yet another question on loader...

ok i have the lesco loader attached to the swing away mount and it seems like everything is fine. when i put the mount in the receiver it wobbles about a foot or two each way. i can't stand it. it seems like buying new equipment is more of a pain in the a#*. i am still waiting on the trailer attachment. (over a month now) and all the dealer can say is he doesn't know where its at.sorry just venting a little bit i just HATE when the dealer is costing me money. any help would be appreciated.

What is it that is wobbling?

When its swung out?

Is your reciever tube worn, or too big?

Need more info.

Mine did that too, never created a problem.

There are ways to stop it, reese hitch stabilizer and tie downs to the corners but you would have to remove them before swinging it.

Mine did the same. We welded brackets on the back of the right side of the mount which we then bolt to the truck. 0 wobble.

kenh do you have any picks of your set up? i would really like to see how they look. you would think that Lesco would have put a little thought into the design but that would be to good of an idea. thanks
