This is one ugly loader arm repair, but it held, at least for the time being. Notice that the stress cracks are showing on the loader tower behind the arm. The tower supports the loader arm mounting pin and it was obviously repaired and body puddy covered it up. I see a lot of this arm repair as well as the tower repair on the 580 machines, the one pictured is a 1994 with around 4500 hours on the meter. About half the time when I have seen this repair I have found the cross bar of the arms, (in front of the radiator grill) has been re-welded as well.
