A LA340 loader for the B2420 has 350 KG weight capacity. So the front axle can handle that. So anything between 100 and 350 kg should work. Have you tried to water fill the front tires, that may be all you need.

Hi B
The problem I have is not the front axle but the fact that I have 230kg on the back and with the additional weight on the nose ...... I am told I could split the tractor.Therefore I am trying to find out with this combination what is the maximum weight I can put on the nose?Tim
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

I don't see tractor splitting! Adding weight to the front is no more harmful than having a front loader on the same tractor. Add weight equivalent to your wife!
