    Heads up! Loose and missing bolts on loader mast mount!

    After many hours of moving tons of snow with my loader mounted plow and a few more tons with the loader bucket I discovered one bolt missing and one very loose on the loader mast mount. Checked bolts on other side and found one loose.

    I will now include a retorque of these bolts in my routine maintenance/inspection routine.

    I am currently having difficulty with my eyesight and find it very frustrating using the computer. Could someone be kind enough to look up the part number for these bolts and maybe find the torque value? I would be very grateful.

    Here's the loader maintenance page (below) from the H120 loader manual (Link to H120 Loader Manual).

    The schedule is to torque the bolts after the first 10 hours, then every 50 hours afterwards.

    Torque Mounting Frame and Mast Hardware: 230 ft. lbs. (310 Nm)

    Bolt (M16x90): 19M8485 (Link to part on GFP) $4.84
    Washer: 24M7053 (Link to part on GFP) $0.90

    What took you so long?

    Thanks a bunch Traction. I see now that I should have been retorqueing every 50 hours.

    You're welcome. It helped me to realize what I forgot to do at both the 10 hour and 50 hour mark.

    I thought I was on top of maintenance for my loader (keeping it greased every 10 hours) and didn't even realize I had to torque the loader bolts on a schedule.

    I shudder when I think of how I've been using the loader to clear last weeks snowstorm. Constantly banging the bucket to dislodge packed snow must have vibrated those bolts badly. Now, we are both the wiser having learned from my inattention to details.

    Take a quick look and make sure it didnt break off. Be sure to torque all the bolts. I would recommend removing bolts one by one and applying Loc-Tite (red 271). Torque to spec.

    I've checked mine twice and now have close to 800 hours on the tractor. Probably 200+ on the FEL. It was tight both times. So much so I tried to loosen one bolt, although I could do it, it was hard to do so I retighten it and haven't checked it since. Now I'll have to check it again tomorrow.

    Good advice to be sure. I will do as you suggest. Thanks!

    BTW: Does your username refer to being a rotary wing repairman?
