    I built it out of scrap metal

    3/8 x 4 x 4" angle

    1/4 x 1.5 x 24" flat bar

    1/8 x 3 x 96" tubing

    1/4" mounting and lifting points

    1/4" chain to bucket

    All welded with 7018

    It can safely hold 800-1000 lbs at the lowest lug and 250 at the top lug

    What are you lifting there and what did it weigh from the looks of it it is very heavy.

    200 lbs of steel rigged at 9.5 ft from bucket pivot with the boom at a 45 degree angle. This is equivalent to 950 lbs at the pivot.

    At this height I could not lift, only curl.

    Here's me as the counterweight. The rear end was very light

    Ok from the picture it looked like a lot more weight.

    I know. I had a case 580 fill my pickup bed in two half scoops and my tractor took about 8 full buckets to unload it :-(

    Swick1 I'm looking to adapt a power angle snow plow onto my 2320 with 200CX loader. This Solenoid looks like the way to go to get hydraulics diverted to the power angle cylinder. Is it a 2 way pressure valve? If so I could just divert the bucket curl/dump fluid when needed to change the angle of the blade. That would work great. Or any other advice you may have.

    I had the Jd dealer cut the curl hose after I mounted the valve to the loader. They put new ends on it where they cut and hooked it up for me. I installed the two remote hoses myself. I made them out of repair fittings from discount hydraulics.com. they are frontier style disconnects but I would do flat face next time. Jd dealer had the covers for the hydraulic quick disconnects. I installed a foot pedal to switch between controlling bucket curl and the grapple. It works well but I had to make my own bracket to hold the switch. I love my diverter setup. I want to make some more implements that use the hydraulics like a stump puller and a shear / jaw crusher.
