    Fixed it for you.


    I'd put as much as you can in it. There are tons of threads (no pun intended) about this if you look around a bit.

    Don't know exactly but i believe the backhoe to be 610 lbs and I was told by the dealer and so far it seems right, that as long as the hoe is on no ballast needed. Might be different with the ballast box on account of distance out the back ??
    I'm sure some one here can tell you exactly or if you do a search its likley been discussed before and probably at great length.

    I made a hitch frame inside of a 31 gal metal trash can and filled it with 470 lbs of concrete. I have $58 and about 2 hours of time in the whole thing.

    Not enough weight. Check your loader manual, it gives all the weight and ballast recommendations.

    There is a valuable resource in the Technical Library:

    Edit to add: seems the 1 series is not included in this document.

    More information here about ballast:

    Plenty of weight for what I am doing and I already had everything.
