Easy to assemble and put on the tractor. I put a couple more weights on for the snowblower and it definitely improved the traction. I've only used it twice so far, but I could tell the difference. Only problem was they forgot to include the hardware pack in the box. My only options were to order a replacement part or return everything for a new product. Both of those options would take more then a week to get back to me, and I wasn't going to wait around with a lot of snow coming. I decided it would be easier just to pick up a bunch of bolts and do it myself.

Perfect fit for my 2016 Cub Cadet and it helps keep traction when turning on hills. I may buy another weight to give it even better traction. It can hold up to 3 weights, and they are heavy enough to aid traction. If you have hills to mow, a great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Troybilt Bronco I have a snowblower attached to my lawn tractor. Even with chains the rear wheels couldn't get enough traction and the snow blower tended to dig in. After I added the suitcase weights both issues were resolved. The bracket was easy to attach.
