Different tractors vari a lot to how much weight is needed on the front, e.g., puma 200cvx here on 4m sulky combi use 1200kg but the fendt 724 needs closer to 2t to balance it out, also have a mounted fert spreader that holds 4.2t so needs a fair lump up front but obviously nose heavy when empty

There's generally an extra 3/4 ton of decoration compared to what's actually needed going by everyone round here :ROFLMAO:
On Friday I passed a lad with forward facing strobes on the mudguards, weight block and top of the cab, broad daylight and he had nothing on the back of the tractor! It was actually more difficult to see passed him

On my Agriweld box above there are only the chevron stickers, no lights

the multi box on the front, was only £230 ish extra, handy for fencing etc, can handle a deed sheep too!
Link box would do same job with a lot less weight.

I was told that I needed a ton weight as that's what the dealer sold. 800 kg we have and it rarely used.
Valtras we have had are really well balanced.
Weight is only needed for ploughing, buckraking and topping steep
