Suitcase Weights for Compact Tractors



Suitcase Weights for John Deere Tractors

What most tractor owners don’t know until it’s too late is that in order to operate your Front End Loader safely at full capacity, you need counterweight on the rear. How much counterweight is model specific and can be found in your owner’s manual. Along with increasing safety, ballast weight or counterweight can increase your traction in mud, snow, and ice.

Good Works Tractors offers suitcase weights to hang on a weight bracket on your 3-Pt Hitch, slot into a front-mount bracket, or even to weigh down ground-engaging attachments like a Core Plugger.

John Deere suitcase weights are available in 41 lb or 70 lb

One of the best ways to use suitcase weights for tractors is with a weight bracket, though some ballast boxes can allow suitcase weights to hang off the top edge. Click here to shop weight brackets and suitcase weight bundles!

John Deere Suitcase Weight – Product Overview

Safety is critical, and many tractor operators aren’t familiar with the concept of counterweight. But if you run a front-end loader you should know that your tractor’s weight alone will not be enough to operate safely. Instead, you need to add weight to the rear of your tractor and one effect and compact way to accomplish this is to hang suitcase weights off of a weight bracket on your 3-Pt hitch.
