I'm working with a fella in the UK on getting a really nice 1962 600 shipped over to him.  One of the things that they want is the weight of the crate, and I'll be able to do that with the scale.

That's pretty cool! I could see that being useful in the garage.

Good idea. I don't think weighing a tractor on bathroom scales one tire at a time would be very accurate.  That's what I would have to do.

Get 4 of the cheapies and do all 4 corners at the same time. I put the tires on a 4x4 in the center of the scale to get a more accurate reading.
