Nice pictures, Love black and whites taken of cubs.
I had to look several times to see the extra weight myself, should work fine, here in the mountains of WVa we hang all sorts of stuff for weight.
I have a pipe filled with 100 lbs of melted lead that bolts to the front final drive holes for extra weight and strength.
Remember my brother and I riding many times of the front bolster of my dads JD-A for extra weight when Dad was in a pinch.
Again, really nice photos of your family and tractors.
