Default ATV plow weight

I need to add weight to My atv plow. its designed with a concerte block sized tray on the top, concrete blocks are too light and are hard to transport. I was thinking of welding 2 rebar rods on the top and stack some barbell type weights on the rods,that way I could add and remove weight as needed and the weights would be easier to transport and tote around..what do yall think?
BTW, does anyone have any old weights laying around?

plastic 55gal barrel with water at 8.345 pounds per gallon you could regulate your weight from zero to 450 lbs and when you're done.. drain the barrel

Been there and done that. I had some rods welded to the back of mine and slid weights onto the rods. I eventually slung the weight around making sharp turns etc. that the weight ripped off my welded rods

I added a weight rack to mine and got 300 pounds of old elevator weights to stack in it. We welded all thread handles to the weights for loading and unloading....this thing will cut concrete.

Build you a form the same size as the block and pour it full of concrete. Stick a "C" shaped piece of rebar in the top of the wet concrete for a handle.

I've used a log before. I like the barrel idea, just sounds time consuming

That's a good idea Duff.

Fill the blocks with concrete, or better yet, Lead!
