Of course if you put too much bead, that is what they make grinders for. So for 10 minutes of welding, your slop problem is gone.. if it comes back as the welds wear down then break out the welder and grinder, and have at it again. Problem solved for couple bucks rod and electricity.

    Thanks, I'm not all that familiar with JD, but it does look like he has too much slop for comfort.

    On pic 3, I'm not sure how much play should be there, but the gap seems awfully big.........that holds the top or your bucket to the QA.

    It does seem like a lot of clearance doesn't? I would think it would fit tighter, some grease on the adapter once in a while would help a bit on wear.

    Before I do this, I have to investigate a bit more.

    ....this is why I ask, cause it's getting a little to much for my comfort

    I am surprised at how much slop there is under the bucket hooks.Makes me wonder if they got bent somehow, just don't know how you could bend them s long as the bottom lynch pin is in place on the bucket. I have over 4000 hrs on my tractor (JD4300) split between the bucket and a couple of different sets of forks/lifting brackets. Lot of digging and rock work, but only half the slop that you have. I have the steel, rather than the newer cast brackets and mine have bent a bit as well.
    I can't see how you could have your bucket come unhooked the way the other style (SkidSteer) does but if you like, you could try to bend those hooks back down with a big hammer. If you fill the space with weld, you might also harden them and make them brittle....

    Thanks for stopping by. I'm not that familiar with JD stuff, but, I knew the amount of slop appeared excessive.

    I remembered seeing a couple threads on here about QA's coming apart, but couldn't remember the brand, nor could I find the threads.

    Yes.....brittle...that's what i would think would happen too.

    I think what i need to do is go to a JD dealer and get some measurement of the hook and the bar the hook goes over and see from there i guess?

    I thank everyone greatly so far in helping me with this issue

    Im going to look and or study the whole attachment really good tomorrow since i worked today.

    Your welcome. And yes, that would be a great idea to go to the dealer with a rule and check some measurements.

    Good Luck, and keep us informed.

    It maybe a few days, or into nest week, but I will update when I check at dealer.

    ...in the mean time, I'll check back here to see if anyone else has jumped in with any suggestions.
