I just received the front mount weight attachment for my Deere 1026R subcompact tractor. The blade is still on the tractor, so I won’t be using this for a few more weeks. But I can see that it neatly attaches to the tractor’s frame just like the quick-hitch mount.

Among a number of other chores up here, I use the tractor to mow a 30+º hillside in late summer. I usually use the loader with a few stones to counterbalance the Frontier RC2048, but you can’t get everywhere with the loader sticking out. I look forward to using this adapter with front weights for more flexibility mowing around boulders & such without dramatic and dangerous hillside maneuvering.

I’m pleased to see it is stout and heavy duty.
