I have a X738 with a cat 1 3pt hitch. Plus I have a heavy hitch attached to my 3pt hitch. I am currently using 8 - 42# suitcase weights on my heavy hitch. During the winter, I plan, actually hope, to use my blade more than my snowblower. My questions are theses:
1. Should I remove my suitcase weights between uses? (I wonder if this amount of weight is bad for the axle or something else while just sitting in my shed)
2. I do have a rear weight bracket that I am not using. I could remove my 3 pt hitch and heavy hitch and use my rear weight bracket if that would be recommended?
