I had a plate bent to hold 2 100 pound suitcase weights that hooked on the grill guard of my BX2660. Works well, just had 2 3/8 bolts tapped into the guard to hold it and used a ratchet strap to keep the weights in place. I no longer use it as I bought a bigger tractor to do what I was doing with the BX. You should be able to do something similar to hold whatever weights you are using.

Have a BX2350 need to put weights on the front end , I also have a grill guard. Do I need to remove the grill guard to put the weight bracket on or is there a work around ?
Photos or more info would be more helpful!

Excellent work around. Mount one of these then get the weight hitch bracket. Then add weights. Pricey but EASY.

I really like that set up.. looks like a really well thought out design.

After a second look is that a package deal or are they separate manufacturer's?

the brush guard is from "Earth & Turf" in New Holland PA, and the little bracket I just made from a steel scraps, its just a box that gives the 40lb weights something to grab onto. It was compact and worked well

Where did you get the weights? They are a lot nicer the front kubota weight I have, and look like they are shorter then the suitcase weights I currently have.

they are the standard 42 pound weights from deere, they keep them in stock, so you dont have to pay for shipping.
