    This depends on the dryness of the soil. If it is nice and moist, you don't need anything on the Classen/Lesco unit. When it is dryer, I have used up to 300 lbs. of additional weight.

    I have mine set up so the wheels act as guage wheels. I can have 300 lbs on it and when I get to a soft area, it still will only go into the ground at 2", 3", or 4" depending one what I have it set at.
