I am looking forward to making a mount for it. I also have 2 electric actuators to use on it! :D

looks like neither of the actuators are there. Should be one on the bucket for dumping and one in the middle behing the bucket for lifting. You can get all the parts from the Johnny Bucket company.

Johnny Bucket is home! :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  I will have pics tomorrow. It looks like an older model and the winch appears to have been from the factory with a rope pull to dump the bucket. I have 2 actuators in the garage for it. But before I get to work on that the 6' fence must be finished. Only the posts are done. :(

Good going! Isn't it a pain when you get something and you have to finish something else before you can get started with the new piece.

I took a better look at it this morning and I do not see where this was used hardly at all! No wear on visible on the tooth bar or on the bucket. The only thing to be seen is rust on some of the hardware and a couple spots of surface rust.

The mount is from a Craftsman GT6000 according to the po. I will use it to make the mount for the CC129. The winch looks to be repairable. If not the winch on the snow plow will do double duty.

I got a couple of minutes and checked the "junk" winch and it was a rusted mess inside. I cleaned it up good and hooked it to my 14 volt drill battery for a second and it works! :thumbs: 

 

As time is available the design for a mount will be developed.

One year later and the design stage is finally going! This is what is called proper use of vaca time! GT repair, modification, maintenance and fabrication!

I've been  :watch_over_fence:

Can't wait to see what you come up with, I have the same type bucket, but no mounting brackets. Been thinking about this project for almost as long as you. (well maybe longer) Originally was going to make a simple 3 point to mount to the back of the tractor, but a lift of some kind on the front would be so much nicer.

If I had a bucket like that, I'd be building a FEL!
