Picked this up yesterday, there really isn't any markings on it but from online pictures looks like a Kwikway but would like verification! Also wondering if anyone has one mounted up on an Ariens and how the bracket supports work!ImageUploadedByTapatalk1431006581.234633.jpg

Great score on that one. Wish I could find one that cheap!

 

Post up some pics of what mount it has and what your tractor has. Got some real good fabricators on here. Maybe we can steer you along on a good mount.

You'll find here a KWIK-way manual to compare with your loader - maybe it works!

Sorry I do not think you have a Kwik-way loader.

I got mine without  the cylinders, so the cylinders are differnet.

 

It looks like the one I have.  It was make in Eagle Grove or Indianola, Iowa  by Wright_ Way.

Yup! It's a carbon copy of my Wright Way loaders, and in dire need of new leveling links.

 

When you make the new links, make them out of 1.25" square tubing with 1/8" wall, and 1/2" schedule 40 pipe for the ends reamed to 5/8" for the pins. Center to center distance is the same as the corresponding pin holes in the arms.

 

Read this thread before starting the installation.

I agree.  It looks just like my Wright Way as well.  It looks as someone was attempting some digging/ramming with the bucket to bend those leveling links.  Ramming speed!!  =)

Or they dumped something heavy out of the bucket on them!

Why square over solid round?

You can reduce the weight by a few pounds using square over round. The square corners give more strength allowing to use lighter wall steel.

Why square over solid round?

Round stock, whether hollow pipe or solid, is equally strong in all directions. For this particular task, substitute 'weak' for 'strong'. I'm actually recommending a heavier section than what the original is made from. The square tubing is 48% wider (and taller) and the wall  is 14% thicker. You could just as easily substitute 1" square tube and still gain sufficient strength to avoid a reoccurrence for most tasks.

 

I prefer a bit of overkill after having an original link snap off at the front end while under load. It came back to the post rather quickly. Note the diagonal bracing in the pic below. It was originally fabricated to serve as the reservoir like the original for this model loader. I ended up using the posts for reservoirs instead, and still used it for the diagonal bracing. Now that is overkill!

 

The bending is courtesy of using the bucket cutting edge for lifting the front of the tractor, whether to excavate, back blade, or change tires. Once bent, it will bend again with much less effort.

 

The square leveling links on this loader have seen over 1500 hours of service and payloads to 1250 lb, the weight of the crate at the garage entrance.
