    Barbell weights anyone?

    Any of y'all have this rig or know more about it than meets the eye?
    I find it pretty dang interesting, most specially for a COB like me.
    Who knows what COB stands for.

    I have a 1025R

    I'd like it better if the weight were lower, but still it's a good DIY rear ballast and great way to re-source an old weight set, just get the weight lower and it's

    The cover photo shows it mounted on the top receiver.
    It can also be mounted in the lower position.

    If you click on the "more images" at bottom of photo, you'll see more examples.

    There's a GTT member only about 20 miles north of me that utilized barbells. In think he goes by pickupman. Great resource until you can afford something else.

    My ears were burning......
    Lol
    I have since moved up a little. Omni has a competitor to the heavy hitch and mine is outfitted with 8 42# weights. With quick hitch Iím over 400#. Not bad. But not yet ďthereĒ. This setup is newer to me but seems to help a lot. However. I havenít given up my free weights. I use a curling bar mounted on a Clevis in the hitch of my weight rack. Iím easily over 500# at that point. Going to come in handy when I take off my THIRD Silverado truck bed. Living in Ohio means you canít be a Chevy guy....or you can but you better paint you frame yearly!

    8 more years and Iíll be super duty shopping!

    Jd forever we should meet up sometime!

    I can relate to that... My ballast box is loaded with a mix of sand, exercise machine weight plates and rotors. Enough weight that if I try to pick it up without the loader on the front, the front end gets awfully light..

    I've used barbell weights and old rotors for ballast for years.

    Barbell fits the rear quick hitch using it for ballast when I'm using front blade or front snowblower.

    When using the rear tiller, barbell fits on the curved lip for the quick hitch connection.
