I have a 2000 with a Kelley loader on it. I would like to make a counter weight for the three point out of concrete. What would be a good weight and how much concrete (cu. yards)would it take? My idea is to weld a 3 pt frame then put a form around it to cast the concrete. Any opinions/advice?

FYI, Concrete weighs approx. 4000 lbs. per cubic yard, 148 lbs. per cubic foot or nearly 20 lbs per gallon.

If you hang it on the three point, you loose half the tractor. If you load the tires and add wheel weights, you can still put a blade or other implement on the back. Bone yards usually have used weights.
