    well i have no knowlwdge or your particular machine but you say it broke at a weld, why not reweld it or take it to a welding shop and have them reweld it, most likely if it was welded in the first place then theres no reason it cant be rewelded with proper equipment and skill and be as strong if not stronger than it was before

    that is our step we are having to take to be able to continue to use the equipment.... that is the 2nd bracket that has broken in the same spot, and we havent even come close to approching the upper weight lift limit...i think the design of the bracket lets it bend and flex too much causing stress, and the 1st bracket we had welded bent due to the weld heat... we've contacted the ramrod people on a couple of occasions, but all they can (or will) do is send out another bracket , leaving us with a weeks downtime...... i think a thicker metal may help but that is up to the ramrods designers to correct....

    Why not take the bracket to a machine shop and have it beefed up? Any competent shop should be able to handle that.

    I almost did. I found that they were about 5000 overpriced for what they are.

    I suspect someday, they won't be able to give em away.
