    Loader Bucket Spill Guard

    Previous owner dropped a log on the hood and left the normal dent. I see so many dented hoods make me wonder if it is OEM from JD

    So after fixin the hood I thought I would fab up a spill guard to hopefully protect the hood. Even tho I am aware of how easy it it to drop stuff onto the hood, old guys like me get random brain farts. Crap happens.

    They have a big wheel loader at the recycling center so eyeballed it a couple of times and I was off .....

    We all like pics, so here you go...

    First I had some brackets laser cut out of 3/16" steel. They are about 11" long.

    Then ordered 3/16" wall pipe- 1-1/2" dia, some 1/2" angle iron, and some 9ga expanded flattened sheet.

    Welded the brackets onto the bucket and pipe onto the brackets

    Then the expanded sheet welded on with the angle iron to reinforce and make the top edge safe. Pretty sharp stuff this expanded sheet.

    You can see the additional protection it provides...

    Total weight is around 18lbs. I have the 4 foot bucket so simply ordered 4 foot lengths of material.

    Threw some self etching primer on it... planning on painting the bucket anyways!

    Really doesn't affect the visibility.

    So here it is at full lift with full roll back. Hope it keeps those pesky logs off the hood...

    Little hard to see with all the green

    It is really solid. Thought I would need 1/4" stuff but 3/16" plenty. The pipe makes it really sturdy and the expanded sheet helps to keep the brackets from racking left or right. Looks adequate for a compact tractor. Not planning on pushing trees over with it!

    Looks great and very useful. Of course now you are going to try and cram twice as much into your bucket and then will have to fabricate a guard for your guard. Nice work.

    Hi All
    I wonder when JD is going to offer a self leveling loader on there smaller tractors like they do on there bigger tractors. It would eliminate the requirement for spill guards and forks would work alot better.
    Regards John
