Using Implement Codes

John Deere engineers have developed a code to determine how much front ballast is needed, for stability and steering control.

Implement codes for Rotary Disk Mowers are:

  • 265 Mower-54
  • 275 Mower-61
  • 285 Mower-70

Refer to chart to see how much front end weight is needed for implement when installed on tractor.

NOTE: If front tires contain liquid ballast, add 10 to code in chart. If tractor is equipped with a Quick-Coupler hitch, subtract 10 from code in chart.
