Yes , that is the home made bucket I made for my mini wheel loader. That bucket used to be a rear blade I made 15 years ago , then I mounted it on the front of the loader as a blade, then I had a idea to try to make it into a bucket. It has worked great now for four winters.

   Todays picture shows me moving more stuff around. I packed away the first four tractors in the back shed today . :D

Todays picture shows two smaller projects. Two of my three jd 110 round fender tractors was missing the variable speed inspection plate. So I decided to make two more from the pattern of the original one. Nothing fancy but much nicer than the whole .

  Also one of the 110's had no throttle linkage or choke cable. So I built a new bracket to hold a new choke cable and made a new throttle cable linkage . Not original but now it works just fine.

No , The bucket was built light duty for snow only. The little 50hp loader does a excellent job for what I need to keep all my snow from the front yard and haul it to the backyard. And it is fun doing it. :dancingbanana:

   Today I removed the forks and attached the home made bucket I made a few years ago. Also you can see the rear box scraper I made out of a old 59 inch jd snowblower . My neighbor was hauling it to the junkyard and I asked him if I could have it and he said yes and he threw in a set of tire chains too .

  I love getting free stuff when I can bring it home and actually use it. :smilewink:

  The little Ranch King/ Cat tractor looks pretty cute sitting out in the sun. :D

It all looks great!, it's going to be interesting to see how the "CAT" does.

Have fun with your snow!

Three inches of snow for us tomorrow in Gaylord .

 Todays picture shows my two jd 455 deisels in the shop now . One is getting cleaned up after summer and fall use and the other one is getting checked over for use starting tomorrow with the snow. :rolling:

  I bought these two tractors 16 years ago brand new. One has 1300 hours and the other one has 199 hours. They still look pretty good yet :thumbs:

No, now that I bought the jd z 425 neither 455 will have any purpose around here.

  Life is GOOD ! Now I know what they talked about when they said your golden years.

  Here are a few of my handbuilt all steel one of a kind toy tractors .

  The whole time I built these tractors I was thinking of the day I would be working on garden tractors making half scale working ones.  Two years ago I bought my first one and today I am done . With 17 little tractors in my yard now I can just tinker on them everyday. :dancingbanana:

Another project I really want to do is buy a 6 foot snowblower and a 30hp vtwin and mount it on the front of my mini loader. I would make it much lighter than this one but it would work simlar. Low range in my little loader is very slow and would work great for this application. :thumbs:

That would be nice!

 

A friend (farmer) has a snow blower that goes on his 200+hp Steigher 4X4 articulating tractor, he said when you go into a big snow bank it will kill the tractor!

 

Have you gotten any white fluffy stuff yet???

We just got two inches of snow on Sat.

   Today I decided to try to pedal the old 455.

  With only 208 hours and a brand new snowblower it looks pretty nice.

  Got to make room for the brand new jd 4x4 748 with the larger 54in. snowblower :dancingbanana:

I parked the jd by the road yesterday and had people stopping all day . We'll see today if any of them come up with the money :wave:

  A few weeks ago I bought this JD z-trak , the owner did not know if the engine ran or if the hydraulic drive worked. But I bought it anyway . After a half a day puttering cleaning it up and making a few simple adjustments it fired right up and drove perfect. :dancingbanana:

   I have mowed my lawn and done fall cleanup with it and I love it :thumbs:

  $600.00 was a gamble but this is my best buy in many years. :D

I thought you came to your senses and were going to say your buying a Kubota instead :D :rolling: :thumbs:

$600 seems like one heck of a buy on the zero turn mower, you got lucky there :worshippy1:
