    Default Poor Man's Front Weight

    If you have a FEL, you can just lay a 55gl plastic barrel in the bucket and fill with water. Just keep the bucket tilted back, and if you drive like I do, you may want to wrap a chain around it. Amount of weight is easily adjustable by adding/draining. Water weighs approx 8lbs. per gallon. You do the math. Sure helps keep the front end down when using the backhoe. Also makes a great bumper when things jump out in front of you!

    As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

    If I would ever need front weight, I'd just go get a scoop of dirt...

    Easy come, Easy go!
