    Well that's a good question! I have not weighed it but am sure it is less than 25#. I we take it off to paint and weigh it then, but not sure when that would be. I think the round bar probably weighs as much as the hooks together!

    I took it off to paint it today and weighed it up and it comes in at about 19 lbs. Even less than I thought!!!

    I couldn't wait for the warm weather so here it is with a coat of paint on it.
    I might get a second coat on it Monday.

    Here is the way I did mine. Yours looks alot nicer, but if they do the job that's all that counts. I don't have the tools that you could use. I used a drill press, chop saw, 4 1/2" grinder and a welder.
    The last picture I just had to show, Eddie has a pig and I have 2 turkeys on my heels when I let them out.

    Leejohn, I don't under the extra set of holes on the bucket. Do You use the original lower holes to line up the pins for the middle holes to pin it on?

    Here are some pics I took tonight after I re installed the QH, level indicator and fork frame after I painted them.

    I also installed the 36" forks I traded my 42" forks for.

    Yes the pin in the bucket is what I use to lock it all together. The bottom pin is for pushing and it helps also on it moving up and down. I'm using 3/4" pins in the bucket for when I back drag, hoping they are strong enough (seem to be right now).

    You are very correct Leejohn, if they work that's all that counts! I was going to make mine with a piece of rectangle tube and some flat plates but I liked this way a little better and since I had access to the press brake I made mine more like OEM kubota QH.

    You did a great job!!!... Having a "Quick Attach" on a FEL is great!!.. I think all tractors should come that way!.. IMHO!

    Now you can switch from your bucket to your forks QUICK!!

    Hello,
    I am starting a QH for my FEL.
    What thickness of steel did you use for the side plates?
    I cannot read the tape measure accurately.

    Thank you,
    Kenan

    600rider,
    Very nice work. This is the type of thing I like about TBN, a place where talent and similar interests come togther from people who would not otherwise meet.

    I was wondering if you had to modify the bucket at all, or just use the stock pins and locations.

    Keep up the good work..
