The 4 pieces with the "tongue" will go into the current counterweight and the pin will go through and hold all these plates on! Yes, it was their idea not mine I just do what I am told. Do I think it's safe, no, but what do I know???
If it's tipping it's met the weight limit of the carriage, the lift cylinder will give out.

Sure will, I'm lucky to still be in one of the last active fields. They've stopped stacking rigs so were just maintaining the best we can at this point. Starting to look up tho

working on some gun mounts that you can use either a Mongolian PKM or a Czech 249
Got in this morning and they needed 2 spindle but sockets made in a hurry so I threw these together and the boys I work with "nationals" welded them before I could cut out the 3/4 for the ratchet. It's only 8am and already in the 80's today's gonna be a hot one.

We have guys around my work that do this routinly. Mostly auto dismantlers hauling vehicles. Ripping up and down the street carrying cars. Guess thay dont want to take a nose dive if they have to slam on the breaks.

Some of the guys have what looks to be factory weights sitting on the rear. Cast steel and color matched, etc
