Shiftable Front-End Weights
Spencer has designed a sliding weight rack that shifts a set of weights forward as needed to increase the weight load up front without adding more weights.
The weight rack consists of a bolt-on metal frame made from tube steel and angle iron that can be adapted to any tractor. A standard weight rack is attached to the front of the bolt-on frame and two small dia. cylinders move it in and out a maximum of about 4 ft. The cylinders are connected to and run off one auxiliary valve. As the tractor weights more forward, they magnify the offsetting down-ward effect.
