    53 inch bucket mods

    As always I want to mention all the great info that is on this site, I know I have gotten much more out of my tractors with the help on GTT.

    This is a thread on some modifications I am making to a new 53" bucket connected to a 2032R.

    I am going to post many pics of the different phases of the build, I am simply doing this because I enjoy share ideas with members, I am not trying to show off.

    Enjoy!

    Welding

    my Nephew Justin came over and did most of the welding. He hadn't welded in a year and a half, not bad for a 120 volt Miller you've never used before. I wanted to show how we sanded the paint off, thought i forgot my angle grinder at work, can't find it? Anyway we are reading for testing!

    Enjoy

    Failed test, now what?

    installed a receiver and headed out back to lift my trailer, it is a 20' dovetail car hauler converted to a tractor trailer. Lot's of tongue weight, as I raise and lower the trailer I can see defection in the top and back part of the bucket, it's basically the receiver assembly is twisting the bucket. I had took about 1/4" with the jack, I may add a little positive with the jack while I weld. I have pics of the 2 stiffeners I came up with, the channel in the front with run the entire length of the bucket.

    Enjoy

    Did you have the gussets CNC laser, plasma, or water-jet cut?

    My first welding project since Junior High school was this, which is similar in functional idea to your bucket mods.
