I am currently looking at different ballast options for 1025R, such as the Heavy Hitch Offset bracket or the Heavy Hitch Dual Weight Bracket and suitcase weights.
1. I am curious what is the maximum weight you have used on the rear 3 point hitch and how much rear tire/wheel weight in lbs when using front attachments such as the FEL?
2. How much front ballast weight have you used for rear attachments?
I am trying to determine how much weight that I should buy. I know the loader owners manual states a recommended ballast weight, but I am curious if people have been using more or less weight then what is specified in the manual. I have been watching a lot of videos on Tractor Time with Tim and noticed many videos that he has used (8) 70 lbs weights on rear 3 point hitch and has weight on rear wheels and sometimes still has people standing on the ballast to lift heavy items.
