    The dealer here has replaced the rear bumper with a heavier counter weight on some machines. Not sure if they fabed it or if it came from CASE. If you need more specific info PM me and I will put you in contact with someone with the answers.

    Man, I think you guys are too critical about Mow King's counterweight setup. I think it is one of the more good, creative ideas I have seen in a long time. Cheap to buy, cheap to construct and easy to use. And your arse would not be too heavy simply because if you are not lifting very heavy items on the front, you simply remove some/all of the free weights from the back. Bravo! I love the idea and may implement something like that on mine...

    Well, maybe your right and it is a pretty good idea, but it wouldn't work on a Deere or New Holland anyway due to the boom designs. Oh well.
