Hi I would like to be able to add suit case weights to the front when I pull my trailer but my bumper on my X500 won't take them I need the bumper off a X520/540 I asked about ordering that bumper but the hoods are diff. I was told there was a thread about this at one time and I have searched don't know if I'm not putting in the wrong key words or what. Has anyone treid this or see the thread about it? Thank you.

I guess they changed some things after ser# 30000 and that one won't work.

We have the technology, we can rebuild them, better, stronger, faster.........! How much different are the mounts than the earlier S/N models? Something that can be easily modified?

How big of a trailer are you pulling that you need weights on the front? My boat has about 150lb tounge weight 14" behind the rear axle and it doesn't even think about getting light in the front end.

I order that front weight/hitch plate last week (AM133952)

I will receive it sometimes this week so I will post a thread (with picture of course :D) on how to install it.:fing32:

Good luck, hope this helps you. I pull a 5'x10' utility trailer loaded with a face cord of oak and haven't seen any tendancy to push front wheels. My trailer is almost perfectly balanced, and I can usually chuck a chunk of fire wood to one end or the other to make it balanced. I often switch the trailer from tractor out of the woods to truck on driveway for delivery.

Did you buy your weights yet? If so how much were they from the Deere dealer if you don't mind me asking?
I have not gotten the weights yet I need to get the bumper on first.
