    Default Building SS Quick attach latch "HELP WANTED"

    Trying to understand how the latch assembly works, copying the bobcat style. I don't know how to build it or how the spring keeps force on the latch pin. Any help or pictures would be great. I see lots of people making this style of latch.

    I was finally able to complete the quick attach for the bucket which I retro fitted and forks I built, THANK YOU Tractobynet and all others who I copied from. Now I hope it all holds together this was the first real project I welded of any value. I'll post a few pictures and maybe it might help someone else down the road. Forks came from ATV express with slide plates

    Some pictures of bucket, cut off tractor mounts I wanted to mount everything as close as possible, to save bucket power, it's a small tractor. The bucket mount plates where cut from a mount plate from ATV express, I thought I needed to start to shave some weight parts are starting to get heavy as pieced it together.

    I am planning on doing the same thing to my bucket, I was looking at the JD style on locking it, they just use a dowel thru the bracket and then a pin. what do you think of that style?

    Looks really good, let us know how it all works for you. Should hold up nice, and you will really like having it. I have found that it has been one of the best additions to my tractor.

    KTM010: In Post # 5, the last picture shows one side of the bucket side of the Q/A. Can I make one suggestion? I would run a piece of 1" strip, or angle iron vertically on the inside, similar to the way it is on the outside. I did a conversion on my tractor & bucket 3 years ago & just ran into a problem with the bracket on my bucket. The very top weld where the q/a first meets & curls into the bracket started to pull apart. I repaired the weld & reinforced both sides with a piece of angle iron on mine. Just a head's up.. It can be a weak spot.. Now to beef up the one on my snowplow.. I'm gonna need more orange paint!
