I often need a shovel when I am working with gravel or dirt, and I got tired of having the shovel bounce out of the bucket or off the 3-point when travelling, so I finally got around to making a simple holder. I noticed the loader mounting arms had pre-drilled, unused holes on the back side: 25/64th... just right for 7/16 x 20 tapping.

I had some scrap steel items: 1 1/2" galv. steel pipe, a heavy dished washer with a hole in the center (from a suspension bushing, I'd guess) and a heavy steel U bracket that was just the right curvature to fit the pipe. Some cutting and welding, some primer and paint, and ta da. No more shovel on the lane problems.

Looks great. I firmly believe -- the better it looks, the better it works. :)
