I fabed a front weight bracket today. For years I never used any front weights with tiller and was always doing wheelies. Trying to keep front end on the ground this year. Used angle iron left over from a job site to hold cinder blocks. The only thing I’m worried about is clearance, only have 7” from ground to bottom of bracket. Anyone have any issues with 7” clearance on any of their front weight setups?

Update. final fab complete and tested yesterday and had no issues with clearance while tilling. Kept the front tire on the ground and was able to steer and no wheelies!! I’m happy tilling and not worried about falling backwards.

Probably fine if you never want to plow with it.

thanks for re-assurance. I was thinking it should be ok with tiller. I never have plowed with it nor do I intend to be plow. The tiller does a great job so that is the only time I would use the front weight bracket.

Most garden tractors other than the 400 series Cases only have around the 7” mark for ground clearance and they Plow fine. Most garden tractor Plow depth is around the 5” to 6” depth. Just my thoughts.
