    Suitcase weight storage

    I have 6 weights for my x738 for snow plowing. How do you guys store the weights when not using them? I know heavy hitch makes a cart for $250. I was looking for cheaper options out there.

    I have the heavy hitch cart mainly to store my Heavy Hitch. For everything else I pretty much mod $20 furniture dollies from box stores. With a furniture Dollie and a couple of small pieces of 3/4 ply wood you could make a nice little cart. You cold als use some 2x4 lumber and a piece of metal strap. Still around $30 in materials and some fun labor,

    My wife had a standard answer for our two daughters when they could not find something,,,
    The scary part was,,, she was ALWAYS right.

    Typical question from the daughter;
    "Hey mom,, have you seen my cell phone?"

    Mom would answer;
    "It is on the floor, under the bed, or in the laundry!"

    Mom was ALWAYS right!!

    So, if you want to find the weights,,, put them on the floor,,
    your spouse will than be able to tell you where you left them,,,

    Hey Mom, have you seen my wallet??
    It is on the floor, under the bed,,,,, or in the laundry!!,,,

    The weights would fit under the bed,, but, should not go in the laundry,,,
