    I have a John Deere 3120 with a 300CX loader.. What I would like to know is what you use for ballast on the rear... a ballast box? a box blade? mower? and also do you use rear wheel weights? Thanks for any suggestions..:)

    I would use a ballast box. You can get the most weight per square inch. You can add or subtract weight as needed if you fill it with rocks or bricks.

    Ballast box works best. Although, we hang an 8' Woods mower off the back of our Kubota L3410 when doing loader work. We're just that redneck :drinkup:
