You all probably remember the 1655 with the loader.
Well had to get some more seat time tonight just because I needed to enjoy this thing a bit.

Well I knew this was not a very good setup as far as the mounting of the loader. Just playing and I managed to break that 6" channel off the frame.

I SHOULD of just put her on the side until I had time to get it mounted properly.

I am a sorry camper tonight but after I settle a bit I will show some Pics of the after math. Cam at work again.

Did anybody get hurt, don't worry about it stuff happens sometimes, fix it when you got time and we all know you'll do it right so it doesn't happen again.

Don, Don, Don.......it's all ok, it can be fixed! Never seen anything broken that couldn't be repaired. It had to be re-done anyway right? This way it gets fixed the right way. Look at it this way...nobody got hurt. Had it NOT broken, then you may not have repaired it, then the next time, you or someone else may HAVE gotten hurt. Look at it as a good thing! :thumbs:

Thanks Guys.
Now that you make me look at it in a positive way I feel much better.
Yes iron can be fixed and this will have me do the fix sooner and thus nobody will be hurt unintentionally.

Bet it'll be right when you're done, glad everyone is OK & (while disappointing) broken steel can be repaired, heads can't be. Sorry to hear about your misfortune, hope the repair isn't to difficult.

First off glad nobody got hurt. Second the good news is that broke stuff can be fixed!!!!!! It wasn't a mistake, you just found out how much stress the parts could take. Now go rebuild it better and have fun playing with it!
