    Have you check to see how well the grapple fits? Any slack?

    I would sure check that grapple fit, from other threads on here, it is a fairly common, (and easily fixed) problem. or was it that your load was so unbalanced that caused this?. At any rate I would want to know the actual cause of the problem as it is liable to happen again.

    Replacing easily repaired parts such as this is wasteful. Changing parts requires no imagination or ingenuity, but is very often more profitable for the dealer.

    I disagree, as pristine as his tractor was, for 250 bucks, I would have done the same thing over having a cobbled up one.
    And I was a fabricator in a previous life, and still would have gone this route.

    Plus, not all people have the same talents

    I know you had different opinions on how to fix your problem, glad you went with getting a dealer to fix it properly. (see post #2 ) Spending some $ to get it back to new probably makes you feel better. If it was an older tractor I probably would have gone the fix it yourself route. Good thing is you also found a dealer you can work with in the future if needed.

    I highly doubt the bent one would be melted down, in any event. It will probably not be wasted. The only issue might be, whoever gets it might be paying for a new one and have no clue it was ever damaged. It would be called, "good business." Even at that, it could be repaired to better than spec. If that were the case, then I guess it would be, no harm, no foul.

    You mention Boone, but your profile says "Northeastern NC". I thought from the pics that terrain didn't look like the coastal plain
