Rear Counter Weight

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the counterweight in the Ebay/auction forum and was wondering why not just put a rod/pipe in the sleeve hitch, get two weight collars and weights from the local sales and use that for a counterweight. Cheap, adjustable, removable. Think it would work?

guys What i did for my counterweight was to get a 6inch or so diameter of steel pipe cut it to a foot or beter in leingth, fill it with hydrolic cement. At 1 end i put a large 1/2 in x 12in threaded rod, and at the other end i got a piece of 1in dia steel rod and welded it to the larger pipe. The 1in rod fits into the sleve hitch on the rear of the tractor, the threaded rod is where i can stack on extra weight if needed.
