    Just ordered me a new ballast box as it was on sale an comes with a built in reciever hitch on the bottom ,comes with the hitch but not the ball. fits on my 3 point hitch, this tractor needs lots of weight on the rear,so I have to load it down with something good,would like to get at least 800lb in the box.my uncle has about 20 bags of 7 1/2 hard shot he wants to sell me that I wanted to buy anyway an figuring that would be 500lb ,I would throw them in an something else for weight till I use it reloading shells.

    Frank,
    I loaded all 4 tires with fluid and it made a HUGE difference in the way it handled equipment. Really sticks it to the ground.

    I thought about that as my dad alway filled all 4 tires on our log skidders an what a difference. I,m thinking of going to turf tires later so will make do with the box for now.

    That,s what the other tractor I looked at had in the tires. I read it don,t hurt the rims but does a job on the valve stems eating them up inside making them leak. nothing perfect I guess :oops: I wanted more weight farther back so I could pickup more weight as this tractor is rated to lift quite abit. It,s not cheap anymore to fill tires:eek:

    Some guys use Antifreeze. There's a tire shop here that'll send a truck right to your tractor and fill your tires on the spot, for a decent fee of coarse.
