I had someone comment that it may have been a county or state mower in its previous life (since its only a 4 speed and doesnt have live PTO). If so, that much weight could make sense. I'm just mowing pastures so I prefer to get rid of the maintenance aspect of the weights and calcium.

There's really no need for front weights even if I come across a 6ft shredder is there? The plan is to fab a front bumper to save my sheet metal against saplings. I can add weight to that if I really need it.

Thelumberwagon,
I have a Ford 4600, I just added a weight bracket and 4 suitcase weights to the front of it.
I am running a 6 foot hog (Woods Cadet 72). I also have CA-CL in the rear wheels which are 16.9 x 30.

I was having trouble with the front coming off the ground when I started to turn up a hill. Especially if I was raising the hog.

I can guarantee you if you raise a brush hog and pop the clutch at the same time, you can get the fronts off the ground!

I would NOT be quick to get rid of the weights. You may just regret it.
YMMV
