My setup, 100lbs wheel weights + 250lbs suitcase weights in box.


I bet that gets around good. Do you use chains too?

I would fill the back tires with washer fluid and be done with it, I use loaded tires to mow and it doesn't hurt anything.

I do the same.  On steeper mow areas, the extra traction prevents wheel slip and subsequent burning, or digging up the grass.  On sidling mowing, the fluid ballast also gives a lot more stability.
