    Default custom ballast box

    Here is the latest ballast box I just helped my dad make for his bobcat CT335. Fresh concrete and he said he is going to paint it black.

    Looks good, and I have never seen one like it with the .50 cal cans. Any idea how much it weighs?

    Be careful about ammo boxes and rust. They are very thin
