    Default How much front weight should I need?

    I own an Iseki TS 2205 2wd tractor. When I put my 5' bush hog on the 3ph I loss control of my steering wheels, even if i put just the slightest lift on the mower.

    My question is would 125 pound be enough weight on the front end. My bush hog is not light weight but it isn't a heavy weight either. I would guess it weighs about 500 pounds. I can lift one corner by myself when I am mounting it on the 3ph.

    Thanks,

    Don Worrell

    Just add weight until you have enough. 125# may not be enough, by the way you describe how light the front end is now when picking up the mower. But it is a good amount to start with.
