    Carry-All Ballast

    My Carry-All is my go-to implement. Let's my wife ride with me, carries my garden tools, chainsaw, chains, and edger. Great place to lay those limbs that are falling in the yard this spring. I made an additional frame last year to cradle brush I was removing and added a ball to pull the trailer. Swiss army implement for me.

    I have been using an 82# concrete block as ballast. I gets in the way when I want to load things. Got the grinder out and notched the 1/4" angle so I could add 4-42# suitcase weights. Really a good mod. I can add all 4 to the inside and get 192# of lift at the front wheels. If I turn them to the back, I get 220# of lift. With the 4 weights hanging out 6' from the rear wheel and the old 80# block, I can lift the front wheels off the ground with the loader on by bouncing the backend. I will need to get rid of the block and maybe 2 of the weights for most of what I do. The front is too light. I can add the extra weights easily now and not sacrifice any room.
