Loaders are notoriously hard on tractors, especially when people start using them for tasks above what they were designed to handle.  Unfortunately, almost everything we do with them turns out to be something that is.  You probably did not get an instruction book with it, but it it would behoove you to try and find one.  The book will tell you what to avoid and the capacity & its limits.  Add-on blades and larger capacity buckets than the loader and tractor were designed for are both to be avoided.  I guess I should have mentioned that earlier. ;D

 >:( NO! No! No! OOOOOOOOO!!!! Dang it all!!!

Remember back when I was going to buy this I said, People expect too much and over work their machine? Yes, I did.

My welds held fine and the plow functioned perfectly. Until the right outer axle housing cracked. I heard it and got off the machine to check all my welds. They were fine. Then the right front wheel stopped going round. Oh look, gear oil.everywhere.

Just a $300 OOPS! Um, I'll be using just the loader bucket for the rest of the winter. :-\ :-[

Moe, you might enjoy seeing THE FOUNDER, starring Michael Keaton.  It is the story of Ray Kroc's purchasing and ROBOTICIZING the McDonald's fast food industry in its infancy AND screwing the two McDonald brothers out of any and all royalties he had promised them for the already franchised businesses they had worked so hard to create. >:D

  I like Romance movies,  If I want to see people screwing other people and getting screwed themselves, murder, mayhem, and other forms of mischief all I have to do is watch cable news, or tune in to the Vikings.  (grin) 

Now I get it......you love living in your own fantasy world! :lol:

  Actually, you aren't too far off from the truth,  it's my reality and I'm happy with it.

  One of my many sayings is "This is my world, if you don't like it, get the hell out of it".

I can't think of one item that I would or could buy that is 100% made here. My ford truck is made in Mexico from parts made all over the world. I buy produce from central and south america, I can't tell you where my Sony TV is made. Sony, ford, and Milwaukee are the only three brands I am loyal to and am sure they manufacture little if anything in this country.

Since this seems to have turned into a TBT thread instead of a big knife thread, I just thought I'd throw out that Bark River also makes a Tracker or Trakker as they call it.  Both Knives Ship Free and DLT Trading have them.  About $325.

  There's a couple of good video reviews on the Bark River version, if I run across them again I'll post a link,  this thread was intended to be about the Tracker styled "big knife", but wasn't meant to exclude other styles of large knives.
