You should triangulate it with some braces on the top, that's how my bobcat land plane was built, doesn't flex at all if it gets loaded up!

Do you mean on top of the "platform"?
With the angle iron it should fall over the top if it gets too full.

Do i need to "triangulate" it if i already know where it is?

does that work in better in forward or reverse?

We do most of our grading backing up with a root grapple. Interested in an attachment like this. Our experience with the mini loaders is they don't grade as well as our full size skid.

This is the same as the one I have. You may not have the issue like I have where because of the steel mesh that does load up with some material. http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=h...9QEwAw&dur=672

Jcresourses: it's supposed to be used in reverse, but it may work well in forward- leveling before the tracks go on it.

Iceman: i haven't built it yet, just the quick attach part. Out of all the designs i saw, this one looked like it may function the best.

Yeah if yours is used in reverse you probably wont have any issues anyway. Mine is used in forward, as far as I know anyway, I only bought it at the end of last season, havent really had a chance to do much with it yet other than play around the yard with it.
