After seeing the new post with the weights I got to thinking about the fact that I needed to do something for my machine in the extra counterbalance weight dept. So I started looking around the place. I had some weights that my son used for his body building days which were gathering dust. I had some 1" bar stock laying around needing a home. I thought I could use the attachment bracket off of the plow that came with the machine to provide a convenient way to attach some weights to the front. In the rear the 1" tube for the tiller attachment point would act as a rear point to put some weight in the rear. So I got busy today and put it all together. The pictures I hope will suffice to tell the story adequately.
I know, they don't look as good as the original ones but I'm using this tractor to do work. I'm I find a set of originals I will snatch them up. This set up allows me to fine tune if I need too.
