    Default Look what I did to my poor Loader bucket!!

    [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Just thought I would share with all of ya what I'm doing. I wanted a QA bucket on my CK30 but didn't want to spend the extra money. So I decided to build it.

    The first pic is what it looks like off the tractor and the back tabs with the pins cut off. Also just before I used the grinder to smooth things up.

    This is a lot of fun. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    the second picture is of the tabs with the spacer bar welded across the back. A shot of it before i ground it smooth. I welded the spacer bar on before I cut it off the bucket so that it would remain spaced the way it was on the bucket. worked out real good.

    a shot of the tabs and spacer as I'm doing the final welding. I didn't have time to take many more pictures but I added more strips along the curved part. for spacers and to fit up against the bucket.

    I was burning daylight. needed to get as much done as I could.

    Last picture of the Day. The QA attached to the loader arms. I have a few more things that I want to do to It but I wanted to see how it fit. Seems to fit and work nicely. I will post more pictures as I progress. Mark

    Holy mackerel, can you say "substantial"?
    I have the QA for my kubota loader and the ATI adapter for the bucket but have been progressing cowardly regarding cutting the pin ears off.
    Nice job, keep posting.
