    3pt weight block.

    This is the ballast weight I built couple years ago. It works great for all heavy duty fel work,like big round bales,dirt,gravel and moving heavy pallets etc. Thinking about building another one with some type of storage space for chains,clevis,hooks and hitch pins. Has anyone else built a concrete ballast weight with storage? Looking for some ideas or suggestions!
