    I built a weight bracket for my Cub Cadet 2284,, The Cub Cadet uses a latch to hold the mower frame, I used that latch to hold the weight bracket in place.

    I think I ended up adding a bolt on each side, because there was already threads in the frame,,

    Those weights look exactly like my deere weights. I got 10 no logo Deere weights for about $22.00 per weight then got a few other goodies thrown in on the deal. Guy was selling off everything prepping to sell the land. I could have got a lot of good building material if I’d have know to bring a trailer.

    That looks good. My tractor it a rust bucket atm “like all my tractors” but it’ll get the job done.

    I built this bracket a long time ago.

    1200 # hanging on this one but it will accommodate more.

    IIRC these are about 42# each so no more than 250# with weights bracket and receiver. Now make an evil grin cause I could always add more with the receiver i also have the 30+# front deere 8" wheel weights but for for some stupid reason these front wheels I pulled from a recently acquired dead and cracked fram 318 did not have holes in the wheels. Unheard of lol . The 318 engine is in this 316 untull i get the 318 whipped into shape. Hydro leaks galore and cracked frame = this 316 tractor would take less time to get the 30 Hydro tiller working to till my lawn. Good engine and new tires= worth the cost paid for whole dead 318 deere

    It wont kill the axle but it'll kill me trying to steer it w/o power steering :/

    This is my passion and hobby. I love these little tractors. Some had back hoe's and post hole diggers, though those are very rare finds and usually bug $$$ when for sale unless someone is selling something and din't know what they have.


    This was a dead on a storage lot deere with 800 hours on it. Plenty of life left in it

    Easy fix. Add more weight to the BACK

    I drove it around today and couldn't even tell there was all the extra weight up front.

    I have a 30 hydro on the back. This is the main reason I am building the weight bracket. User manual says to add 2 weights to the front to keep front wheels planted on the ground when tilling. This is the exact same tiller pictured on that 216 manual gearbox tractor you posted. Those tillers sell for decent money to the right buyers. $1000+. I got mine for $75.00 I had to replace the pump pulley, hi psi line and repair the suction line. Then put new oil and filter on the tiller. I think I have less than $400 invested into the tiller so far. Thats a guesstimate. Could be less i don't remember what I paid for all the parts.

    Cut off a square 3/8” peg for the single brake pedal stop and added forward and reverse stopps for dual brake pedals I am installing from a 318. Then I cut out the opening in the front 3/8” plate on the suitcase weight bracket for the tow hitch receiver. Ran out of daylight so that put an end to my progress for the day.

    I also needed a 5/8” rod to span the width of the front bracket but did not have one long enough on hand from my scrap pile of scrapped craftsman lawn tractors so I glued two pieces together. I also took some waste plugs from some 1/4” hole saw cut outs I made a couple years ago when I was making steering wheel puller grabber thingies. Had to drill them to 5/8” then grind them smooth to give the button appearance and feel. Good enough for my pay grade lol.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Repair to an aluminum alloy sprayer tank. The last time I got a guy that welded aluminum full time to patch it, he used a lot of loud words. Plan B went into effect with a thorough cleaning using a light pass with a grinder, wire wheel followed by a bath with acetone and compressed air. Root pass involved a skim coat of JB worked into the pinholes (no cracks or I would have made the local boy curse some more) with a 1" metal putty knife at 0 volts. That was allowed to dry overnight and followed with a 2nd pass of the wire brush to remove "slag" and a 2nd wipe with acetone and compressed air. I didn't use a weave on the 2nd pass.... I still think it's purdy...

    Doctors can't be trusted. They can't bill the medical system if there's no pulse.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Welded in the receiver hitch so I can get the pin / gussets welded in. Taking a beer brake to let it cool before welding the gussets in. I was a liitle puzzled earlier when I was cutting the gussets with my plasma cutter and the cuts were not going all the way through. I tried to cut one twice then changed my consumables and before trying again for a 3rd time, I realized I did not have the work piece ground clamped on as it was still not even plugged into the machine :/ oh yeah I also forgot to drill out the 5/8" pin hole before welding it up. Doh! Slaps forehead. :/

    Gee Ma, I'd build that to tow 15000 LBS, even so, it'd be overkill. I love it! Keep up the fail proof work.

    What the gussets look like all shaped and smoothed out
    I would not put so much effort into making it look good if this was only for a single use on one tractor but this fits the front of all my 20+ garden tractors and it'll be super easy to mount up or take off when done so I'm taking my sweet Texas time building it and enjoying every minute of it. I'm also learning a lot along the way.

    It was mentioned that I'm over building it. It's the only way I know how . Besides if I ever got a plasma table I'd be set for making these things by the dozens with ease.

    Oh yeah I welded every possible seam so there will be no place moisture can accumulate and streak rust down the paint from a joint that was not welded out. It's getting close to being done. Still need to get the spring loaded 5/8" pins in the mail so I can weld those on and then I also have to make a couple more button style 1/4" washers for the pegs that get welded to the bottom.

    I just realized the receiver will drool rust and there is not much I can do about it. Maybe toss it in the media blaster and clean it up a bit. I have not used it since forever and then there is a softail classic parked in the way :/
