Fed up of struggling to line up bolts and manhandle wheel weights into place.
Thinking of trying to design a telehandler mounted gadget to pick up the weights and be able to put them up to the tractor wheel and rotate into place. Has anyone done this already or got any ideas of the best way to go about it

That's basically what we've been doing up to now, but they need to be right on the very end of the tine so that the tine doesn't run into the hub first, then having to shuffle 205kg round and get them flat to the wheel pan so that the bolts go in, is not easy.

Mchale Soft hands will do the job, just need a rubber tyre taped to it to grip the wheel weight

Thinking of using an old stub axle was about as far as i'd got :sneaky:
Do you have any pictures of your rig up ?

That looks just the thing, although we might need a bigger roller as the centre of JD weight is bigger than the one in the picture

Yeah, that was the drive over one, were they an option for the 6R ? Haven’t heard much about them, maybe they didn’t catch on.
Have just found this though
