You may want to put more weld on the side plates of the bucket, as there's a lot of stress put on them.

 

Thank you for your answer.

So you think, that I should weld the side plates of the bucket all the way on the inside like I have done on the outside?

As it is now the inside is partly welded.

Forgive me for not reading closely.  No, if welded solid on the outside, the inside is perfect like it is.

The day will come some day.

I still need to do all the hydraulic pipes and hoses. I am also thinking a little about where to mount the hydraulic pump. Either on the side of the tractor or in the front below the hood.

I used to sell cutting edges for construction machinery.  You may want to put some holes in the cutting edge, and then buy, or make a bolt-on cutting edge. In America, we have a spacing called "Highway Punch" which has the first hole 3" (76mm) in from the edge, and then every 6" (152mm) thereafter.  If you buy a ready-made cutting edge, it will be harder steel, and also should have square, countersunk holes so you can put plow bolts in it to attach to the bucket. Use the spacing from the steel edge you bought.  The plow bolts will probably be 10mm or so. 

 

You bolt the blade on the bottom of the edge of the bucket, with the bolt head down (it's recessed into the blade, and the bolt sticking up into the bucket area.

 

Many cutting edges have the holes down the centerline of the blade, so when one side wears out, you can turn the blade 180 degrees and reinstall it with a good cutting edge.

 

FWIW.

Thx. for the advise.

I would like to have a cutting edge of hardened steel, but I don't know were to buy it here in Denmark.

When I find it I can always Mount it later.

There should be a dealer for Backhoe/loaders--like the Case 580, or JD400.  They use hardened cutting edges.  It may be a little long, but you could cut off the ends to fit.  . If not, find some 4140 steel, or a high-carbon steel that will still let you drill it.  Or, even just weld it on the bucket... best to pre=heat it.

I've somehow missed this thread until now Per..  That project is awesome and I'll wager you have ~30# of weld on the thing!!  

 

Great work and excellent fabrication skills as many folks have stated..   :thumbs:

Now it’s time to mount the hydraulic pump.

I would like to mount the hydraulic pump at the side of the tractor, but I could not find any space for it, so I had to mount it in the front below the hood.

 

IMG_0636.JPG

 

This picture shows the v-belt pulley with electric clutch in the front I will use to drive the hydraulic pump.

 

IMG_0643.JPG

 

This is the original PTO which has inspired me to the design of the base I will build for the hydraulic pump.

 

IMG_0641.JPG IMG_0640.JPG

 

These two pictures show the two big holes and the two holes in the triangles, I will use to for mounting the base for the hydraulic pump.

 

IMG_0645.JPG IMG_0646.JPG

 

The hydraulic pump is not intended for sideways forces, so I have bought an attachment bearing, where the hydraulic pump will be mounted onto. To drive the hydraulic pump I have bought a v-belt pulley which will be mounted to the shaft of the attachment bearing with a taper Lock.

 

IMG_0651.JPG IMG_0652.JPG

 

These pictures show the iron parts I have cut out for the hydraulic pump base. The two upper bushings go into the big holes in the frame of the tractor and the other two will be welded to the side of the hydraulic pump base.

 

IMG_0654.JPG

 

I have welded two nuts on the inside because there is very little space inside the frame to work with a wrench.

 

IMG_0655.JPG IMG_0656.JPG IMG_0657.JPG

 

All welded together.

 

IMG_0659.JPG IMG_0660.JPG

 

Here is everything mounted on the base.

Now it’s time to see if it will fit inside the frame of the tractor.

 

IMG_0661.JPG IMG_0662.JPG IMG_0663.JPG IMG_0664.JPG IMG_0665.JPG

 

It fits all right and only need to be painted. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  

 

The next will be to mount everything back on the tractor and the do the hydraulic plumbing, but I am still waiting for hydraulic pipes, hoses and some fittings I have ordered.

I forget, but do you use a laser or water jet to cut your metal so perfect?  Would absolutely love having access to something like that!  

  Great work you're doing!

No. I only use a metal band saw, a grinding machine with cutting dish and hand file.

Like the rest of the build... VERY professional. Nice to see quality work without using high dollar equipment.

 

One question; how do you know tha thte pump isn't intended for side loading? Or is it standard for them NOT to be designed for sideloading. I ask because now I'm in the design phase and the pump I bought does not specify what type of drive should be used. Thanks!
