How to create a bump pad for mini loader?

Hi,  My mini loader has bump pads on the side but nothing covering the frame so I'd like to add something there.  I'm thinking about zip tying pipe insulation to it.  What is the largest pipe insulation available at Bunnings?  Any other ideas?  Thanks!

Re: Mini Loader Bump Pad Needed

Hi @Steve5,


The 38mm pipe insulation would be the largest that we have. Alternatively, you could cut up some Bastion 75mm x 10mm x 25m Adhesive Back Expansion Joint Foam. It has a self-adhesive side, so hopefully, it would stick to the surface. A few cable ties wouldn't hurt, either. We also have some foam mats that could be used.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
