API Engineering launch APIMASS front-hitch balance weights.

API are pleased to announce the launch of our new range of APIMASS modular front-hitch balance weights for agricultural tractors.

Tractor balance weights are typically an unsightly addition to a tractor’s exterior with harsh lines and a poor surface finish.

APIMASS weights are designed to complement the modern design of tractors on the market today.

Our innovatively shaped balance weights are available in a wide variety of sizes, colour and coupling options. The weight is clamped to the front hitch housing so that no modification of the vehicle structure is required.

The APIMASS is a compact counterbalance weight allowing the weight to spread evenly over both axles.

The vacuum casting process we use ensures superior smooth surface finish and high dimensional accuracy.


“Quick and easy weight assembly”
