You’ve just invested quite a bit of money into your brand new John Deere tractor. An effective way to protect your tractor is through a ballast box. Our ballast box will aid in preventing your tractor from tipping over. It is designed to protect the integrity of your tractor’s front axle through the use of weighted implements. This ballast box improves traction by balancing and shifting the weight from your equipment’s weaker front end to its more solid rear end. It has been engineered to hold up to 800 lbs. of weight, so you can fill it with either concrete, sand, steel, gravel, or rocks. It has a sliding front door that allows you to easily empty the box and reduce weight when needed. You can also use the ballast box for tool storage. It can even hold your pair of integrated tube holders. This ballast box is made from heavy-duty 11-gauge steel for superior durability and strength, so it will last you for years to come. It is compatible with John Deere Category 1, 3 point tractors and skid steers and comes with all the necessary hardware for you to set it up.
NOTE: This ballast box is quick hitch compatible
