It looks like I shook my mini hoe muck bucket a little too hard one time to many

This is the piece prepared to be installed and welded. A シ inch plate larger than the ripped out hole is welded to the ripped out piece to insure a good weld backing and to add structure.

Fit and slide it in place from the back side.

Pull it tight, and then from the back side smack it with a hammer to be sure it is up tight and in place.

How long from start to finish do you think it took you to complete the job? Just curious. Good job by the way.

Thanks guys. It took about 3 hours. Counting the preparation of the mount piece. Guess I can get back to cleaning that pond out today.

Looks good.. and stronger than the original.. now you know what to do with the other side when it rips out:laughing:

Hello Stray,

I noticed that the failure occurred on the side where you added some sort of red square tubing holder (just above the mount). Could it be possible that the custom work you did would have weakened the original mount...?

Glad nobody got hurt,
