    I am looking to fabricate an angle blade to fit a wheel loader. I was wondering if anyone knows where to purchase or have either the cat i.t. hooks made or the female acs coupler plate? any advice would be appreciated.

    A good metal fab shop should do the trick. We used Ebling in Grand Rapids a number of times for the very same project you described.

    CAT dealer. Sure it may cost a few bucks extra but it will be what you want not something you hope will work.

    Something like this? Was on a JCB so standard skid attachments could be used.

    Thanks for the feedback, I was trying to avoid going to the cat dealer because I know i will have to shell out extra cash. I will give Ebling a call in the morning, and gusdust that attachment is pretty slick i have never seen anything like that before.
    Thanks again.

    We had that made for an articulating tele handler JCB. Cost a few bucks. No longer have the JCB so might get rid of it. It might have to be re-vamped to fit another loader. Have to check in to that.
