Re: Ballast Box
I had some fun for my 420 with 44 loader I built a hitch with an18$ draw bar from northern and some angle iron then a upright link of angle iron.
Then, now the funny stuff starts, I took it apart, put appropriate holes in a black Square type rubber garbage can cut down in hight and put the hitchback together in the garbage can. Then filled with quickcrete. 6 80 lb bags. I figure I am close to 500 lbs. picks it up no problem and wow can I move snow or dirt.
Works good, Need to get some JD stickers to mark it look better
My two cents
