everyone sees every post.
This is a later style front bumper - was
"correct" for the Hundred Series tractors.
You could add up to four 80 lb bumper
weights to go on them but this setup is
much harder to find than front wheel
Notice the gussets or brackets that angle
back from the top - part #6.
They go to the back side of your axle and
bolt on with the same bolt that attaches
the bumper to the axle.
Those little gussets really stiffen the
bumper and make it capable of carrying a
lot more weight.
A guy could fab up a pair of these quite
easily and add them to your N style
bumper. Then you could add a one or even
two more suitcase weights if you
wanted/needed to.
Some may think it would add too much
weight to your front end but it would
still be far less weight than a loader
would add.
Suitcase weights are relatively easy to
find too.
Have fun moving snow. I don't mind that,
in fact I enjoy it.
We are way down on snowfall here this
year. Only had to plow one time.

Thanks, that definitely looks like a viable option to build. Suitcase weights are definitely the easiest things to find too.

I don't mind moving the snow either, I like being outside even when it's cold out. We've had about an average amount of snow so far. We got some in October, a lot in November, hardly any in December and a fair amount so far in January.
