Homemade tractor weight

fender keeps skid steer cleaner

Tractor weights can be expensive to purchase and cumbersome to attach. Stuart Meier of Rademacher Dairy in Sun Prairie, Wis., created this tractor weight using a 4,000-pound concrete block he purchased for about $25. A piece of 6-inch by 1/2-inch steel attaches it to the three-point tractor hitch. Besides those few supplies, it just took half a day of cutting and welding to create this inexpensive tractor weight. It is great for adding weight to the tractor while packing their bunker silos.
