Hopefully the newly designed AGCO part does the trick, but I did finally find someone making replacements out of aluminum. If you're no longer in warranty these seem like a much better bet.

This was an unheard of problem for the previous generation of GC tractor. The backhoe numbering has not changed as the CB65 name continues, but it's obvious the redesign was not better.

Hopefully AGCO address this and maybe goes back to a proven design.

The new BH2720 has addressed this issue

Is that price for 2 plates?

Floppyness is usually caused by the nut coming loose underneath the lever plate. It's threaded on the bottom of the piece that holds the stud for the control stick heim joint. I had to fix mine. It failed the first real time I used my backhoe. I have a 2018.

Is that nut under the pivot plate that we are talking about in this thread?

Mine does look different then the broken ones, all three posts that come up through the pivot plate are round?

Thoughts, loose or broke?
