    I was wondering if anyone would ask that. When trying to hold grade moving dirt and you want to tip the edge of the bucket up it didn't have the power without stopping. My other tractors I can do that and keep the bucket from digging in.

    I'm also making it a QC so I can use my B7800 forks.

    Looks good. Are you keeping the original range of motion for the bucket (dump and curl) or making a modification there too? Looking forward to how you make the QA.

    Yes and maybe a hair more. I well not know for sure until I get the QC hooked up, it well move the bucket about 3" fwd.

    Got it all done today, just some touchup paint and make something to hold my pins. Dump and curl are about the same, might of got a little more curl. Tried it out and now when I tip the bucket edge down it goes down and can pull it back up while still moving fwd. The tip well lift the front up real easy. The brake out force is super, super good. Don't know how much lifting power I lost yet, because of the bucket moving about 4" fwd. I used 3/8" hose because the old cyl used them. I'm going to change to 1/4' and then I can use shorter hoses and well look a little better. The speed is enough that I think 1/4" well not slow it down to much.
