Cockshutt 570 Weight

Is there anyway we can get a 570 cockshutt in the 5,000lb class? Guys tell me to cut off the weight on the front tub but not really wanting to do that. Would a narrow front with aluminum wheels get it done and stripping everything else? Also would a narrow front off a 40 or 50 fit? Thanks any suggestions would be great!

Custom frame is the only way to get it down to 5000.

Ours seems to run better heavier as well. However 5th gear can only take so much power and weight, before somthing gives.....

It's aweful hard to do without losing the cast front of the frame. The last stock one we had was pretty light with a narrow front end and it just made #5500. If you run without fenders and weight brackets and have a skinny driver you may get there. Alum. rims may help.

We had a Cockshutt 50 in the 4500 years ago. 34" deep treads on heavy steel rear wheels. Cut down narrow front with aluminum fronts. Aluminum dash, top rearend cover and pto plate. No cutting on frame. A 570 would not be far off of the 50. Maybe a hundred pounds more in engine and different front frame. The 40 or 50 front end will bolt right up. Hope this helps. Jeff

Why would you want to. I pull one in 8000-9000-10,000. The more weight you pile on the better it pulls.
