    What make/size garden tractor is it? Does it have a three point hitch? My first thought would be no, but without knowing about the tractor it is hard to tell. Most ballast boxes are used to counter the weight of a loader. If it is snow that you are worried about, I think chains & the person riding it would be enough.
