These guys actually have some decent fab ideas, but they cobble everything together and only know how to "booger" weld. I bought the front dump bucket for my suburban from them, after a few mods, it was worth the $75 I paid.

So here is their new creation, kind of neat idea, but I can only imagine the fab on it  i.e. notice the duct tape sealant on the hydraulic line.

I must've missed your post.

They regularly sell suburbans or home made suburban attachments on CL, mostly with the "honda" clones they get from Harbor Freight, usually a conglomeration of parts, never have hoods on them. 

As I said, they do have some good ideas, just carried out in redneck fashion. They doing fencing as,well, their "full time" job so I guess when they have no business, they build this stuff.

 

Here is the bucket I bought from them, you can see all the junk they use and just throw together. I did some cutting and re-welding, litte better design and works great for me.

If they don't have the relief set real low, if that auger hangs up, someone is going to get hurt mighty bad!  DANGEROUS!

That is my thought, I dont' see any type of safety clutch/slip.

 

I guess if you got the flow right it could be useful mounted to a 3pt. If they just cobbled it together there is no telling how fast (or slow) the auger spins.

What is that vertical 2x2 post that is cut and bent? ..... and what pulls up on that trip lever?

 

The vertical post held the trip mechanism. They just cut, bent, and then added a strap to the back and welded it all. They originally had a long bar that was connected to a mowing deck lift arm that was bolted to the side of their tractor that raised/lowered and then they had a rope or wire connected to the latch mechanism to trip the dump. I got rid of all that, moved the 2x2 over a bit and now it's a self trip when it get high enough, latch hits my winch arm that sticks out, dumps bucket. Since they do fencing, they uses a privacy fence gate latch. I have to add an extra plate to it as I bent it, but actually a good idea. Works pretty well. I've moved mucho yards of mulch, tons of rock/gravel/dirt, and sometimes actually leave it in dump position, lower bucket on ground and use to grade. After it dumps, I just lower it to ground while reversing and once low enough, the bucket re-latches.

As I said they have some good ideas, just typical redneck execution.

 

Here it is dumped, maybe you can see how it works, best pic I have

That's a simple rear bucket. Hadn't thought of something like that. Thanks for sharing it!

Not sure what to say Larry since it's a "front" bucket :D

It would probably work well on the rear too if it was shortened up and some type of actuator or winch mounted. It would be close enough you could make a handle, just reach around and trip it.
