    I prefer the HH product but I can't really articulate the reason. I already had the Front Attaching Support so between that and the Tractor Time with Time coupon code (TTWT) it was a good deal. I also live close enough to pick up the items so that helped too.
    Thanks,

    There's another option from Heavy Hitch that offers more flexibility. HH sells a front receiver for the 1 Series and an 8-weight rack that plugs into it. This makes it very easy to remove the rack when you don't need it. You can use the weight rack on a 2" receiver on the back of the tractor to add ballast there when you need it. You can also use the front receiver to move a trailer, install a winch, etc.

    Both products are on this page.

    For a pictorial, please see the thread Flexible Ballast.

    When I was going to purchase more suitcase weights, I noticed that Lowe's carried the identical weight for about $15 per weight less than the dealer. I mentioned this to the dealer and they matched Lowe's price. This might save you some bucks.

    The front bracket holds 5 weights without you having to buy anything. Though if you have that little quick hitch lip you'll have to remove it. This is how you put them on without messing up the grill:

    I have the jd bracket that holds 7 weights. It attaches wit 2 bolts. Needs to be removed to install front hitch or loader.

    The heavy hitch is probably the better option as if Iím not mistaken it holds 8 weights and goes on and off without tools. Iíve been thinking of upgrading to the heavy hitch myself.

    Suitcase weights for front of 1025 R

    The above YouTube video is exactly what I do. It even works with the loader if you forget them or need even more front weight.

    I am a huge heavy hitch fan, but I was worried the heavy hitch front weight bracket would interfere with the bucket, so Iím sticking with the stock setup. Just did some lawn aerating and garden tilling with 5 weights up front I believe and worked great, left the loader arms just took off the bucket.
