Counterweights
Counterweights add balance to the tractor when used with mounted attachments and allows the operator to easily lift and turn the tractor at the end of the rows.  A front counterweight was available as an option for rear mounted attachments.

A better front counterweight for hitch and saddle implements can be built that is easily adjustable, as each attachment actually requires a different weight for  balance and  to prevent operator fatigue.
The spike harrow needs 10#, plow and disk harrow 20# and the culti-packer 30#.
