Here is a picture of my largest bucket I just completed. I had a rear 8 foot blade I never used and decided to convert it into a front bucket for one of my mini loaders. Hopefully I will get to try it out this winter. Octnostorm.jpg

Thanks ,
My wife thought it was crazy huge !! and she just laughed at it's size. I can't wait to get a 12 inch snowstorm to try it out. We might get 2 to 4 inches tonight so may get to plow with the 455 tomorrow.

OH, now I could see the snowplow in that 3rd picture. Great job! I'd settle for just one front bucket...

Nice work. That thing is so pretty it seems a shame to scratch it up.
You live in the right state for snow. Upper or lower Michigan?

Great rebuild Don, glad you were able to repurpose an item you were previously not utilizing.
