    Hello all!

    A big thanks to the fella who began this post:

    It got me to investigate why I was having the same problem as he was with slop between the bob-tach and the attachment.
    I own a bobcat S205
    I have created a little shutterfly site to explain what seems to be a design flaw that I found and areas that wear on the bob-tach as well from use.

    Hope it helps someone else out with the same trouble. I plan in the spring to have my bob-tach welded up and the issue corrected and hope to post my results on this site.

    I will post it here:

    Using washers to compress bob-tach spring to prevent wedge backing out.

    This guy has a good idea to prevent the bucket from falling off - it won't necessarily fix the slop between the bob-tach and the attachment however.

    Washers are cheap , they compress the bob-tach spring and it won't let the attachment wedge back out!

    I think I will try that if my welding job doesn't help.
