  • I have loaded logs, branches or rocks onto my 5 ft.brush hog to lift and haul away. The limiting factor is the front wheels coming off the ground.

  • My old and rusty 5 foot cutter weighs well over 600 pounds. The lifts on my 8N and 2N have no trouble picking it up, and the center of that weight is several feet back from the lift arms. It has been said, and I have occasionally proved, that the limiting factor is when the front wheels come off the ground. My Neighbor often went out to the pasture carrying a round hay bail on the back of an 8N. I thought that was more than it would carry, but he proved me wrong.

  • Perfect hydraulics are good for 1000 pounds, but front end of tractor gets light.

  • Tractor Data says 800 pounds.
    I always figured 600 for mine.
