Bulldog 285 FEL Arm Problem
I have a Bulldog 285 mounted on an Iseki 1700FD Tractor. What happened is that the loader support arms going to the front loader mount have flexed and bent under load. And not much of a load at that. They seem to be a thin gauge steel bent in a U shape. They are welded to the rear upright and bolted to a 3/8 inch plate that attachs with a bolt through a flex coupler. Going from the rear to the front the arms had a twist of about 30 degrees to mate with the front mount. Can I redo the front mount to make it parallel to the rear and replace the sheet metal with something stronger?
