Someone gave me these two weights and I've been wondering how I would use them. I wanted better traction when backing up my firewood roads with an empty carryall -- until there is room to go in frontwards and turn around at the top of the new road. Have to cut up the big felled Maples lying there first.

I like it when things serve a dual purpose and the Cutter height limiting chains that I made fit the bill.

I haven't tried hanging these two weights down the backside of the Carryall, but I will. anyway . . . this extra 100 pounds worked for me yesterday on the trial run.

These old barbell weights have tons of uses. Here's mine helping ballast my plow truck for snowplowing.

Jim,
That looks like about 520 pounds!
I'll have to keep collecting them. :)

Got one big Maple out of the way yesterday so I could get the Jube up the new road frontwards and have room to turn around at the top.

Looks like your not bashful when it comes to work :D

Yea, 521 lbs to be exact. Got one 25 lber at the far end of each of my trailer ramps too. After adding helper springs to the ramps, they wouldn't quite stay all the way down. Made it tough to load.
