Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeFront tires support the 800# front weight of the 8N tractor & my other tractor's FEL will lift my 8N by that OEM bumper. ....and I do not wish to argue up vs down.

It's not the static load but rather the dynamic load that will damage the bumper if the tractor is actually used.

I expect an OEM bumper can be severly damaged by bouncing through a furrow with 100 lbs. attached.

i'd call that a static load though. and a low duty cycle load at that.

Ie.. temp lifting or dragging by the bumper, vs a 'forever' weight hanging on it.

i know when i strap tie my 850 to my trailer I can actually make the bumper deflect downwards due to lever action on the front tounge.
again.. I have loaders on most of mine.. so have no shortage of front weight. my non loader units have chains usually wrapped around the bumper.. probably in the 100# range. i do know I have stood many times on my bumpers to reach things.

may be a good subject f a stress test for someone with a damaged oe bumper.. one that has no collector value.

laod it statically and then make that a dynamic load and drop the frotn tire into a bunch of gopher holes :) I bet the spindles sure wouldn't like it though.. ;)

i'm not arguing with ya either way.. just guestimating.. I've never put it to a test.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWell, there is certainly no question as to whether static or shock load will do the most harm. Loosely chain 500 # on it and hop a few ditches/furrows/etc. and analysis would show many times the actual 500# weight. Probably the case with the fellow and big flywheel tied on it.

that was exactly my thinking as well on the flywheel.
