This is something I started a couple of years ago, and I have changed my mine a few times on this but here is the 1st video I did of it.

I have an electric winch mounted on my 129 for raising my snow plow. Here are some pictures.

Hope fully these will give you some ideas.

I hadn't thought about bolting something under the grill, I may have to look into that.

I think I have figured out a way to mount the winch, the frame already has numerous holes drilled in it, so I don't feel bad about drilling more. But I think I can come along the side below the grill with some angle iron. Come up the front to about the hood, and mount the winch in front. I will have to add some bracing.

I'm tagging along on this. I've thought of doing something similar on my Case 446. Except I was gonna use the factory lift similar to what the blade uses and running another hydro spool for the dumping action. I tthought the Swisher bucket would be a shoe-in.

I'm also going to have to rework the mounts some, I have a couple of ideas. I need a piece of metal across the front, and I'm going to have to build a saddle for the back.

My bucket sits out pretty far, but I wanted it like that so I could get max lift on it. I sometimes put a 55 gal drum up on the tail of my trailer using bucket so I needed height. It does affect lift capacity, but I can still lift 350# in the bucket before my butt end starts getting air under tires, i could use more counter weight. Looks like the swisher bucket has more weight just in it than mine so that would even be more of an issue with yours.

I am working on a way, so I can just pin and unpin it from the tractor. The mount is in the very early stages now.

The bucket really isn't that heavy, I can pick it up and carry it for short distances.

Any progress on this project or did you can it?

I am about to buy a Swisher bucket to throw on my New Holland S14, and trying to determine how crazy I am based on others' success stories. So far my research is missing some information, such as successful completions by others of similar thought processes. If you need more ideas to jump start this project again, let me know, I have some ideas already.
