Just thought I would post to show the weight mount I had made for my 3000. Basically, the whole thing sits on the hitch. There are little tabs (circled in red in the first picture) that go under the tractor "frame" to keep the whole thing from tipping. The weights are about 45 pounds each so I have about 185 with the bracket. Anyone else have any other ideas? I'm thinking of a different method so I could six or even eight weights but I'm not sure if I "need" that or not?!
