Recommended Posts

How many LBS. of rear counterweight is needed when using front loader on a powermax type tractor? This would be total extra weight including wheel weights, rear implement, or weight box etc. given the operator will weigh approx. 200lbs. Thank You

Jack, My rear weight box probably weighs close to 250 lbs with the solid concrete blocks in it. I seems to be sufficient, we have hauled a 400+ lb rock on the front forks with no problem.

A nice 4 foot box blade on the rear would be ideal as a rear weight. John U

Thank You John As always you are big help. Did you fabricate that nice looking box and weights? If you did make that box, I would love to see some closer photos of it's construction and mounting. Then I would have a good guide on building my own.

Beautiful setup you have there John! I cannot imagine how useful a Pmax loader would be. ;) Jack...any pics of your tractor? I just love those machines, and hope to add one some day.

I will not be taking delivery of my tractor until a few more weeks. When I receive it I will post some new pics. Until then please see link below, for some photos I posted of my purchase. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=121597 Thanks for the interest!

      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!😁
