I would just get another piece of plate the same thickness and cut a piece that matches with the bottom half of the existing tie-down point, and weld it to the existing one. All you really need to do is reinforce the bottom of the loop to keep it from bending and fix the crack. If you do a neat job it will look factory installed.

The strength on the factory welds should be something like 60,000 psi or something, right? That bottom loop will break long before the entire tie-down bracket pulls off the frame. As long as you only use the tie-down points to secure the machine on a trailer for hauling, and not to tow stuff around, it should last as long as the machine.
