 JD4100 Wheel Weights

I have a JD4100 with 410 loader. I have the ballast box attached filled with sand. The manual says that I need 6 rear wheel weights in addition to the ballast box, at least that is how I read it. I plan on using the loader to remove snow for the winter and thought that the rear wheel weights would be enough ballast without the ballast box. The ballast box extends beyond the 3 pt. and is not desireable for tight spaces. I asked the dealership about buying wheel weights and they said they are 60 pounds each, don't recommend more than two per axle, and cost $95 each! I think the dealer or the manual made a mistake about how many weights you need on each wheel or maybe they are talking about different size wheel weights. Even if I could afford it, I refuse to spend $400 or $600 for wheel weights. Does anyone know what the cost of having the tires filled with liquid would be? Will the constant weight of liquid filled tires cause lawn damage? With wheel weights I can install and uninstall them as needed but liquid filled tires are there year around.

Larry:

I have a JD 445 and use "suitcase" weights when I need extra weight on
the back. They fit into a holder that attaches to the 3-point hitch.
They weigh about 40 lbs each, and the "holder" will hold six of them.
I don't remember what they cost, but don't think they are too expensive.
They "stick out" that far in the back. I don't know whether or not
they have a "holder" for the 4100, but don't know why the one I use on
my 445 won't work. You might want to check this out.
