    Default Wheel Weights, wow what difference!

    I bought some used 75 lb wheel weights for $35 ea, wow what a difference they make, especially with the Johnny Bucket loaded, but it even rides way better over bumps and such. Great investment!

    I've just started to stop excercising and have more malts for lunch. Seems to work as well ;-)

    What is the HP and type of tranny on your machine? Interested in the same thing for the wife...

    Mine is a GT5000 and has a Hydro-Gear G700 for ground engaging equipment, a 26 H.P. B&S V twin with overhead valves. Horsepower was never an issue, but traction was and still is but to a much lesser degree.

    But I get leadass solution as well but it wasn't enough in my case so I got the weights!
