Default Re: What is this for?

Looks like it'd be for tiltys without a gripper, so when taking it off and going direct mount, when leaving the tilty on a the bucket, it won't roll backwards.

I am trying something similar on my bucket mods, a rear ppoint to hang a rotator from to save taking the bucket off to shift timber with the grab. Will it work, who knows!
