I just put a few pieces of ¼X4 inch flat stock on edge for my cradle.Made about 3 inch spaces between each one,about a foot square. Alot cheaper.

If you have equipment you need a welder. I had some welding done on my loader on my tractor. Was something like $400.He came to me,that's why so high. I only had a small welder. Did not take me long after that to buy a bigger one.

Yup, you can probably buy a Lincoln "crackerbox" for what that cradle will cost.  I did.  I needed something at the tree farm because stuff breaks and transporting the Hobart wire welder was not a good option.
