That tractor won't get 2500 pounds not even 3 feet off the ground. We have an L3410 and lifting 1000 pounds 3 1/2 feet off the ground is crazy scary. Plus, the axle bearings will eventually break down and the cylinders and hydro system could fail with that kind of weight up in the air, very dangerous to "counterweight" a machine that was not designed to handle the load. Buy a forklift.
