    I picked up my Erskine blower today and it weighs 900 plus.
    Do you guys have ballast on your toolcat to help with the weight?
    Thanks Mike

    Yes I do use a counter weight. The first Toolcat arrive the first week of December last year and there was not much time to get "fancy" with a counter weight. I used approx. 600 lbs of sand (in bags) inside of garbage bags and duct taped shut, which work very well for last year. This year I had more time to get ready and have two large pieces of steel mounted/bolted in frame work in the bed.

    Hopw this helps.
