    Yes some are harder to grab. The pucks down by the bottom of the loader where the arms rest against the frame come in different sizes. The smaller pucks allow the arms to drop lower. This can help, I have left the size that it came with. If you put the top of the QA under the lip and drive forward slightly, that helps as well.

    Let me know how you like that 4n1. If you could send me some pictures of it, I'd appreciate it. I'd buy one at those prices.

    No problem at all. I will be posting some detail photos once I get it here. The owner of the company said to take a look at it and refuse delivery if it's not up to my expectations and he'll refund my money and pay return shipping. That seems pretty confident to me. When I asked about the lower than normal pricing, he said that he likes to keep the boys working in the shop and would rather keep the guys busy and prices lower than take a chance on losing any of them.

    Just got my shipping today confirmation email. That's a pretty quick lead time.

    I sold a used 72in 4n1, bobcat brand, in decent shape for almost what those cost new.

    My bucket arrived yesterday and looks real beefy.

    I need to figure out routing for the hoses. I've seen heavy springs used and a metal rod/circle setup. I'm open to suggestions.

    FFC-Paladin sells a hose router that I think is excellent. You wield the plate to the attachment then a wand with a spring type section bolts to the wielded portion. The hose is held to the flexible bracket by a two piece hose holder made of urethane. The last ones I got I had to email them directly, it was not one the website but that may have changed. They work well.
