Hello Tom , Ford only listed the Light Duty 30 lb pie weights for the Row Crops because of the weakness of the rear end assembly not because of the PA rims and most manure loaders only lift about 1000 lbs because of the front axle which also very weak . These are only AG tractors they are not designed to weighted very heavy nor were there any heavy loaders made for them , that's why Ford built Industrial tractors for big loaders and heavy rear axles designed to carry lots of weight . I do not understand why these questions keep coming up , it says right in the OWNERS MANUAL not to use the heavy wheel weights and as you said you believe you read it , Do you think Ford set these standards just to fill a book ? Just like when Ford says a particular loader needs 3000 , 4000 , or 5000 lbs of counterweight on the back of a tractor to make it work effectively for LIFTING and TRACTION yet guys will post over and over that their tractor does work well when using the loader but then say they have no weight on the back because they don't want to be bothered by loading the rear tires or to have a block on concrete on the three point hitch . There is plenty of Owners Manuals out there especially for Ford and for just about every implement Ford ever made wether it is original or a reprint and Ford ALWAYS said what to use or not to use . Thanks Tony

Tony, Just mainly looking to add the weight for traction for the back blade and snow. If anything, it might see a bush hog on it someday for some mowing on the food plots.
