Re: Pretty neat little hive moving lift!!! Europeans have the coolest toys!!
So as designed it is not stable. Moving the operators position would help. In this case I would not remove counter balance weight because the vehicle is not stable in the first place.

For what you have right now with the ride on mower deck it might be helpful to mount a pallet roller on the front of the forks so if the vehicle tips the rollers will prevent the forks from digging into the ground or tipping too far.
Good luck with your next project. The zero turn mower will have all the counter balance you need and that better viewing angle.
