Has anyone purchased suitcase weights for their BX? How much were they? I know weights are usually a $1 a pound but sometimes small weights are more.

On the Kubota Build Your Own site:

1 FRONT WEIGHT BOLT KIT$6.00
1 FRONT WEIGHT BRACKET$103.00
1 FRONT SUITCASE WEIGHT$71.00

I believe the weights are 55lb ea. but I'd call the local kubota dealer to confirm that.

4shorts, what is that on the rear of your tractor; or are you just backed up against it?

Tom gets the prize :laughing:

I did this for a customer a few years ago. It reappears at the shop once in awhile for service. Works well. The one technical issue I had was getting the 3pt arms to lift the resurfacer. I got around that by shortening the two lift arms 1.5". Once I did that it's was all perfect.

I wonder how much off retail the will do? I guess I will have to call the dealer and see. I can get these at Lowes but they are 12lbs lighter. I am going to make my own bracket so I can use the grill guard.

I just got some weights from Lowes

42lbs for $53 tax included. So $126 per lb.

Vs Kubota weights

55lbs for $71 ?? tax. So $1.29 per lb.

Are the weights stock items? Don't believe I've seen any at my local Lowes.
