Counterweight for Tractor GWT Hitch Hangers Bundle



Bundle Your Counterweight For Tractors

Tractors with front-end loaders need counterweight. Period. It’s a matter of your safety. Your owner’s manual will tell you how much weight you need.

In addition to safety, some 3-Point attachments benefit from extra weight to better engage the ground (like a Plugger), as a 3-Point Hitch doesn’t provide any downforce. Further yet, traction is a necessary part of efficient work, and part of the traction formula is weight to the rear tires.

If you use a SpeeCo E-Hitch Quick Hitch, we’ve created a weight bracket that holds six additional suitcase weights without blocking a rear attachment connection! We call it the Hitch Hanger and this bundle includes one pair of Hitch Hangers and six suitcase weights in either 41 or 70 lb each.

The Hitch Hanger is a weight bracket that attaches with a simple strap connection to your quick hitch, allowing you to hang three suitcase weights (41or 70 lb) off to the side, while still keeping the connection to your quick hitch and your three-point attachment.

How much counterweight do you need?

The answer to this is tractor specific, but your manual should indicate the recommended rear ballast or counterweight to balance against your front-end loader. This can be in the form of liquid ballast in you wheels, wheel weights, and the weight of the rear attachment itself. But often this is not enough weight to hit the manufacturer recommended total. Enter the hitch hanger, which provides a solution to gain that additional weight without increasing your footprint.


A 3-Pt Hitch does not product any down-pressure, so if you are running a ground engaging attachment you’re reliant upon the weight of that attachment for all of its digging power. This includes plows, discs, pluggers, aerators, tillers, and box-blades or graders. Some times the attachment will have a shelf for adding weight, but many do not. Using our Hitch Hangers is a great way to gain downward force for that attachment, providing better, faster results.
