    Good for some guys maybe, but I know I could make one for way less.

    Looks like he does a neat job, and if you cann't weld, then price might be similar to having a shop build one. Doing it yourself with all new material should be less than $250.

    The hydraulic hook-up really should have adjustable flow control valves or the power angle is likely to be way too quick. A cushion cross-over relief would make it complete. Add another $150 - $200 for these & hose/fittings.

    That chain will jump off-skid loaders have alot more movement in that area-you need to bolt the chain on. Also, a skid loader can exert down pressure why not use that feature.

    I made my own plate this summer and I actually had more money stuck into the couplers and hoses than I had into the steel.

    Not anymore. I bought steel this weekend to make a bumper for my new dump truck. I bought what is called "Useable Drops" It is steel that has already been cut from the long piece and then what is left is sold. It is up to $.95 a pound. Last summer it was $.65 a pound.

    Still under the cost for an already made bumper.
