I have been pondering magnetic mirrors for my BX80, and there are dozens of them.
I want the ones that have the magnets, to fit to the side of my loader arms. They range in
price from $24.99 to $100. They all appear to have similar quality. I don't like to buy
cheap crap, but wonder if they are all the same. What's other people experience with
mag mirrors.

I looked at that idea.. Bolting them on. I just didn't know if the $20 dollar mirrors were worth
the purchase. Seems if you get the mag ones, and don't have a support wire sometimes they can
get knocked off. i hate to drill through the loader support in case, I lose the mirrors to breakage.

Make a bracket so you don’t have to drill the support.

I purchased golf cart mirrors, and they were garbage. I opted for one that claimed to be better quality, and it was the same as the cheap mirrors that were being sold. The only difference was the price. They never stayed in adjustment, and the first twig to hit them knocked them off. I did see that Curtis Cab has some that appear to be better quality, however, they also have an expensive price tag on them.

I thought the mirrors all looked the same with different prices. Think I will just spring for the better one that cost about 100 smacks.

Seemed like a simple question to ask about the mirrors, but it does pay to ask questions of others
when researching a purchase. Saves a little money here and there, and not waste dollars on crap.
Thanks guys.

I bought the $27.00, 2 magnet mirror for my MX5100 a few months ago. For $27.00 I figured if it didn’t work out I’d just pitch it. Seems to be okay, but no great tests yet. It’s by far the cheapest thing I have bought for the tractor!

Got the cheapest pair from Amazon along with magnets, hold on great, don't use as much as I thought I would, see everything much better by turning my head.
