I put a 54 in blower on an x744 and i could definitely feel that some weight would benefit blowing. I priced my options through john deere, and it seems like the ballast box is the most affordable at 300 bucks. How much weight can these hold? I was thinkin maybe putting 2-3 sandbags in there. The suitcase weights get around 500 bucks with 4 weights so im leaning away from this. The other option is a 50 lb weight on each rear wheel. Can i add antifreeze into the tire as wel?? Im Unsure if just 100 lbs is enough? My blowing area is pretty flat, so tractions not a huge issue when it comes to hills. Also, can this weight stay on during mowing season or is this something i need to get off? Thanks again for all the help guys.
