It made a Crop
I have a 135 (pto) hp 2wd that I'm setup to pull an 11 knife NH3 bar. This tractor's job for the past 25 year has been light drawbar work. I figure it's time for it to earn it's keep.
I'm adding adding about 1200 lbs to the rear wheels plus a set of cast center dual wheels. The NH3 bar will be a pull-type. How important is front weights on a heavy drawbar pull beyond keeping the front wheels steerable?
