A friend of mine has a JD 3020 with a JD 48 loader he bought new. Last week while using the loader,
the bucket cylinder tabs that attach the cylinder to the loader broke. He has checked with his JD dealer and the cylinder and/or the bracket is no longer available. He also checked salvage yards and none have a cylinder or the bracket. I have attached pictures that show the broken part. Anybody else ever run into to this failure and have a suggestion on a possible repair. Thanks. Al

There are several options for the cylinders and the part was available as a service part

Thanks for the information. I was able to find the part on the "New JD Parts Site", after some trouble. Much harder to use than the old JD parts site. Anyhow, looks like the part needed is still available to order for $750. Will give the information to my friend tomorrow. Not sure why the dealer didn't tell him that part is still available to order. Expensive but much cheaper than a new loader. Thanks. Al

And probably easier and better than trying to cobble something together that might work

AJB, I agree with finding a replacement cylinder at a tractor salvage yard. Aftermarket cylinders will not have those 2 "pins," and welding them back on probably will not be as strong as it was and will break again. 1 option that I did to my 48 last year was to convert it to twin tip cylinders, like a 148.

Your fix with adding two cylinders from someplace like Surplus Center is what I would do if in need of a bucket cylinder for a 48. Even if Deere still had them the price would be about as much as the loader would be worth. I like your quick tach plate for the skid loader buckets. I plan on having one made for my 46A loader sometime in the near future. Tom

I would remove the broken cylinder and take it to a local hydraulic shop to see if they can spec out a new cylinder that will fit: Parker; Miller; etc. What condition is the condition of the rest of the loader?

Abilene Machine in Abilene KS used to have several 48's at the "back of the lot". I don't know if they'd part them out but it might be worth a call. Haven't seen any elsewhere. I wouldn't know how to bust one of those if I wanted to. A machine shop could probably mill out what's left and make it "new", but they'd be proud of their work money-wise. Good Luck.
