rear weight 1520 jd

Terry Haley Any suggestions for rear weight for my 1520 to
counterbalance loader? Previous owner of tractor
had filled rear tires ( removed when installed new tire) and wheels already show some corrosion from that so I would rather not go that route again. thanks for suggestions.

Leonard Hey Terry, I have used everything from Rocks on my carryall to hanging railroad iron on my lift arms. The best thing I have found is the fluid in the tires. I also do not like the rust out condition you can get from this but it can be avoided. Most of the tire shops in the past used "Calcium Chloride" Very corrosive! What we learned to use is Anti Freeze. Ethylene Glycol in a 50% mix is a good replacement for the old calcium based product. Your rust problem is greatly reduced. Factory wheel weights are also available and do help some. I have also seen guys who make a concrete counterbalance that attaches to the three point lift.
