When the front blade stopped lifting as high and then not at all. I knew something must have broke. :headscratcher: :facepalm:
I broke the bracket clean off that's welded to the frame rails that the lift cylinder mounts to on my 226. Looks like I got a welding job ahead of me. :facepalm:

I have been so hard on this thing, not abusively, but it's been worked really hard. I'm surprised it lasted this long.

I know it's not Funny for you Mike but whenever I see your Bad-Ass 226 weighted up I think that something will have to give up sooner or later.

Good luck on your repair and keep us informed on how it goes.

At least you have a few back-up's to do the work when the Low Pro need attention. :thumbsup:

You know what they say about a chain, Mike.. It's always the weakest link that fails first.
Yepper. I realized I had a bolt through the trip-stop hole on the blade so the trip springs were not in use. :facepalm: Hit something froze hard and somethings gotta give. :wink:

What you did to your axle pivot is the same as what I did to my 446. I didn't do the grease zerk thing though. Nice idea. :thumbsup:
