Quick-Tach Universal Bucket Mount"I have five different buckets and I wanted an easier way to attach them to the Oliver 558 loader on my Deere 1630 tractor. Some of the buckets had a round back side that I didn't want to alter so I made a quick-tach plate that attaches directly to the loader cylinders and lift arms," says Fred Dunlop, Stayner, Ontario.
Dunlop used 1/2-in. steel plate to make the quick-tach plate. He used 3/8 by 3-in. angle iron and 1/2 by 3-in. flat bar to attach the plate to the lift arms. He welded four small pieces of 1-in. steel bar to the front side of the plate. The two upper pieces are notched to slip into the buckets where the cylinders previously attached while the bottom two pieces have holes for pins to attach to lift arms.
He spent about $50.
