I am getting ready to spread 2 tons of pelletized lime. I have a 1025R, and will be using a Frontier SS1067B broascast spreader on my imatch hitch. I have removed my FELand the MMM. I have a Heavy Hitch front weight bracket, and I have 8- 42 lb weights available to use. The broadcast spreader holds 670 pounds. My tires are not fluid filled, and do not have wheel weights. I need advice about how much front weight to use.
To me the confusing part is that I will be starting with around 600 pounds of lime in the hopper, but as I spread the lime, the hopper weight will decrease to zero.
So, do I use front weights based on the full hopper, the empty hopper, or somewhere in the middle? And how much weight?
Thanks for any advice, or your own experience.
