Nope, no weights, no chains. The rear blade gives me some weight and it sits a good 3' behind the tractor which gives leverage to the weight. (It also likes to scrape things like garage door trim when I'm not paying close attention:() Also, the steel cab weighs a good 250# which also adds to the weight. With the ag tires, i rarely spin. It surprises me too. The biggest weight problem, if any, is up front when side-plowing heavy snow and turning against the bank. That's where the individual brakes come in very handy.:D

How is the broom driven?
Terry, The broom is a 48" MB Broom made for a walk behind. I adapted it to the front of the tractor and ran a belt to the front PTO. Works really nice. Next I have to add a cylinder to raise/lower the broom cuz it's a pain getting off and turning the crank.
