It's a great idea.  Do you have any weight in the rear to counter the weight of the water?  My rear tires are liquid filled and I have a ballast box when using my forks for heavy stuff.

Yep. Loaded tires and 5’ bush hog (500lb) on the 3pt. I’ve carried 2 filled 55gal barrels on a pallet without issue and could definitely handle more. Since I had to keep the loader higher up with this setup, I was cautious driving down our hill and had it in 4wd, but the rear didn’t lighten up as much as I thought it might.

Water is not That heavy.  Crushed granite is about 2-1/2 times as much per cubic foot, if I'm remembering that right.

When I put new tires on the back of the John Deere, they sucked 55 gallons of fluid out of each tire, and put it back in the new ones.

Well this morning I put a $7k cashiers check through the wash, so starting out strong. :angry:

I'd be careful about how you approach the rest of the day.:unsure:

After 42 years of shooting trap I got my first 25 straight :)

 

That is pretty cool.  Congratulations.

I had a neighbor that got me into trap shooting back in the early 80's.  I got 18 birds on my first try and never cam close to that again.  Gave it up after a couple of years because of a growing family and we moved out the area.

Not familiar competitive trap shooting. Are you allowed just one shot per target?
