Ok Im thinking about building a front weight box on my 4720 tractor. Done a little looking around trying to find ideas. I run a deeptine aerator on the back of my tractor. It weights 2200 pounds +-. I have about 475 pounds on the front of the tractor now in weights. Was bouncing around the idea of making a front water box for the front.
I know water is 8 pounds per gallons. So 60 gallons would get me to 500 pounds. It would be great to not have to haul that extra weight from job to job. Thought I could just fill it at each job from there hose. 2" pipe on top with cap and 2" pipe and cap to drop it after. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Wondering if its worth the hassle. Anyplace online to use for calculations on size and weight of the steel i should use? Figured i throw it out in here.
