Dual purpose weight box

Recommended Posts

After a year's hiatus,I dug out my 2110 Landlord,to prep it for winter. I copied this idea from a 700 series Landlord I saw in a tractor boneyard.

It does a few things. It gives me needed weight in the back.It uses a car battery that would be sitting all winter(it's from my boat),and it eliminates the small battery,which seem to give up after a year or so. I welded the box together,and then bolted it on,so I can go back to original if I choose.Made sure the rear lift clears OK. Now I just gotta remember it's back there!8D

Great idea. Now I know what to do with the good battery that came with my parts tractor. It will keep it charged up so it doesn't freeze. And what a convenient jump mobile. I live on a lake. Hmmmm, wonder if I could rig up a 12v ice auger and a pull behind mini shanty? I could move to wherever they're bitin. Too much fun and not enough time. Can't wait til retirement!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
