I have a weight box that I bought with my new and first Tractor a decade ago.

I was under the misguided opinion that it would be useful to me. In 10 years it sits in the shed never attached to the tractor even once. I use it to collect various odds and ends as it sits, thats all.

To be fair to the weight box I am sure it has its uses like using a loader in tight quarters. I just do not have that use where a usable rear implement would be preferred.

I have seen over the years many projects like 55 gallon drums full of concrete, etc..

Has the world moved on from weight ballast? And now all use implements for this purpose?

I think it is a combination of things.

10 to 20 years ago Baby Boomers were getting older but not too old and they were buying toys to help them as they aged.

Some had horses and stalls that could use a tractor in tight quarters, where other 3ph ballast would be too much in the way.

Others read all the ballast ideas and jumped in. Sounds like you.

Now the Baby Boomers are too old for all that stuff so you do not hear about it. But you still need ballast but it is just not a talking point. ....
