Q: cub cadet enduro xt2 . do I need a weight kit using a berco snow plow. Are just chains suffient to plow with traction
by Ron Diotalevi from Connecticut on October 02, 2015

A: Ron - yes, the rear counter weight and tire chains are both recommended when using a snow plow blade with a Cub XT2 tractor. A lot really depends on the terrain of your property, and how heavy the snow fall is, but both the rear weight and the tire chains are necessary in most instances.

Q: If I put a snow plow on cub cadet lxt 1046 how much weight do I need?
by Carl from Kentucky on November 09, 2013

A: Carl - counter weights are not really required with the use of a plow blade on the Cub Cadet tractors. The rear weight carrier and suitcase weights are really only needed when using a front mount snow blower attachment. If you feel better using the rear weight carrier with a plow blade, then the one 42 lb weight that comes with the carrier should be plenty.

Well Made, Not Sufficient Weight.
Very easy to assemble, the bracket iv well made. The provided weight will not be sufficient if you have heavy winters. I had to purchase one extra, still have to add one more for the next season (I'm 210 lbs)

Better Than I Expected
I have been shopping for wheel weights for my new Cub Cadet, and was only able to find the suitcase weight kit. Having never used this system before I wasn't real enthused about it. Couple that with the fact that the bracket kit looks like it is a little on the flimsy side.

I was surprised at the quality of the bracket kit. It is heavy duty, and far exceeds my expectations.

Assembly is simple, bolt together, at the kitchen counter, easy.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
