Recommended Posts

Does any one have any ideas on how to make a weight holder, one for the front and one for the rear. Would really like it to hold weightlifting weights(would go on a B-110) any way to make it also make it move for a counter wieght for tiller, deck, or a snowblower/blade??? Thanks for your help!!! I am new at all of this creative thinking. :):) BKASSULKE

An extra long shaft in the rear lift with barbell weights on works fine for counter weight against the front. On the front for the tiller, use your front blade mount without the blade. Put a long bolt or rod through the hole where the plow mounts to slide the weights onto, then shorten your lift rod so the mount cant hit the ground. Quick dirty and cheap :D:D

Why not make a plate with hooks that grab the front axel and bolt through the attach points? On it put a hinged pipe sized with the same id as the rear sleeve. Put a tab on it to attach a link rod to lift handle. Then take a rod that will fit sleeve hitch but locking collers and weights on it. Mount front part as needed and move weights as needed too.

I have a real nice front weight tray, it'll hold many weights, and is made to hook up with clevis pins just like any other Simp or AC attachment for the front of the tractor. Unfortunately I can't post a pic because I haven't paid my ten dollars yet. Did i mention I lost my job last May? Well, thats my excuse. BK, email me directly, and I'll send you a pic. It's a nice design. Terry9@cox.net
