I will take pics as I figure out the next step, this machine is well built except for the under carriage. The bracket behind the ears hold the hydraulic collector in place is heavier than the plate that the ears are welded to.

At times the repairs to earth moving equipment can be tricky. It is possible to over plate too much and concentrate the stress points.

Then there are the operators. Some of those blokes could break an anvil with a rubber hammer.

Ted, I think I would just cut out the torn plate area and weld a similar thickness into place and re- mount the hitch to it. If the hitch could be bolted on the bolts would become the failure point instead of the crossbar.

looks to me that they were pulling something they should not have(stump?) or were sunk and another machine was used to pull the hoe out.

I could be wrong (I am usually ) but it looks like this is the mount for the cylinder for the dozer blade. But they were doing something it was not designed for to rip out like that.
