I have a Ď53 John Deere 40 Standard that Iím looking to pull with. I made up some wheelie bars but not sure how to mount weights. How do you guys put weights on the rear of your tractor? Thanks! Greg

Will try to post a picture of my 435. It is the same as a 420 utility. Final drives are pointed strait back. I used short pieces of 1/4 x 3 bar stock. They are bolted to the bull gear covers with just 2-3/8 grade 8 bolts. I have 4 of these that would hold 2 each 90 lb. AC weights or 3-60 lb weights. Plus another angle iron welded to the drawbar. Which will hold 4 more 90lb weights or 6- 60 lb weights. I can pull 5000 lb but rear end won't take it. Or the engine. So quit at 4500. I also have a middle bar. Just 1/4 by 4 with a small angle iron welded to the back. Oh the steel is cold roll. Available everywhere. Hope this helps. Vic

Notice the hitch adjuster is not attached to the wheelie bars. The wheelie bars are 1" square tubing.
