We recently bought a JD 3520 w/ 300 loader and filled rear tires. This is plenty of rear weight as long as we are just moving compost, and sawdust. We moved some rocks the other day that were nowhere near big enough to tax the loader and tried to go down a hill. It was difficult because the hill involves going down it and transversing at the same time. On the way down the rear tire came off the ground and I thought for sure it was going to roll into the woods. Luckily I skidded down the rest of the hill just fine, this was a wake up call.
Does anyone know of any rear weights that:
1. Are cheap
2. Won't interfere with the 3- point
3. don't take away from the appearance of the machine.
Also, I have noticed that the rear tires on this tractor are extremely skinny and they don't keep the center of gravity low on the tractor very well. I would think that they would put wider tires on it like I have seen on the Kubota's and make it alot safer.
