I don't have one...But I think you are correct-it should be welded!
Yep, you need those brackets as well. They live on the tractor year round, the other stuff comes off in the spring.Thanks alot for getting back to me so quickly guys.. Looks like This should be covered under warranty then as this was not made right from the factory.. Also I've noticed I never received the brackets that bolt to the tractor that you hang this mentioned bracket to.. I shouldn't have waited so long after I purchased the tractor to try and fit the blower to the tractor.. :banghead: LOL But I was so busy loving the loader it never crossed my mind till we finally are going to get some snow...
I believe I need these which never came with my tractor..
