    Yep, they are ballast weights to compensate for when the front end loader is on. It also has a 450 lb weight box that hooks up to the 3-point hitch to help counter weight.

    Yea I'm thinking of bolting a couple angle iron brackets in or maybe a 2x4. I'll have to look at it better and see. I'll post pics of what I come up with.

    It actually bent back pretty easy. A few jumps onto the hitch and you could barely tell, other than the flared crease where it buckled. Def can't hold any weight yet though

    Don't think I'll have to worry about the trailer breaking again!
