First off, stevepfrm great to meet you and thank you!
Here are a few photos of before and after. This quick hitch is spot on. I just need to get a couple more larger pins for top hitch of the hay spear. I don't mind having pins a size smaller for the bottom of the quick hitch. It makes it easier to pull them out and in, but like good snug ones for the top.
Led lights are on order, should be here this week. By the time haying season comes I will be ready! I have a New Holland 14', 1475 to pull behind it. This will make a beautiful pair!
The reason for the washers welded to the bottom bin... great place to wrap a chain around for lifting. My dad taught me that trick. strongest lifting point on the loader. Make that pin about 2" longer and weld an oversized washer to it so the chain wont slip off.
