2210 w/ FEL. How much rear weight is good and how does it mount?

I need to level and finish grade around a pole barn. The barn was put up last year, so the surrounding ground is hard and pretty heavy with weeds. After I knock down the weeds, what's the best implement to use to grade/level? Box blade?

This is a relative guess, since I haven't seen the property, but you will need to loosen that dirt so it can be moved around. One way might be to rent, or if you own, a 4' rear tiller and just go around the building until it looks like loam. These units can really a tiller. Alternatively, you might get a 4' box blade and angle the teeth down without (this can be simply adjusted with the top arm) pulling soil with the box and break up all the soil and then raise the teeth and allow the box blade to work.

Your owners manual should have some hard numbers to guide you on the matter of ballast.

A good rule of thumb is to add to the rear what you have on the front. I.E.: the weight of the loader assembly plus the weight of the load (dirt weighs 90-100 pounds per cu. foot).

I like a combination of wheel weights and 3 point ballast. You can factor in your own weight as part of the rear ballast equation as you do add weight in the right area.

That said, a good heavy duty box scraper and a some wheel weights will probably do the trick.

I plan on getting a box scraper anyway. Do you think box scraper could hold enough ballast (dirt) to counter the loaded FEL?

A box scraper really doesn't hold dirt - when you raise it up any dirt it's moving falls out. I suppose you could get some bags of sand and stack them on top of the scraper to add weight though.

Yeah.. that does make sense. Guess I'll pick up a 3ph ballast box and fill it with sand or dirt. Thanks.

Weight is weight. There's something to be said for spending the ballast box money on a useful implement like pallet forks or a carry all and stacking extra weight on them when ballast is needed. You could also use these to move heavy stuff around when you don't need the extra ballast. This might be something to think about.

What's a carry all? (guessing it's just a box that hooks to the 3ph?) Is that a dealer item or a Tractor Supply part?

It's usually just a flat platform with a back that goes on the 3-point to carry stuff around. Picture a set of pallet forks with a piece of plywood on it. I got one from Borgford, but there are similar products available from other places. We don't have TSCs around here so I'm not sure what they have.
