Nice work. I bet you'll like that grab handle. My B7510 FEL requires that a tranverse member be fitted, and it serves as a great handle when hopping on the tractor:

Make sure that bucket plate doesn't interfere with the SSQA mechanism when mounting/dismounting the bucket...

I like your mods.

Did you have to drill the loader for the 'grab handle' holes or were they there already?

I have been kicking around ideas for a grab handle, but have not figured out a 'no drill solution'.

I hope that chain never jumps / slithers-out or drops out of that box while shredding or mowing.

I like your handle project. I'm like a few others and haven't gotten around to adding a handle as I would like a no-holes drill design as well. I'm going to have to study my FEL and find a possible solution.

CiftonWaldo: What are you going to do with your receiver tube being located on top of your bucket? I like your setup with chain hooks and rope loops along with the receiver.

And the ”plate” welded across the top-lip of your bucket will go a long way to strengthening it and preventing it getting bent out-of-shape.

I did something similar, only I made it bolt on so I could mount either my thumb/grapple or the chain/D-ring bar.

The grapple also mounts to my forks and switches back and forth with four bolts. Been very handy.

The holes are all ready in my loader.

A drop hitch to move my trailer around.

My loader had the holes already.
Cool.

On your bucket plate, what is the purpose of those two "grab handles"?

Just "general purpose" handles, or are they for something specific?

Maybe for exercising off those beers?
