I am assuming you have the heavy castings.Putting on inside weights is a job that requires the correct equiptment to be done safely and efficently.I have seen heavy weights on the outside and depending on wheel setting they arent any wider than the axle.Weights as you describe sell cheaply at consignment auctions as not many people use them.I bought a 4630 that had wheat weights on the inside and out and It seemed like a dog until we removed them.

We have a John Deere 630 20 foot disk with harrow, 24-foot John Deere field culivator, and a John Deere 714 9-shank chisel plow. We have a 4640 that didn't have any rear weights and it would slip with the JD 630 disk behind it. After we weighted it down using the 1,500 lbs weights that took care of the problem. The tractor will actually work the engine now. We took the 4640 to a local shop to have the wheel weights put on due to the amount of work. I just am not sure if the 1,500 is overkill, or more than I should put on the tractor. I will admit I was suprised the differance it made on the 4640, but that is a lot bigger tractor all around, and seems to handle the extra weight with no issue.

1500# weights on your 4440 is NOT overkill especially since you have a loader on the tractor.
