Here's one for ya;
I bought a trailer almost 2 years ago. Just found out, after crawling under it, that it didn't have the right axles under it! I contacted the sales guys.. they sucked but put me in touch with the local factory and the guy in charge there immediately said he would take care of it. I dropped it off, got it back 2.5 days later, and it has new axles and a big apology for quality control missing it. They said they care of their problems and they did. I am happy to mention their name.. Southwest Trailers. They earned my respect and trust because EVERYONE makes mistakes but it takes a solid company to stand behind their products... SO POST THE NAME AGAIN in bold and get their attention.
That would be HIGH ROCK SKID STEER ATTACHMENTS. Owners name is MARK MORRIS.

I need to buy a grapple, rock bucket and another set of heavier duty forks sometime this spring. Not to mention a 4in1. Can you guess who I won't be buying from?

When buying 4in1 buy one that has replaceable cutting edges most are welded in

On a 4in1 buckets have 3 cutting edges

I don't have one but after looking at them I notice the ones are welded in that are used don't close all the way

Does anyone else think stickers and such on those attachments on High Rock attachments page look a lot like the Wildkat attachments? Maybe he was feeding you a line of BS about keeping guys in the shop busy and that's why the stuff is significantly cheaper.

I think you may be on to something Mark.

Ok, I loaded my pics on pb so I could show you guys what I'm talking about.

First Bucket. Mainly, just a really sloppy fit. This could cause undo stress and wear on the QA pins too. Th cylinders were really weak.

Here's the second bucket fully closed. I understand that with welded on cutting edges there will be a slight "hole" left over in the corners. The first one had about a 3/8"x3/8" hole. I was fine with that, but this bucket was just plain welded up wrong.

Virnig makes a solid bucket. I bought one of their rock sifting buckets and I use it a lot. It's heavy, too, which means it's got some iron in it.

I use Bobcat brand 4n1 and it's been good. Had it since '07 sees mostly farm use but it is built very heavy and closes strong. Will nearly cut through a t post (not saying much) but pretty cool to see that much power.

It's only a 66 inch but I've used it on my s750 to pull posts and dig with and it handles that stress fine.

I haven't owned Bradco attachments but some of the rental places carry them and seem to like them.

not so sure about that. I thought Bradco was in US and a lot of Bobcat stuff is made in Mexico.

That's what they told me at bobcat. Not all but most of it. He said there's only a few things bobcat actually makes.

I was purchasing a used Bobcat tooth bucket today and can confirm that Wildkat buckets are indeed made by High Rock. The seller had a Wildkat there. Same manufacturer for sure.
