Yes there is. 2 advantages really.

1 is that you don't have to lift the weights as high off the ground to hang them.

The other is thatwhen you have the weights low to the ground, they can be 11 feet forward, but actually be a little more than 11 feet from the axle due to the angle. As the front of the tractor lifts and the weights move in line with the axle, they move forward, helping controll front end lift. Depending on how high your rear axle is, and how close to the ground your weights are, the front weights can move forward 2-3 inches.

It also helps to lower the front of ur tractor on my john deere 730 diesel i run 6.00/12sl tires and i chopped 4 inches out of the post and it dropped the top of my weigts down a little over 6inches below the center line of the rear axle and i use 18.4/38s it made a heck of a difference it looks meian as hell but it workes for me i also have my weight bracket that its 11feetpossible from center line of rear axle to end of weights iv never had the front end come up past the point where the tractor is straight and i dont use much more than 1000lbs on the front even when I've run it up in the 12500 lb class on heavy sticky clay tracks
