I've read various threads for both of these, but I added (on order actually) an offset Heavy Hitch to my goodies for my 1025R. I'll be using 70# weights as the 42# weights are no different then my sand filled box I have now. I'm sure there are readers that are thinking why not fill it with Portland (it's a one shot deal) or bricks of some sort to adjust the weight. I'm lazy and didn't want to load and unload the box when ever the front end loading requirements changed and didn't want to drag around unneeded weight. I felt using the Heavy Hitch with suit case weights allowed me to very simply (Not lean into the box and pry bricks out) add or delete weight as the job required (using the fel if needed) or drop the whole system off (I have an iMatch setup) and add weights as needed for the front mount. I have a FEL, but there are times when it's in the way and I'd like to drop it off. It seem to me a win/win however an expense one. Versility and my old age seemed to point me to this setup.
Thoughts and comments more then welcome
