Finally got my 30 inch bushhog deck out . I was real light in the front when on the tractor. I had 3 pieces of lead that are probably 15 lbs a piece got them bolted on , now it handles great mowed down the garden and some brush around the edge of property

Nice :)

It looks like you've got a short-drive deck on a late model tractor. That combination was always light in the nose. I believe it was pretty standard to use two gravely weights on those.

+1 about how expensive those things are. Your fix looks like it will work great for much shorter money.

Yep there is a set of weights on Ebay now for $199 someone found those at work and brought them to me because they know I save lead . About a $1 worth of bolts,nuts and washers is my total cost
