Re: tractor w/loader
> if you had too much weight on the front it was 2wd and just spun it's tires and it was prone to lifting the back end a little , good thing there was wheel weights on it
If you have implements designed to go on the tractor's rear 3-point hitch, the weight of those implements will help offset the load on the front forks. A bush hog style mower will work for this, but a tradeoff is that with the mower mounted the tractor is longer and clearances are reduced. Or you can devise a way to mount to the 3-point hitch a steel barrel filled with concrete to act as a counterweight.
